English-born advocate, actor, radio presenter and writer Jameela Jamil is renowned for her starring role in The Good Place, but it is her outspoken crusade for body positivity that has attracted millions of fans – and her wicked wit.
Jameela – who calls herself a ‘feminist in progress’ – hosts the I Weigh podcast (and YouTube Channel) in which she challenges society’s definition of worth through weight. In each episode, she asks different thought-leaders about how they are working through their past shames to find where their value truly lies. Through these hilarious and vulnerable conversations, Jameela amplifies and empowers diverse voices in an accessible way to celebrate progress, not perfection.
In this exclusive live appearance via video link from the United States, Jameela speaks out with fellow trailblazer Jamila Rizvi about the importance of a healthy self-image that goes ‘beyond flesh and bones’, the need for greater representation of diversity on stage and screens, and tackling the conforming nature of social media.
Jamila Rizvi is an author, presenter and political commentator. She is Chief Creative Officer for the Nine Network’s Future Women and her best-selling book, Not Just Lucky, is a career manifesto for millennial women. Prior to entering the media, Jamila worked in politics advising on issues including childcare, media and employment. For this year’s Game Changers series, you’ll hear from provocateurs who are using their platform for good, shaking up the norm and having a bit of fun in the process. Join us for what will no doubt be a lively, thoughtful and entertaining conversation between these two powerhouses with plenty of time for questions.
