Self Esteem Project

By  |  0 Comments

About 10,000 people a month Google the phrase, “Am I ugly?” Meaghan Ramsey of the Dove Self-Esteem Project has a feeling that many of them are young girls. In a deeply unsettling talk, she walks us through the surprising impacts of low body and image confidence—from lower grade point averages to greater risk-taking with drugs and alcohol. And then shares the key things all of us can do to disrupt this reality.

The Global Director of the Dove Self-Esteem Project, Meaghan Ramsey believes in business growth that stems from real social change. Meaghan Ramsey gets giddy watching her 1-year-old niece admire herself in the mirror. Because she knows that, for too many girls, this admiration stops as they move into adolescence and self-doubt about their appearance creeps in. As the Global Director of the Dove Self-Esteem Project at Unilever, Ramsey and her colleagues aim to improve the self-esteem of more than 15 million girls and young women by 2015. She is a strong ambassador for helping girls and women develop resilience in the face of a culture that assaults with unattainable images of beauty and thinness. Both a brand developer and strategist, Ramsey has long worked to fuel business growth spurred on by social change. Prior to the Dove Self-Esteem Project, she worked with the World Heart Federation and the Dietitians Association of Australia.
