Part lawyer, part clinician, long time Washington-insider, Gwen is a seasoned thought leader and creative magnet who brings decades of expertise to the discussion with one aim in mind: ensuring patients are heard and their input is valued.
A storyteller at heart, Gwen helps biopharma companies and advocates tell a better story — one that captures the essence of what it means to improve or save a life.
Gwen has a unique ability to navigate complex organizations -- understands the passion of advocates and helps them make their strongest case for support in many ways. She is candid, responsive and creative in her approaches to policy and philanthropy. It was a pleasure to work with Gwen when she was the "hub" for Planned Parenthood's relationship with Bayer. Her hands-on and "roll the sleeves up" approach to the work together made every interaction productive and meaningful.
I have had the great pleasure to know Gwen Mayes as our paths have crossed in women's health advocacy for the past few years. She is smart, articulate and generous with those who seek her counsel and much sought after guidance.
