Dove #SpeakBeautiful Workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Dove Self-Esteem Educators, Rosie Molinary and Dania Peguero, will lead an inspiring workshop for 50 girls from the local Boys & Girls Club in Long Beach, CA. 

The workshop ties to the Dove #SpeakBeautiful campaign that encourages women and girls to realize the role our online words play in impacting our confidence and self-esteem. Dove research shows 8 out of 10 women encounter negative comments on social media that critique women’s looks. Furthermore, women do not realize messages they post are contributing to negative mindsets and behavior about beauty online. Only 9% of women admit to posting negative comments on social media.

 

How can we help the next generation ignite positive change online? Dove invites #WeAllGrow attendees to join our workshop – to serve as mentors and to interact with girls from our partner organization. To date, Dove has reached 17 million girls globally. We look forward to working with you to impact more lives in our local communities.”
