As the face of female empowerment, a college football expert, and having hiked Mt. Everest and surviving 33 days on a deserted island; Growing up in Texas with four older brothers Alexis Jones is an interesting hybrid of femininity, grit, resilience and compassion.

While the topics Alexis has dedicated her life to are now trending, she remains focused on solution based strategies to inspire significant and tangible progress moving us all forward. In Alexis’ own words “we cannot remain stagnant, focused purely on the problem. We have to be brave enough to start discussing radical topics such as patience, forgiveness, redemption and rehabilitation because shame has never been an effective change agent. We will have to find a balance between hard accountability, radical grace and real actionable solutions; only then will we discover a path forward.” In this talk, Alexis will inspire a new company culture, not by pointing fingers, blaming and shaming; but by inspiring a new normal, where all humans are treated with dignity and respect.

This is an empowerment speech on steroids leaving everyone in the audience capable and hungry of chasing down their “impossible.”
ProtectHer: Redefining #Manhood
The hottest topics in news today aren’t highlighting Heisman hopefuls or the latest March Madness rankings; unfortunately headlines are focused primarily on the rampant sexual assault allegations coming out on college campuses and among other industries While there is endless media attention about the problem, few people are discussing tangible solutions as a way forward. In this incredibly important presentation, Alexis Jones starts what becomes an ongoing dialogue, asking young men the simple question, What kind of man will you choose to be? Having worked at ESPN and Fox Sports, Alexis speaks “dude” with exceptional ease. Based on her original talk at NIKE to the top 18 high school quarterbacks in the country for ESPNU’s show Elite 11, Alexis goes much deeper than simply making audiences aware of the issues. Through strategic humor, relatable stories and tangible action steps, Alexis shares how to be brave and vulnerable– highlighting the fact that in order for men to respect women, men first have to respect themselves. She believes that men are not simply the problem when it comes to poor treatment of women, they are actually the cure. Alexis inspires a new possibility of what it means to be a badass guy and leaves every person in the room excited to be the change we so desperately need.
