CALIFORNIA WOMEN'S CONFERENCE
Women of the Future: Leading the Way for 30 Years!
May 10 - 11 2017 - Long Beach California
Alexis Jones hosted a TV show on the red carpet, worked at Fox Sports, ESPN and several others shows on CBS, MTV and TLC. She founded ProtectHer, I AM THAT GIRL (501c3) and has spoken at The White House, The United Nations, Harvard, Stanford, NIKE, Pepsi and DELL.
Alexis founded the non-profit I AM THAT GIRL and wrote a corresponding book to empower girls with the same name. IATG currently has 1M girls involved and has chapters in 52+ countries. After years of traveling globally and speaking to 500K+ girls and women, she transitioned into speaking to boys with her most recent ProtectHer program: created out of an urgency to address the ever-growing issue of domestic abuse and sexual assault on college campuses.
Growing up with four older brothers in Texas — where football is a religion — Alexis was not new to the power of sports and the influence of male athletes on their peers. When asked by ESPN to address the top 18 high-school quarterbacks for Elite 11 on the importance of respecting women, Alexis went much deeper than simply making young men aware of the issues. Through funny, heartfelt stories and tangible action steps; Alexis shared how to be verbal, vulnerable and honest – highlighting the fact that in order for men to respect women, they must first respect themselves.
Shortly after Elite 11 aired, Alexis was hired to speak in high schools and colleges across the country. Some of her most prominent ProtectHer speaking events have been at the University of Florida, UGA, UW, USC, UCLA, University of Texas, TCU, Iowa State, Mizzou, University of Minnesota and University of Tennessee.
Alexis has been featured as one of AOL’s MAKERS along with Oprah, Maya Angelou, Ellen and Sheryl Sandberg. She was highlighted as an Ambassador for L’Oreal’s new STEM initiative, Secret’s “Mean Stinks” anti-bullying campaign, listed as one of DELL’s #Inspire 100 List, Fast Company’s “Female Trailblazers,” ESPN’s “Pop Culture’s Top Ten,” and was recently featured on Oprah’s 2016 Super Soul 100 list.
