Bold Media Announces Plus Size Women’s Weekend and Panel

First Ever Event Geared Towards Underserved 67% of American Women Takes Place in February 2019

New York City, New York— November 13, 2018, Bold Media, Inc. — Today, Bold Media and Bold Magazine Announced their plan to help the underserved break an additional glass ceiling. There has never been an event dedicated exclusively to the networking of women in the plus size, size acceptance, and body positive industries…until now. The “Love Yourself” Plus Women’s Weekend includes a plus positive speed networking cocktail party, Saturday morning brunch with a body positive panel (Panelists include Jen Ponton of AMC’s Dietland, Renee Cafaro of SLiNK Magazine, and Janelle Meyer of Elaraluna Boutique), multiple brainstorming breakouts, mentorship matchmaker happy hour, and a Winter Wrap Up aferparty. Special Guest body advocate Sarah Sapora will also be serving up a “Wellness at Work” Stretching hour.

“This isn’t a plus problem, and it isn’t a women’s problem. It’s an ‘everyone’ problem. Maybe it makes some folks uncomfortable to talk about. But, plus women need to unite, network, and rise.” – Bold Media Inc. CEO Dr. Christopher Salute, MBA PhD

Advocacy Plus Activism

Bold Magazine (Bold Zine for short), the flagship property of Bold Media, Inc., began nearly 8 years ago and has been writing about women’s sports, business, media, and fashion since its inception. It switched solely to plus size news in 2014. CEO Christopher Salute took the leap as a straight, white, cisgender, male in a very diverse space, which was not without challenges. In 2018, Salute has presented all over the country and worked with some of the nations leading plus activists.

“While many events limit themselves to cultivating confidence on the dance floor,” says Sarah Sapora, Body Acceptance Advocate, “the ‘Love Yourself Weekend’ aims to inspire and elevate attendees’ professional power. I’m excited to be apart of an event that empowers women in such an authentic way, personally and professionally.”
