ROX Draws a crowd at sxsw EDU

The ROX team connected with the thousands of educators, professionals and business leaders that attended SXSWedu last week in Austin, TX. The week kicked off with a coveted solo speaker session by ROX Founder/Executive Director, Dr. Lisa Hinkelman, entitled "Selfies, Sexts & Self-Esteem: Girls & Social Media." It was clear that educators from across the country were desperately seeking resources to address this topic, evidenced by the 200-300 conference attendees waiting in line to access one of the 60 available seats. 

The excitement continued with an official book signing, recognizing Lisa's work in Girls Without Limits: Helping Girls Achieve Healthy Relationships, Academic Success & Interpersonal Strength and engagement opportunities with ROX experts in the Learning Expo. Later in the week, the ROX team had the opportunity to connect with administrative leaders from the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders, Bertha Sadler Means Young Women's Leadership Academy and Girlstart. 

A huge thank you to Sean Cavanagh who published a feature in Education Week about The Girls' Index and the ROX impact at SXSWedu 2018!
