Rudd, which specializes in public affairs for philanthropic, equity and community development initiatives, also works with the Chicago Community Trust, the League of American Orchestras and St. Barnard Hospital.


Mower works with Iroquois Healthcare Association in New York state to help it attract candidates to entry-level jobs in healthcare through a multimedia campaign called The Caring Gene. The campaign spanned websites, TV, radio, outdoor, digital, video and social. Mower’s IHA team reached out to current caregivers to find out why they choose to do what they do and then challenged job seekers to consider if caring is in their DNA. An online Caring Gene quiz helped candidates identify if they’re a good fit, then pointed them to job openings and tips on how to start a career in the industry. To date, the campaign has netted more than 900,000 website visits, 80,000 job searches and 31,000 click-throughs to provider job sites.
