 Courtney Macavinta Biography

Courtney Macavinta is co-founder and president of The Respect Institute. She is an award-winning author, speaker, coach, and web publisher who has reached millions of youth, families, and communities through programs such as the Respect Rally, her blog RespectRx.com, and her best-selling book, RESPECT, which won both IPPY and iParenting Awards.

Throughout her tumultuous youth in San Jose, California, Macavinta dealt with many of the same issues teens face today, from self-doubt and negative body image to risky choices, bullying, potentially dropping out of high-school, and confusion about her multiracial identity - she's of Mexican, Filipino, Portuguese, French, and Irish descent. Her hard-working family also struggled for respect amid substance abuse, incarceration, violence, poverty, and racism. Like many, she fought to find respect without a compass or clue - then discovered it was within all along. Today that is her message to people everywhere: respect is always within reach because true respect starts on the inside.

Macavinta has been featured on CNN, ABC, Fox, National Public Radio, MSNBC, and in USA Today, CosmoGIRL!, Teen People, Teen Vogue, Mothering, Glamour, The Seattle Times, The San Jose Mercury News, and numerous other media. She has also been featured as a role model in the books The Quarterlifer's Companion and Cool Women, Hot Jobs. Having been in online media since 1995, Macavinta formerly was editorial director of the groundbreaking and Webby-nominated online and radio network ChickClick. Additionally, her articles have been published by The Washington Post, The Huffington Post, The Associated Press, The Sacramento Bee, CBS News.com, and others.

She has spoken, trained, or led event programs for thousands of youth, adults, and organizations across the country, coaching them to use The Respect Basics to end cycles of disrespect and to thrive.

Youth learn to lead social change to spread respect for the entire community.

  • Disrespect Dilemmas: How to Deal

    Do your so-called friends or others bully you? Do you struggle with saying "no" or standing up for what you believe in? Have you been on the bad end of a rumor? Have you ever been in a major fight with a siblings or your parents? We all go through these dilemmas. So what makes a relationship respectful? In this workshop, middle and high school students learn how to use the Respect Basics to make sure respect is a basic in all your relationships: family, friends, and with boyfriends/girlfriends.

Create an action plan to get what you want – and the self-respect to go with it.

  • Body Respect Basics

    A big part of self-respect is respecting your body too. We bring to light the forces that can often make a girl disconnect and disrespect from her body or hate her body (and the person who lives there). With eye-opening discussion, girls will walk away with the ability to make healthier choices, and more importantly, how to respect themselves. (Also a great mother-daughter topic.)

  • Girl Drama: Get the (Respect) Rx

    It's time for a respect revolution – no overthrow necessary! We look at the roots of issues like name-calling, rumors, and sexual harassment so that girls know how to deal in the face of disrespect. Girls also get the tools to rise above drama and transform foes into friends – and most importantly, become their own best friends.
