About @Meagan

Based in Paris, France, Meagan Adele Lopez is what someone once called her an “omni-channel creative” who is passionate about creating in a multitude of forms – writing, filmmaking, directing, photography, theatre, spoken word.

She attended acclaimed high school Baltimore School for the Arts, then University of Southern California as a National Hispanic and Dean’s Scholar. She worked in casting for films such as Juno, the Day the Earth Stood Still and television series Numb3rs and Medium. She has written a novel, a play and several films.

One of her life’s missions is female empowerment. She was chair and founded the New York Times’ international Women’s Network, was one of the faces of Google’s #IamRemarkable Campaign and serves as Vice-Chair for Democrats Abroad in Paris as well as works on the Women’s Caucus.

She recently left advertising as the New York Times’ Global Digital Business Director in December 2018 to pursue filmmaking full time.

She also co-founded one of the first social media marketing agencies back in 2010 in startup in Chicago called SocialKaty.

Meagan Adele Lopez moved 12 times by the time she was 12 through 6 different schools and four states. As an adult, she has had to navigate 7 cross-country moves back and forth between America to London, England and Paris, France where she now resides.

She is one who believes that life is short, and to box yourself into one image is to narrow your view of the world.

Digital Media

For over a decade, Lopez has worked in digital media – from entrepreneur to corporations. She left the global digital advertising strategy and operations team for the New York Times in December 2018 to work on her first passion – filmmaking. 

She started the Digital Lab Series, a monthly learning series for the New York Times, where she invited speakers from startups, corporations and digital advertising agencies to speak about what they were doing in the digital advertising space. It was an informal, hour long session where people from all international sales offices — Dubai, Hong Kong, Paris, Tokyo, Singapore and London — congregated for a dosage of digital from the outside world.

She began her career in startups, co-founding prominent social media marketing agency, SocialKaty, in Chicago and overseeing social media marketing for the United States’ largest tech conference, TechWeek. She moved on to help start VivaKi’s social media buying arm in Chicago and then to oversee brand relations at VivaKi in London.

Women’s Empowerment

“Every girl must decide whether to be true to herself or true to the world.”

 —Glennon Doyle Melton

If women are empowered, the world becomes a greater place, but it isn’t just about bringing our strengths, it’s about celebrating our vulnerability. 

Beyond choosing interesting female roles in acting, writing about women’s issues and becoming active in championing for women in the workplace, Lopez is passionate about helping women as a friend, mentor and advocate.

She is a mentor with the American Chamber of Commerce in France on the Women’s Committee. She started the international arm of the Women’s Network with the New York Times, and remained as the Chair for three years. She was a facilitator and face for Google’s #IamRemarkable program, that strives to empower women and underrepresented groups to speak openly about their accomplishments.

Speaking

She also speaks regularly at events around the world – including ACT-W’s Chick Tech conference in Phoenix, AZ.

I just finished the book…and it was beautiful. Thank you.
