In recognition and celebration of Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, Forbes announced “Voicing Power,” a virtual event hosted on March 9th by Moira Forbes, Executive Vice President, Forbes and Diane von Furstenberg, fashion designer, philanthropist and author.

·          Part of the Forbes “Power Women” conversation series, which is dedicated to advancing equity, the gathering will feature inspiring insights from von Furstenberg’s new book, “Own It: The Secret to Life.”

·      The three-part discussion will also explore how to accelerate opportunities for women across generations with featured speakers including:

o  Tiffany Dufu, Founder & CEO, The Cru    

o  Francine Katsoudas, Executive Vice President & Chief People Officer, Cisco 

o  Ann Miura-Ko, Co-founding Partner, Floodgate and #96 on the 2020 Forbes Midas List

o   Cleo Wade, Bestselling Author, Poet & Activist

·          “At a time when an exchange of ideas is more critical than ever in our push for progress,” says Moira Forbes, “we’re excited to celebrate Women’s History Month by amplifying a powerful community of changemakers who offer a blueprint for activating our own power to shape a more equitable future.”

·          “Words have power. We must use them carefully. They create energy, define us, impact our lives and the paths we take. As I was in the midst of writing, the COVID-19 pandemic happened, and with it, home confinement and a new reality” said Diane von Furstenberg. “All of a sudden, every word, every sentence took on a whole other dimension, and everything became deeper, more meaningful. Like everyone else, confinement forced me to pause and made me re-evaluate who I was and what mattered most. Whether personally or in my business, I had to confront what was not right anymore and accept what had to change. I had to face all the difficulties I was encountering and own them.”
