Here’s the deal… I have always been surrounded by powerful women: my wife, daughters, mom and sis; resilient women/girls who experience diminishment and survive victimization; and relentless women advocates and leaders. iEmpathize was privileged to participate in Newsweek’s Women in the World Summit which honored some of the world’s most amazing women and leaders. The summit was held in NYC at the Lincoln Center where Newsweek integrated our media into their Mexico and Central America feature. We were joined by our Mexico partner, Congresswoman and soon to be Senator, Rosi Orozco, who told of her fight against trafficking in her country. Also, one of the trafficking survivors who we support in Mexico bravely shared her story along with many other survivors of crimes against women from around the globe. Julie and I enjoyed time with our friend and international advocate for women Beth Klein of Boulder. Also in attendance, were Madeleine Albright, Hillary Clinton, Angelina Jolie, and many more women leaders changing our world.
“iEmpathize’s impactful and moving media was incorporated into the Women in the World Summit’s video introduction for a segment on the perils facing women and girls in Mexico and Central America. The brilliant and original footage informed, engaged and inspired our audience. We are so grateful for the partnership with iEmpathize and hope we can work together on women’s issues in the future.” Alyse Walsh Producer, Newsweek/Daily Beast
As a man, I am proud to be a part of the movement. Yep, I might be a sap.
