SEPTEMBER 26, 2018

A Global Conversation


As part of our tenth anniversary celebration, Moxie Mavericks is partnering in the fifth annual Character Day on September 26, 2018. Last year there were over 133,000 Character Day events in 150 countries and all 50 states.


Character Day is a global initiative in which school districts, individual classrooms, companies, organizations, and families -- groups of all sizes -- screen films on the science of character development from different perspectives, dive into discussion materials catered to different ages, and join an online global Q&A conversation featuring prominent leaders discussing the importance of developing character strengths (resilience, grit, empathy, courage, kindness)--all rooted in evidence-based research.

Engage Your Character, Part 1:

Take the Strength Spotter Pledge


Seeing the best in ourselves and each other is shown to be crucial for a thriving life. It leads us to expression, connection, appreciation, and progress. Moxie Mavericks is asking you to join in a commitment to practice seeing the best in others. 


It might sound strange and feel awkward, so here is a little Strength Spotting 101:


  • Watch The Science of Character film by Let It Ripple

  • Watch the how-to video Strength Spotting by Moxie Mavericks

  • Read the list of Character Strengths by VIA Institute

  • Pledge to be a Strength Spotter on Character Day, September 26, 2018


(Pledge poll here and on home page)

Engage Your Character, Part 2:

Following Character Day, we will invite you to share a story about your strength spotting experience with the Moxie Mavericks community.
