Parents and educators are looking for resources and strategies to better support, educate and encourage the girls in their lives. As the world becomes increasingly complex, the impact of technology and social media on girls’ perceptions, relationships, beliefs, and aspirations warrants specific attention.
Dr. Hinkelman will share her original research from the first-of-its-kind, groundbreaking nationwide survey of
nearly 11,000 girls — The Girls’ Index: New Insights Into the Complex World of Today’s Girls — unveiling
compelling data on the topics and issues girls face and will provide insights and strategies for adults who are
working to help girls effectively traverse their digital environments.
Lisa Hinkelman is a nationally recognized researcher, speaker and author who is a foremost authority on educating and
empowering girls and creating environments that foster girls’ confidence, self-esteem and successful decision-making.
She has spent more than ten years researching girls and educating adults both as a professor at The Ohio State
University and as the Founder and CEO of the national non-profit Ruling Our eXperiences (ROX), an organization that delivers evidence-based programming, research, education and training focused on the critical issues impacting girls.
Lisa grew up in Pittsburgh and is a graduate of Chatham College. She is the author of the award-winning book, ’Girls Without Limits: Helping Girls Achieve Healthy Relationships Academic Success and Interpersonal Strength’, Corwin Press, 2013. She works with schools, corporations, associations and organizations across the country to address the social, emotional, educational, safety and leadership issues impacting girls.
