In this session...
Edwina Dunn, data science entrepreneur and Founder of The Female Lead will be sharing her ground-breaking research which explores the impact of social media on mental health. The charity have studied a diverse group of young girls and their social media consumption in depth. Through speaking to them, the team discovered powerful and innovative ways of improving ‘Social Media Health’.
The research came out of global concern around the effect of the digital world on people’s wellbeing, especially girls. Current social media guidance focuses on safety and time limits, but very little on how to make the experience more enriching. Dunn wanted to know: can social media become an inspirational force?
This project has reached over 18,000 schools and has an active engagement from over 20 million people.
