MGM Resorts is celebrating Women’s History Month in a unique way: by turning its iconic Leo the Lion into a lioness.

MGM said it leads gender diversity on the Las Vegas strip, having appointed the first two women presidents of strip resorts and the first female executive chef in the food and beverage industry on the strip.

MGM Resorts was recognized by Forbes as one of the best employers for women in 2018.
