MGM Resorts Celebrates Women’s History Month with Lioness Logo Transformation

MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) temporarily transforms the company’s iconic Leo the lion logo into Leona the lioness to recognize Women’s History Month, celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women all over the world throughout the month of March.

MGM Resorts continues to lead gender diversity on the Las Vegas Strip – having

appointed the first two women presidents of Strip resorts and the first female Executive Chef in the food and beverage industry on The Strip. In 2019, Ann Hoff, President & COO of Excalibur Hotel & Casino, was promoted as one of three Group Presidents for MGM Resorts.

You can see Leona firsthand by visiting MGM Resorts International’s social media channels, following their #TakingCenterStage campaign and visiting mgmresorts.com.

Based on 2018 data, MGM Resorts was recognized by Forbes as one of the Best Employers for Women in 2018, with 50.8% women in their domestic workforce and 43.8% women in their domestic management workforce.

Phyllis A. James, chief diversity and corporate responsibility offer added, “As we look for opportunities to uplift women in 2019, we are thrilled to put our efforts toward our 13th annual Women’s Leadership Conference, one of our country’s premiere conferences dedicated to the development of women for leadership and advancement in all walks of life.

This year’s conference is scheduled for August 5-6 at MGM Grand, Las Vegas.” Women’s History Month began as a local celebration in Santa Rosa, California. The Education Task Force of the Sonoma County (California) Commission on the Status of Women planned and executed a “Women’s History Week” celebration in 1978.

The organizers selected the week of March 8 to correspond with International Women’s Day. The movement spread across the country as other communities initiated their own Women’s History Week celebrations the following year.
