The Unstoppable Cultures Fellowship is led by Ginger Hardage, who recently retired as Senior Vice President of Culture and Communications at Southwest Airlines after an illustrious 25 years, where she served as a member of the CEO’s executive leadership team.

At Southwest, Ginger was a tireless ambassador of the world-famous Southwest Culture, leading to honors like 23 consecutive years on FORTUNE’s “Top 10 Most Admired Companies in the World” list. Most importantly, Ginger helped champion the values that have made Southwest a culture of enduring greatness – we put people first, we treat customers like family, we nurture our culture, and we try to change ahead of the times.

In addition to leading Southwest’s “Best Place to Work” initiatives, Ginger led the airline’s culture and communications evolution, expanding the communication functions to include more robust internal communications capabilities and a more focused corporate philanthropy program.

She also led a team of 150 as well as the airline’s Culture Committee, employee recognition and engagement, and all company-wide celebrations.

Ginger's mission is to help you build and sustain a culture of enduring greatness in your organization.

Fellows can ask questions and get feedback during the Masterclass Experience from Ginger and our team of talented mentor coaches. These fellow culture champions bring expertise from the greatest organizational cultures in the world.
