Activist, actor, host and founder of I Weigh Jameela Jamil will join WrapWomen’s 2020 Power Women Summit, the largest annual gathering of women in media and entertainment. With the theme “Inclusion 360,” the event will take place virtually December 8-10.
Jamil will discuss how she is using her I Weigh platform to celebrate progress, not perfection, in conversation with Dr. Deepika Chopra. Instead of giving into cancel culture, I Weigh is a radically inclusive community built to share ideas and stories that teach and mobilize activism. During this session, attendees will learn how to find value from within while making meaningful change both in their own communities and globally.
Jameela Jamil rose to fame as ‘Tahani’ in the Golden Globe-nominated series “The Good Place” and is currently the host of the TBS game show “The Misery Index.” In addition to her on-screen career, Jamil launched the movement and activism platform I Weigh. What started as an idea and an Instagram page became an online platform, YouTube channel and community of change makers who come together to share ideas, experiences and ultimately mobilize activism.
In April 2020 the “I Weigh with Jameela Jamil” podcast launched, in which Jamil speaks to different thought-leaders, performers, activists, influencers, and friends – including Gloria Steinem, Reese Witherspoon and Demi Lovato – about how they are working through their past shame to find where their value truly lies.
Dr. Deepika Chopra is an optimism doctor, professional psychologist, mental health advocate, founder of Things Are Looking Up and host of the Dear Media podcast, “Looking Up with Dr. Deepika Chopra.” Chopra is working toward redefining the popular yet impossible notion of “being positive all the time,” exposing toxic positivity and advocating for resiliency over perfection.
