SHE FACTOR IS POWERING UP GEN Z’S

January 18, 2021

Even during the best of times, young women just beginning to spread their wings need all the encouragement and guidance they can get. But at this moment, when the whole world seems to be in crisis, support and mentoring from other women can be life-changing.

That's why the SHE FACTOR, created by powerhouse Mother/Daughter duo Heidi and Tori Ganahl to give young women the tools and community they need to create a life they love has already reached over one million Gen Z's. With Heidi's track record as the founder of the wildly successful Camp Bow Wow franchise and 24-year-old Tori grappling herself with the challenges young women face, it's no wonder their live/virtual events, training, book, podcast and movement are growing fast.

The Gender Revolution has been called one of "the most profound social changes America has ever experienced."

WNBA Athletes Raise Their Voices & Their Game

WNBA Athletes Raise Their Voices & Their Game

November 9, 2020

Women's basketball, led by the WNBA, powerhouse college programs and star supporters, is building momentum. The athletes are taller, faster, stronger and highly-skilled and the fan base is growing.  Something else is changing, too.  Similar to USA Women's Hockey and the USA Women's' Soccer team, WNBA players are beginning to flex their collective power to address gender inequities and social issues. The WNBA Players Association dedicated their 2020 season to the Black Lives Matter movement, but that was just the beginning of their collective activism in the wake of multiple deaths of African Americans at the hands of police and a presidential battle for the soul of America. Elizabeth Williams of the Atlanta Dream and Natalie Achonwa of the Indiana Fever share what they've learned about leadership, using your power and never settling!

Sarey Ruden: Rebelling Against Male Toxicity on Dating Apps

November 2, 2020

Sarey Ruden, fed up with the vulgar, mean and often threatening responses she has received from men on dating apps, finally had enough. The Detroit-based creative artist used her skill (and sense of humor!) to turn online harassment into compelling art. In the process, she created a growing movement of women rebelling against this new form of toxic sexual harassment. She also discovered that online platforms find women who complain more problematic then misbehaving men! You'll love the "good trouble" this "dating disruptor" is stirring up with her Sarey Tales and Tedx talk.
