    Get to knowGXRL

    GXRL is a megaphone for female voices and a community of empowered women who define our own futures. GXRL is focused on sharing women's stories and on having real conversations because we think it is through sharing our stories that we learn what is possible and make progress toward understanding one another.

    We strive to share information, provide tools, and entertain and inspire each other.

    We are serious about our mission, but we are able to laugh at ourselves, too.

    And, we really want to hear from you. If you have a story to share, or need advice, or just want to comment about something you read in an article, heard on the podcast, or have going on in your life, drop us a line. Our inbox is always open.


    To inspire women and nurture their dreams one story at a time.



    We are unabashedly enthusiastic about supporting women's success. We think that by advancing women’s power, we advance equity for everyone.


    We seek what is best for GXRL listeners, readers, members at all times.


    We are transparent both internally and externally.


    We support all women, regardless of age, ethnicity, religion, ability, class, size, or place on the gender spectrum.


    We believe that we shine brighter and rise higher when we support each other and value others' beliefs, opinions, and input.


    It is through sharing our experiences and stories that we learn what is possible for ourselves.
