To celebrate its 10th anniversary the Womanity Foundation brought together a community of friends, partners and potential partners in New York City.

On 15th June, Womanity hosted an evening reception at Le Cirque, East 58th Street, New York to both celebrate 10 years of the foundation and to stimulate a debate with the panel discussion on: ‘Progressing Together: What Men Gain from Women’s Empowerment and Gender Parity.’ The prestigious panel included James Benedict of Women’s Investment Network, Ronald Bruder of Education for Employment, Ambassador Craig Johnstone of Vital Voices, Ben Rodriguez-Cubenas from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and Diana Rowan Rockefeller of Afghan Women Leaders Connect.

The following morning, CNN News Anchor Brooke Baldwin moderated a panel discussion on ‘Engaging Media for Women’s Empowerment’ at Civic Hall, New York. The breakfast debate centered on the power of storytelling, the impact that media can have on the lives and men and women, and the responsibility of the media. The extraordinary panel guests to join our breakfast discussion were Honey Al Sayed, founder of Radio SouriaLi; Kyle Gibson, founder of Women in the World; Yann Borgstedt, founder and president of the Womanity Foundation; and Sabrina Hersi Issa, CEO of Be Bold Media.
