we’re in this
together

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. Her extensive healthcare background gives her a unique perspective and knowledge base when it comes to seeking guidance with federal regulators and thought leaders in Washington DC. She is respected by her colleagues and business associates, and her sense of humor is superb. Lucky are those who are able to learn from her, work with her, and enjoy her keen mind and sharp wit.

When she gets a goal in her sights, she rarely misses. Above all else, her passion for the important things in life is extremely contagious.

Is Patient Storytelling a Civic Duty?
06.5.2019

During a meeting with the American College of Not-to-be-Named-Doctors, their staff shared with me that the Incoming President’s plan was for it to be “the year of the patient.” Immediately, I wondered why it wasn’t every year.
