S.H.E. Summit Week, a series of grassroots, pop-up events designed to inspire and celebrate women, took place June 18-24 in New York City. Short for “She Helps Empower,” S.H.E. Summit Week was founded by Claudia Chan, 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.
Over 35 women-led events took place throughout NYC and focused on topics such as entrepreneurship, wellness, beauty and professional networking.
“I believe that taking good care of our bodies is about much more than staying in shape; it’s about giving ourselves the strength we need to pursue goals in every part of life,” said Chan.
I had the opportunity to attend some of the S.H.E Summit Week events and was blown away. The number of women coming together to support each other, learn and be a part of the week was incredible. Events such as the Inspiring Women’s Evening of Cocktails and Conversation (held at 82 Mercer), Speak Powerfully, Sell More and The Ultimate Beauty & Balance Night all focused on the four “E’s”: Enhance, Empower, Enrich, and Enjoy.
I was impressed with not only the organization of the events, but also the professionalism of the teams. I look forward to next year and can’t wait how they are going to top it!
