About the Unapologetic/MOXIEon Tour.
About “Quit Being So Good.”
When Kristi Hemmer was eight, she was the Connect Four champ; nobody wanted to play with her. When she was twelve, she was on the Future Problem Solvers of America championship team; people told her that if she was too smart, boys wouldn’t like her. When she was eighteen, her professor told her she was too smart to be a teacher. When she was thirty-three and principal of an all-girls school, a city council member told her she was too young. The underlying message is one that every female of every age is told again and again: You’re too much. Quit being you. You don’t belong. Wait your turn. Be quiet. Quit being so good.
“Quit Being So Good” is a collection of fifteen stories from the frontlines of being female. It is a call to action for women to unapologetically be their most powerful selves for the sake of building a safer, more equitable world. The key to being unapologetic (maybe even dismantling the patriarchy itself) is in these three simple steps: 1). take up space, 2). be first, and 3). look for the helpers.
Why do women and girls shrink in a classroom, boardroom, and conversation?
This question made educator Kristi Hemmer, M.Ed. so mad that she quit her six-figure job in Tokyo to answer the question and solve the problem. For four years, she traveled the world on twenty dollars a day learning about social entrepreneurship. In the process, she founded Academy for Women’s Empowerment (AWE).
AWE has inspired thousands of changemakers around the world to disrupt the systems of power and create a safer and more equitable world for women and girls. Kristi Hemmer has a master’s degree in education. She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and everywhere else in the world, for that matter.
