Yesterday, June 14th, 2016, The White House held an inaugural ‘United State of Women’ Summit to place the attention on women and girls, domestically and internationally. The summit featured speakers who educated and inspired women, including our very own Ladybrille Woman of the Month April 2015 Alum, Luvvie Ajayi.
Speakers and panelists covered key gender equality issues including discussions on economic empowerment, health and wellness, educational opportunity, violence against women, entrepreneurship and innovation and leadership and civic engagement.
Watch First Lady Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey’s discussion on the next generation of women where Michelle talks about knowing who you are, and knowing your value.
