S.H.E. Summit Week, is a weeklong series of empowering, inspiring events that will help women dream big, personally and professionally. The series of grassroots, pop-up events, designed to inspire and celebrate women, will take place June 18-24 in New York City. The inaugural summit will include more than 25 events hosted by woman-run organizations and their inspiring leaders, creating a week of learning, networking, motivation and fun for New York’s professional women.
Standing for “She Helps Empower,” S.H.E. Summit Week was founded by ClaudiaChan.com, a for-purpose women’s lifestyle media brand that showcases exclusive interviews with some of today’s most remarkable female leaders, including Alexandra Wilkis Wilson, co-founder & chief marketing officer of Gilt Groupe; Christy Turlington Burns, founder of Every Mother Counts; and Jennifer Buffet, president and co-chair of the NoVo Foundation.
S.H.E. Summit Week will bring to life the inspirational stories and life lessons found on the pages of ClaudiaChan.com by providing opportunities for everyday women to surround themselves with others who are already living their dreams. Whether participating in an invigorating yoga class at Elena Brower’s Virayoga or attending a session with Catchafire Founder Rachael Chong to learn about starting a company dedicated to social good, attendees will gain motivational program content that helps them consider and work toward their goals. S.H.E. Summit Week is a chance to take a break from the constant stress of New York Citylife to rest, revive and refocus in the company of other confident women. Personally, I am looking forward to The Ultimate Beauty & Balance Night: Makeovers, Makeup Lessons & Massages and Learn a South African Jewelry Making Tradition & How It’s Empowering Women Out of Poverty. All of these activities send a positive message of empowerment to do something with likeminded women, for yourself.
“Many women today are not living their dreams and some don’t even allow themselves to dream,” said Claudia Chan, founder of ClaudiaChan.com and S.H.E. Summit Week. “S.H.E. Summit Week is an opportunity for everyday women to meet women I call ‘starters,’ who have taken the leap to pursue their passions. Learning from these women while surrounded by likeminded professionals will help attendees draw personal and professional inspiration and develop the confidence they need to work toward their own dreams.”
Events during S.H.E. Summit Week will cover topics in work, life and everything in between — including entrepreneurship panels, style and beauty events, yoga classes, art and charity events, film screenings and relationship coaching. Women may attend as many sessions as they choose with an all-access pass to S.H.E. Summit Week, available for $59 ($79 after June 1). In conjunction with S.H.E. Summit Week, Agapi Stassinopoulos, Claudia Chan and Zainab Salbi will host a VIP cocktail and networking party, Remarkable Women’s Evening, on Thursday, June 21. Many of the impressive women featured on ClaudiaChan.com, including Hanky Panky’s Lida Orzeck, Physique 57′s Tanya Becker, Count Me In‘s Nell Merlino and Golden Seed‘s Stephanie Newby, will attend.
