About Phenomenal

Phenomenal is a female-powered lifestyle brand that brings awareness to social causes. Phenomenal launched on International Women’s Day 2017 with the expectation that it would last just one month for Women’s History Month. Instead, on the first day, the campaign remarkably sold 2,500 t-shirts to benefit its nonprofit partners, and has grown ever since.

Phenomenal has now been running and creating positive impact for over three years, during which time it's seen huge success, establishing a digital audience of over 625 million, and receiving support from more than 1,000 celebrities and thought leaders like Serena Williams, Valerie Jarrett, Jessica Alba, Issa Rae, Eva Longoria, and other influential women.

While the original Phenomenal t-shirts are Phenomenal's flagship, viral product, the platform has since expanded and regularly works to grow its impact and connection with the socially-minded women who support it. For example, to deepen engagement with women professionals, Phenomenal launched a "tech tour" at major companies throughout Silicon Valley, including Airbnb, Google, Salesforce, and Uber. The tech tour program evolved into a fireside-chat series and other community events aimed at highlighting women in leadership, and inspiring meaningful discussions around advancing equity and opportunity in the workplace.

Phenomenal also has curated over 30 pop-up portrait studios across the country, providing access to a simple and often overlooked tool for women in the digital space. In addition to always working to increase its impact work, and to providing a tangible connection to a larger community of women, Phenomenal has proven to be particularly effective at urgent moments in our society. Along with the original Phenomenal t-shirt, Phenomenal has launched other activism-focused campaigns and products, including #1600men, Phenomenal Voter, Phenomenally Black, Phenomenally Indigenous, and Phenomenally Latina, with plans to continue to grow and expand.

Meena's complementary visions for philanthropy, activism and government not only shared what must be done to restore our economy and address deep racial and economic inequality, but also illustrated how these sectors must work together to make change possible.

Meena was great. Our students gave super positive feedback and she was very engaged and we are really grateful for the opportunity to bring her to campus.
