About The Female Quotient’s Girls’ Lounge
The Girls’ Lounge was born after founder Shelley Zalis experienced the power of the pack in 2013. Zalis invited some girlfriends to join her at the male-dominated Consumer Electronics Show, and told them to invite their friends.
About 50 women ended up walking the floor together. It was a “heartbeat moment” where the minority felt like the majority. What started as an informal female gathering has turned into a movement that emphasizes collaboration and mentorship to activate real change.
In addition to the Girls’ Lounge, The Female Quotient also offers research and strategy solutions for forward-thinking corporations to give companies and leaders the tools they need to design the culture they want. Their mission is to advance gender equality in the workplace. When you put women in any equation, the equation gets better.
