Gloria Pitagorsky is co-founder and partner of Heard City, the boutique sound design studio behind many of the most extensive advertising campaigns. Founding Heard City in 2012 with two other partners and turning it into one of the top-performing audio post companies with a studio in Flatiron, NYC.

Demonstrating her commitment to mentoring and supporting women in technology, film, and advertising, Gloria serves on the mentoring committee for She Runs It and the Center for Arts Education. This past year, she helped launch a Mentoring Program for AICP to promote Equity & Inclusion in the production industry. She also traveled to Guatemala, her birthplace, as an Ambassador for Every Mother Counts, a nonprofit aiming to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother. On this trip, she brought a group of doulas a birthing chair to use for their center. The cause is near to her heart since she is a proud mother herself -- her son, Jayson, is a recent graduate of Tufts University.
