we create events that empower women

we engage women

Women make 85 percent of all consumer purchases and 91 percent of them don't feel like marketers get them. This may be because the messaging and content is created predominately by male creative directors (89 percent of all creative directors are men).

L13 is part of the solution. We are "female experts" with years of experience engaging women with authenticity and respect. 

we employ women

We need more women in leadership positions. Currently, 11 percent of creative directors are women. 14.6 percent are executive officers, 8.1 percent are top earners, and 4.6 percent are Fortune 500 CEOs. And yet, women account for 50.8 percent of the U.S. population.

One of the greatest contributing factors for this inequity, is dated workplace cultures. Talented women are leaving the workforce. Women value flexibility over title and compensation.

L13’s 100% women teams address these disparities head on. Operating out of remote offices and with flex-time hours, we make it easier for women to do all of the things they need and want to do!

we mentor women

Our mentoring initiative is more than a program, it's an integral part of our business. 2/3 of Americans believe it's important for women starting their careers to have women in leadership positions as role models. Yet, only 63% of women have had a formal mentor.

We mentor women starting their careers as well as women already established in their careers. We're building a network of support for wherever women are on their career path. Each consultant is a mentor, paired with a mentee for a year-long paid mentorship. The mentees are women in the last year of college, just beginning their careers, or returning to the workforce.


my story

In the spring of 2015, I was a single mom of two kids. After a lengthy and traumatizing harassment case at my last place of work, I was taking time to reconnect with the kids and figure out what I wanted to do next. I was angry about what I had experienced in my professional life: sexual harassment, being paid below my level of experience, and struggling to succeed in a workplace culture that doesn’t support working moms, especially single working moms.

I knew I was not alone. The statistics to support my plight were well documented with no singular solution.

L13 is my #metoo solution. My goal is to empower women at all stages of their careers so their voices are heard for the benefit of ALL.
