Over the course of a decade leading Google’s marketing efforts, Lorraine Twohill has shown that she’s a force to be reckoned with. As just the second woman in 25 years to win the Creative Marketer of the Year award at the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity, she aims to create a corporate environment where people from all backgrounds are supported and represented.
For International Women’s Day earlier this year, Google’s homepage featured a series of images created by women, which highlighted quotes from women around the world, past to present, including Frida Kahlo, Yoko Ono, Millicent Fawcett and others.
Twohill also excels when it comes to giving back to the community: She created a scholarship to help disadvantaged students attend her alma mater, Dublin City University – an initiative that helped her win
a Distinguished Leadership Award from The Ireland Funds, a philanthropic organization. Her combination of creative leadership and community engagement make her a stand-out in the marketing world.
