Happy International Women's Day! With the importance of this day on our minds, we read BizBash's "Oscars 2018: What You Missed at the Week's Most Stylish Bashes" with a different perspective. From returning events to new partnerships, Oscar weekend was full of beautiful, supportive and inspiring events. Seeing an uptick in events with strong women (and men) coming together to support one another is inspiring (to say the least) and a reminder to keep up this momentum!
One such returning event was the Women in Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party, who celebrated its 11th soiree with a room full of female Hollywood power-players. If attendees were looking for more inspiration, an off-the-cuff speech by Viola Davis reminded women "the privilege of a lifetime is being exactly who you are." Excuse us while we make that our new mantra!
Joining the list of powerful events held during the Oscars, Janelle Monáe hosted her own brunch with Belvedere Vodka to celebrate her organization Fem the Future. Powerful discussion about harnessing frustration into action took place around long farm tables surrounded by greenery (see below).
Celebrating inclusion and diversity is important in every industry, every day. On International Women's Day, let's all take some time to celebrate the strong women in our lives!
The Future is Female!
