Our goal at Limeade is to transform work into a source of positivity, energy, humanity and purpose. One of the many ways we show a commitment to infusing care into our inclusive, employee-first culture is creating employee resource groups (ERGs) to support our people.
Limeade Womxn advocates for empowering employees in work and life — regardless of gender identity — and actively engages women in our company’s present and future. The members of Limeade Womxn strive to normalize equity, equality and whole-person care at work by celebrating and cultivating diversity, inclusion and belonging. In addition to upholding the core Limeade values, Limeade Womxn aims to:
Connect LimeMates of all gender identities to a vast network of support for professional and personal development
Explore key social, political and economic themes and how they impact a variety of individuals and groups in the workplace
Improve the Limeade culture by challenging all LimeMates and the company itself to firmly subscribe to the belief that Anything Is Possible

Whether it’s a symbol of allyship, a mantra for celebrating internal beauty or an anthem for boldly standing up to patriarchal norms in the name of feminism and human rights, the songs selected for the Limeade Womxn Playlist on Spotify amplify care and leadership among women and allies of all gender identities at Limeade.
Here’s what some of the Limeade Womxn members have to say about the songs that empower them to thrive at work and beyond:
Your Woman By White Town
“It’s symbolic of allyship: It’s a male artist singing from a woman’s perspective on breaking up with a toxic man. The irony is that the song’s trumpet riff samples a misogynistic song from 1932. I enjoy all art that pushes boundaries and challenges the patriarchal hegemony. This song relates to Limeade Womxn because allyship is a critical part of our mission as an ERG.”
“This song gives me hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel for marginalized communities, including women who have always had to endure and work so much harder in our patriarchal society.”
– Sherstin Lauman, Engineering Team Lead, favorite Limeade value: Be the Change
Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You) By Kelly Clarkson
“This song is a big reminder that “you can do it,” and that anything is possible. Things will come your way, but you can handle it. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger! There is an internal strength in all of us and the Limeade Womxn ERG is about uplifting women and reminding them that they have something important to offer. This song applies to your personal life, business, and any time you are feeling defeated.”
– Theresa Corrigan, Strategic Account Executive, favorite Limeade value: Own It
Doo Wop (That Thing) By Lauryn Hill
“I love this song and how it makes me instantly in a better mood! Its positivity and carefree vibe remind me of the ‘Anything is Possible’ value because when you are uplifted, you feel invincible!”
– Taylor Blessing, Product Marketing Manager, favorite Limeade value: Be the Change
Pink Blood By Hikaru Utada
“It’s about knowing your self-worth and choosing to take care of yourself.”
– Anne Houghton, IT Security Business Analyst, favorite Limeade value: We’re a Team
Worry With You By Sleater-Kinney
“It’s a great song because it’s about allyship and feminism! They are a riot grrrl band so they are against the patriarchy and for women and marginalized folks’ rights as human rights.”
