The past few days, we’ve had the privilege of attending The United State of Women Summit with The Girls’ Lounge. The event celebrates all that women and girls have achieved (and will continue to achieve) in the way of gender equality, economic empowerment, health and wellness, educational opportunity, entrepreneurship, leadership, and more.

The mission of The Girls’ Lounge, like the Summit, aligns with Meural’s own philosophy: “working to evolve the business ecosystem to achieve equality and equal opportunity for all. We empower women, encourage them to network and support one another with exclusive girl-focused men-inclusive events, original content and a powerful network of like-minded women.”

At Meural, we have strong beliefs about a lot of topics—the democratization of art, for example—and one of those is workplace inclusiveness. We pride ourselves on having a gender diverse office, and allowing for the many different lives our employees lead.

It’s been a pleasure to hear from so many inspiring leaders—like President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Vice President Joseph Biden—and to listen to the stories of so many strong women. We’re honored to have been a part of such a monumental event, and can’t wait to see what the future brings
