Experience technology platform for the wellness industry Mindbody announced that American supermodel, designer, author, and body activist, Ashley Graham, will headline BOLD 2022, the Mindbody Conference. The event will be held on September 12-14 in Los Angeles, California bringing together business owners, enthusiasts, and entrepreneurs from across the wellness industry for educational sessions and unique experiences.
“Ashley Graham is the definition of a trailblazer, redefining years of traditional beauty standards and empowering millions everywhere to embrace themselves as they are, mind, body, and soul,” said Josh McCarter, CEO of Mindbody. “We are honored to have Ashley join us at BOLD 2022 to share with our customers her experiences as a leader, entrepreneur, and all she has had to overcome to get where she is today.”
During her session, Graham will sit down for a moderated conversation to speak about her journey in the public eye touching on everything from body image, self-acceptance, and female empowerment. A business-savvy entrepreneur, Graham has been honored on Forbes’ coveted “30 Under 30”, Glamour’s “Woman of the Year” and Time’s “100 Most Influential People in the World”, and has co-founded ALDA, a collective of models that represents beauty beyond size and challenges conventional notions within the fashion industry.
“I’m honored to have the opportunity to speak at BOLD 2022, the Mindbody Conference, and to be in such great company," said Graham. "It’s important that we share our stories of success and struggle with each other to help uplift and inspire others. I’m so passionate about breaking out of the norms in fashion, beauty and what it means to be a woman, and I can’t wait to share my journey with everyone.”
