RACHEL NOERDLINGER APPOINTED TO THE DIVERSITY ADVISORY BOARD AT OGILVY & MATHER, ONE OF THE LARGEST MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS NETWORKS IN THE WORLD

 

Public relations expert Rachel Noerdlinger, President of Noerdlinger Media, and Executive Vice President of Communications for Reverend Al Sharpton and National Action Network, has been appointed to the Diversity Advisory Board for Ogilvy & Mather, one of the largest communications networks in the world. She joins a diverse board of other high level external members who represent industry, academia and the community, including Kevin Liles, Executive Vice President of Warner Music Group, Elena Nachmanoff, Vice President of NBC News, Bonnie Wong, President of Asian Women in Business, Laurel Richie, CMO of Girl Scouts of America, Natatia Lehra Griffith, Assistant Director at the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and Jay Hershenson of CUNY. The Ogilvy & Mather Diversity Advisory board is led by Donna Pedro, The Chief Diversity Officer and John Seifert, Chairman of Ogilvy North America. The Diversity Advisory Board provides the agency with objective, experienced insight and assistance enabling Ogilvy to treat diversity and inclusion from the widest possible perspective.

Ogilvy & Mather embraces diversity and inclusion in its hiring, training, and retention of agency employees and the company firmly believes that a racially, ethnically and culturally diverse workforce makes for richer consumer insights and understanding. The belief is ingrained in the Ogilvy culture—going back to the founder David Ogilvy who was the Chairman of the Board of the United Negro College Fund.

In her thirties, Rachel Noerdlinger has over sixteen years of experience and is a leader in the field of public relations. She graduated from Mills College in Oakland, California, in 1992 and moved to New York after being accepted to a graduate program at Columbia University. She left Columbia after meeting her future mentor Terrie Williams, one of the top public relations practitioners in the country and she joined the Terrie Williams Agency in 1993. She left the Terrie Williams Agency as Vice President in 2000 to become the personal public relations advisor to Attorney Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr. and Reverend Al Sharpton.  She is currently the head of a public relations consulting firm bearing her name, Noerdlinger Media. Rachel is Executive Vice President of Communications for Reverend Al Sharpton and the organization he founded National Action Network. She has brought visibility to critical cases in civil rights such as the Sean Bell case, the Jena Six case, and the cases of Abner Louima and Amadou Diallo. Ms. Noerdlinger is currently helping to bring visibility to Rev. Sharpton and the organization’s work around the issue of education—the civil rights issue of the 21st century.  Rachel Noerdlinger was also Press Secretary for Rev. Sharpton’s 2004 United States Democratic Presidential run.

Rachel Noerdlinger has been featured in Essence Magazine, The Washington Post, The New York Times and The Amsterdam News for her work. Noerdlinger currently lives in New York City with her 12-year-old son Khari.
