Check out this video on the new EO branding!  

EO is excited to launch their new brand. It is fresh, vibrant, and a better reflection of the organization. The new EO brand is much more than a logo and a visual identity. It is about members and their EO journey together. It is about interconnection, inclusion, transformation and growth. The logo mark is a dynamic circle – bright rounded shapes that stack up together to form a striking whole. It expresses the EO community, values and mindsets.  The new brand is a symbol that embraces the EO heritage and the EO that is being created for the future. We are a unified global network of over 14,000 members, with 198 chapters in 61 countries. This is the strength of our brand.
