DC Event: Global Leadership Vital Voices Awards

Friday, April 8, 2011

Typing this, I'm so incredibly excited for the opportunity to attend this year's Vital Voices Global Leadership Awards, honoring women in various fields fighting for human rights, civil liberties, and working to strengthen the impact of women throughout the world. As part of my job, I've been invited to attend and see some really phenomenal speakers including Academy Award winner and Vital Voices board member Sally Field, fashion designer extraordinaire Diane von Furstenberg, Rosario Dawson, The Daily Beast founder and EIC Tina Brown, managing director of the World Bank Ngozi-Okonjo-Iweala, NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams, and so many more.

But the real pleasure will be in hearing from some truly fearless women who are the honorees at this year's event. Read their profiles here, and if you're a student, look to attend. They have a great ticket price for students. Events happen all day long and culminate with an awards gala and dinner.
