Her book, The Inspirational Woman Project, compiles 99 interviews with women of all ages from around the world about what it means to be a woman and how women inspire the world around them. The 100th interview is blank because whomever owns the book (or receives it as a gift!) gets to be that 100th inspirational woman.

Caitlyn Crosby

Caitlyn Crosby | The Giving Keys

After a stay at a New York hotel, actress and singer/songwriter, Caitlin Crosby, started wearing the hotel key as a necklace while on tour. She had the idea to start engraving old, used keys with inspirational words. “I realized that, in a way, we are all like these keys – unique, flawed, scarred, and sometimes discarded by others,” she explains. Crosby wanted these keys to have their purpose renewed over and over again. On a rainy day walking on Hollywood Boulevard, she saw a couple named Rob and Cera sitting under an umbrella holding a sign that read “Ugly, Broke & Hungry.” She invited them to dinner and serendipitously discovered that Cera made jewelry. The couple joined her team and started making Giving Keys the very next day. Now, Crosby’s Giving Keys partners with several non-profit organizations that cater to individuals affected by homelessness.

Courtney Macavinta

Courtney Macavinta | The Respect Institute
Courtney Macavinta, founder of The Respect Institute (TRI), is on a mission to make respect the status quo. TRI gives youth and their influencers the tools to redefine respect and build self-respect so they can break cycles of bullying, violence, abuse, inequality, poverty, poor health, unhealthy relationships, inadequate education, and early death. “When your self-respect is your engine, you can go anywhere in life,” says Macavinta.
