Audrey Gelman steps down as CEO of The Wing as employees stage a digital walkout criticizing the company for failing to ‘practice the intersectional feminism that it preaches’

Evelyn Hockstein/For The Washington Post via Getty Images Audrey Gelman, founder and CEO of The Wing, is stepping down from her position at the company. Gelman reportedly sent an email to Wing members that said she decided to step down “to bring The Wing along into a long-overdue era of change.” The Wing is a women’s social club heralded by members as a place to gather and build professional networks, but it came under fire from former employees earlier this year, some of whom criticized it as elitist and uncomfortable for workers of color.
