the launch of her new company, Ba’Boom. The company will serve baby boomers, starting with women, to convene in small settings to engage in conversations about life, personal growth and aging.
Ba’Boom’s launch event, Gathering of Gals with Grace + Wisdom+ Wit, will bring together 200 women at the Revere Hotel in Boston on January 17, 2014.
Having spent her career as an advocate for emerging causes and the head of development for national organizations including the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, UC San Diego Health Sciences and Dublin City University, Meill explains, “my intention with Ba’Boom Gatherings is to trigger change - so each of us can open up to more possibilities and begin to set paths that may be different than in past. This brings in reviewing our passions, fears, beliefs, and finding ways to emerge anew.”
According to Nielsen’s Boomers—The Most Valuable Generation report, there are 80 million baby boomers in the United States, making up 44% of the adult population. The swelling wave of boomers (the majority being women) has yet to crest, with many of them expected to live 10-25 years longer then their parents notes an article in The Money Update.
“As a woman baby boomer, I often found myself having conversations with other women about what’s next in life as we continue to grow as we age,” said Meill, founder and curator of Ba’Boom. “These conversations were the impetus for Ba’Boom Gatherings. I wanted to provide a platform to bring women together to engage in topics that pique curiosity.”
