The Best Way to Understand Confidence Is to See It In Action!

Introducing LIVING THE CONFIDENCE CODE, the Highly Anticipated Follow-Up to the Game-Changing, Best-Selling Phenomenon, THE CONFIDENCE CODE FOR GIRLS

Ric Speaks with Authors Katty Kay & Claire Shipman About Their Confidence-Boosting Advice for Young Women and True, Inspiring Success Stories from Young Female Activists, Athletes, and More!

In 2018, the publishing phenomenon The Confidence Code for Girls spent twenty-eight weeks on the New York Times best-seller list. Co-authored by journalists and TV News anchors Katty Kay and Claire Shipman, The Confidence Code for Girls served as a blueprint to help tween-age girls become bold, brave, fearless women. Now, Kay and Shipman have teamed up again for the highly anticipated follow-up Living the Confidence Code.

Living the Confidence Code builds on the skill that The Confidence Code for Girls taught young women everywhere. From anti-bullying advocates to climate change activists, app developers to athletes, and more, the book highlights extraordinary girls who took risks, sometimes doubted themselves, and even failed, but through it all discovered what matters most to them and found the confidence to accomplish their goals. Some of the girls featured in the book include:
Mari Copeny - 13, Flint Water Activist
Thandiwe Abdullah - 16, Co-Founder of Black Lives Matter Youth Vanguard
Gitanjali Rao - 15, Inventor and 2020 TIME Kid of the Year
Sam Gordon – 17, Athlete and activist fighting for gender equality in sports
Aaron Philip – 19, First trans Black disabled model to be signed to a major agency
Haven Shepherd - 17, Paralympic swimmer
These stories empower the next generation of young women to make a difference and leave them with skills and takeaways to apply to their passions.

Katty Kay is a BBC World News America anchor, a frequent contributor on Meet the Press and Morning Joe and a regular NPR guest host. Claire Shipman spent almost three decades as an award-winning television journalist for CNN, NBC and ABC. In addition to writing the NY Times best-sellers Womenomics and The Confidence Code, Kay and Shipman deliver speaking engagements across the country to convey their message of empowerment directly to girls and women everywhere.
