Despite research that indicates women are happier (96 percent), healthier (89 percent) and more successful (97 percent) when they’re themselves, 51 percent still say that they filter who they are every day to succeed in society. In response, T.J.Maxx has launched the next phase of The Maxx You Project — all with the continued mission of encouraging women to embrace their individuality, together.
With 75 percent of women saying that when they see others being true to who they are, they’re inspired to do the same, The Maxx You Project has brought on singer/songwriter, author and mentor Kelly Rowland to join its roster of mentors, with the goal of building a powerful and supportive ‘shecosystem’ of women who encourage one another to be their most authentic selves.
Rowland led the latest in a series of women’s workshops across the country this summer, featuring keynote speakers, networking opportunities, tools and resources, and today kicks offThe Maxx You Project How To, interactive online classes designed by experts to help women overcome the obstacles to embracing their own individuality.
“Throughout my life, I’ve had an incredible support system of women helping me embrace who I am. That’s why I’m so excited to pay forward that same inspiration and mentorship to the women of The Maxx You Project,” Rowland said.
“At T.J.Maxx, we take pride that shoppers experience those ‘that’s so me!’ moments in our stores every day, and want to help them have more of those moments outside of our stores,” said Gina Bollus, Manager of Marketing, T.J.Maxx. “We are so proud of the community and support surrounding The Maxx You Project, and will continue our mission of bringing women together to embrace what makes us each so unique.”
