Julie Batliner Wins She Runs It Working Mothers of the Year Award

Published on February 28th, 2017

Carmichael Lynch Relate President and Carmichael Lynch Managing Partner Julie Batliner has been recognized by She Runs It as a Working Mother of the Year for 2017.

Batliner is one of 26 honorees nationwide. Winners were designated among three categories – Trailblazer Moms, Established Moms, and New-To-Motherhood Moms – recognizing the unique career challenges and choices that women navigate at various stages of motherhood. The honorees were chosen from more than 250 nominations.

“A big part of our mission is to accentuate the role models who have learned lessons and developed strategies that pave the way for other women in the industry to advance into leadership roles,” said Lynn Branigan, President and CEO of She Runs It, a not-for-profit organization that exists to propel women into leadership roles in marketing and media. “The hundreds of pages of nomination forms create a virtual ‘how-to’ for working moms who achieve success at work and in life. The submissions also give us insight into the policies and practices of companies that make help women pursue leadership roles while raising families.”

Batliner has served as president of Carmichael Lynch Relate since 2015, where she’s played an integral role in driving the agency’s record revenue growth — more than 45 percent in 2016 — and maintaining a remarkably low staff turnover rate of less than 2 percent. She has won recognition for her work from PRWeek and the Silver Anvils, among others, and is a recent winner of two Silver Stevie Awards for Women in Business — all while being the mother to two young children.

The 2017 Working Mothers of the Year will be honored February 28, during an awards luncheon in New York City. View the full list of winners and their profiles at Adweek.
