Tina Brown, founder and editor-in-chief of The Daily Beast, has just announced a three-day summit, “Women in the World: Stories and Solutions.”
The event will focus “in depth on powerful human stories about women. We will showcase leaders on the frontlines working on innovative solutions to challenges ranging from sex slavery to girls’ education in the developing world to women caught in the violence of war zones.”
The list of attendees reads like a who’s-who of government, business, philanthropy, the media, and Hollywood: Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan, Madeleine Albright, Christiane Amanpour, Thomas Friedman, Katie Couric, Meryl Streep, Jacqueline Novogratz, and Cherie Blair (to truly name only a few).
Scheduled for March 12 – 14, 2010 at the Hudson Theater in New York, The Daily Beast will cover the event “with live reporting and video highlights from the summit. And through interactive tools here on the site.” Participant profiles will be posted soon.
Flexibility + Initiative + Power = Change … Brilliant.
** A “Women in the World” Summit Update: The Daily Beast has just announced that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “will introduce an ensemble reading of SEVEN, a documentary play that honors courageous women activists from seven countries. The play was created by a collaboration of seven women playwrights, and will feature Meryl Streep, Marcia Gay Harden (Mystic River), Shohreh Aghdashloo (The House of Sand and Fog), Tony-nominated Julyana Soelistyo (Golden Child), Lauren Vélez (Dexter), and Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife).” Read more about Mrs. Clinton’s support for women’s issues and the summit.
