Spotlight: Girls educates, inspires and activates girls and women to take center stage, step into your light and become the leaders we’ve all been waiting for. A "Best for the World" certified B Corp based in Oakland, CA, Spotlight: Girls is a consulting firm that creates and produces programs, media, events, and campaigns focused on gender and racial justice.

Co-Founders, Allison Kenny and Lynn Johnson met in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2002. They fell in love while singing show tunes, hiking in the redwoods, and directing kids in plays. One summer, 18 girls showed up to a church basement in Oakland, CA where Lynn & Allison would be their Play Directors. The play was all about the magic and power of being a girl. Many years, thousands of kids and hundreds of plays later, Allison and Lynn now work with Girl Advocates all over the country.

The issues they address in their work are what matter most to girls, women, femmes, and gender non-conforming folks:

  • How do we overcome the perfectionism, violence and oppression we face in order to take center stage in our lives and communities?
  • How do we stand up, speak out and share our wisdom and ideas so that we can best address our most pressing problems?
  • How do we make the spaces where we live, work, learn, and play safe, inclusive, and equitable for all of our identities?
  • How do we care for ourselves, our families, and our communities in radical ways that allow for healing, growth, and transformation?
