What started in a locker room...
After working in girl/ women's empowerment for over a decade, Alexis was asked to give a talk to the top eighteen quarterbacks in the country on the "importance of respecting women." When it aired on ESPNU it went viral and a week later everything with Ray Rice came out and suddenly she was That Girl giving tough love talks to male athletes. Overnight she was hired by Division One locker rooms all over the country and ProtectHer was born; an initiative that invites, inspires and educates guys on how they are not simply the "problem" when it comes to violence against women, but they are also the cure.
Became a movement
After spending years speaking to athletes across the country (Alabama, University of Texas, USC, UCLA, Berkeley, UGA, West Point, The Naval Academy) the #MeToo movement exploded and Alexis was hired by Fortunate 100 companies (Google, Facebook, NIKE, NETFLIX, DELL, Pepsi) and invited to speak on international stages and private backrooms with Hollywood elite, top military commanders, powerful politicians, C-suite executives, renowned thought leaders and passionate activist to tackle the issues of power dynamics, societal inequalities, radical inclusivity and more than anything, tangible solutions moving forward.
With over 1M+views, Alexis' fifteen minute TEDx talk (below) also went viral. Compelled to do more and with the help of a dream team, the ProtectHer documentary (currently on Amazon Prime) and a four part, digital education program was created as a tool to engage, inspire and educate people on the issue of sexual assault prevention while also celebrating all the incredible young men doing it RIGHT.
We encourage you to download the documentary and host your own viewing party!
"This isn't a women's issue, it's a human issue and we've never needed great men as much as we do right now." - Alexis
