Edelman has signed on as the sole communications shop to the G7 Business for Inclusive Growth Coalition, which has committed to investing $1B to advance the human rights of more than 100M people, so far.

The Coalition, which will be officially launched by French President Emmanuel Macron at the G7 summit in Biarritz next week, is dedicated to advancing workplace inclusion, diversity and value chain inclusiveness.

Marion Darrieutort, GM of the Paris office, will represent Edelman at the G7 session.

Her firm has established a goal that 50 percent of top leadership positions will be held by women in 2020. Females currently hold 47 percent of the top jobs.

The No. 1 independent shop also says it will reach a racially/ethically workplace diversity ratio of 30 percent in the US by 2022, up from 27 percent now.
