My Social Canvas is pleased to launch our new design, Confidence is Beautiful, created for The Female Quotient by Elizabeth French, a student at Chapman University!
Elizabeth is incredibly talented in all areas of art, photography, and design. When asked about her work at MSC and her inspiration for the design, Elizabeth told us,
“My design was created to reflect boldness and elegance, while still having a touch of chic. I wanted the design to reflect that confidence doesn't have to be overpowering or demeaning, but it is also sweet and playful. I love MSC because they have given me the opportunity to design with purpose and to work on projects that I believe in. I got involved with MSC by being a campus rep at Chapman University, and also from a close friend who has worked on many MSC projects.”
We love the poised yet fun design Elizabeth created, and we especially love the meaning behind the design. MSC believes that when you are confident in yourself and follow your passions wholeheartedly, you are the most beautiful version of yourself! So, we want this collection to inspire this in others, because confidence is beautiful, and confident women empower other women. We have already seen some incredible women sporting the tees and spreading the message!
The Confidence is Beautiful collection is being sold through The Female Quotient, a company founded by Shelley Zalis in 2013.
The Female Quotient (TFQ) STORY:
TFQ went from a moment to a movement. The Girls’ Lounge was born after founder Shelley Zalis experienced the power of the pack in 2013. Zalis invited some girlfriends to join her at the male-dominated Consumer Electronics Show, and told them to invite their friends.
About 50 women ended up walking the floor together. It was a “heartbeat moment” where the minority felt like the majority.
What started as an informal female gathering has turned into a movement that emphasizes collaboration and mentorship to activate real change.
In addition to the Girls’ Lounge, The Female Quotient also offers research and strategy solutions for forward-thinking corporations to give companies and leaders the tools they need to design the culture they want.
TFQ's mission is to advance gender equality in the workplace. When you put women in any equation, the equation gets better.
