Alicia Driskill, Founder & CEO of EvolveHer, Launches Multi-Channel Media Platform - the glu


CHICAGO, March 8, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- On International Women's Day, Alicia Driskill, Founder and CEO of Chicago's first women's co-working space EvolveHer, announced the launch of the glu, a multi-channel media platform created to amplify women's voices, expertise and unique stories around the world.

The glu unites female co-working spaces and other female communities as part of this first-of-its-kind multi-channel collaboration. The digital platform is a hub for women to connect, learn, and grow while giving women the necessary tools and resources to grow their business and personal brands. The ecosystem also includes live events and curated experiences.

"The glu is the future for women in business, providing a people-powered solution for everything professional women need to grow and learn," says Alicia Driskill, Founder and CEO of EvolveHer and the glu.

Now more than ever, women are valuing collaboration over competition. In this spirit, the glu has developed strategic alliances with several female co-working spaces across the country such as The Slate - Dallas, Rise Collaborative - Denver & St. Louis, The Emerald - Scottsdale, Femology - Detroit and Dayhouse Coworking - Highland Park.

"Women crave a space that inspires them -- and a community that will truly support them both personally and professionally," says Jodie Slater, co-founder of The Slate.

EvolveHer recently acquired Chicago Woman Magazine for the sole purpose of launching the glu. Moving forward, the existing Chicago Woman platform will be completely rebranded and reimagined under a new name and philosophy, becoming a global digital and event platform with an annual print publication. The digital space will also feature content created by an inspiring group of women around the world.

As part of the glu's launch, the team released a video commemorating International Women's Day and celebrating the strong women across the globe who will contribute to this new online community. The glu site is now live, featuring stories and insights from women who are experts in their fields. The resource center complete with action-based tools and supporting content will launch in 2H.
