LOS ANGELES, March 15, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Today, World Woman Foundation announces the launch of the third edition of World Woman Hour, a powerful series spotlighting female leaders worldwide. World Woman Hour's #BreakTheRole campaign - Break the mold, Be Bold - features women breaking stereotypes, mindsets, records, and expectations to build an inclusive future for all.
On March 31, global leaders from 20+ countries will attend the World Woman Hour screening during the Women's History Month Annual Event hosted by the World Woman Foundation at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. Two hundred delegates will attend the conference and awards from 9 am to 4 pm, followed by the World Woman Hero awards and reception from 5 pm onwards at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.
The campaign highlights a notable group of world-class leaders and their bold ideas for changing the world to educate, empower, and engage future female leaders as groundbreakers, ceiling smashers, and trailblazers. These dynamic women include high-achieving science, health, business, arts, and media—Jessica Watkins, American Astronaut; Marjan Neshat, Iranian American Actress, and Activist; Maggie Freleng, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter; Vivian Tu, Founder, Your Rich BFF; Emma Andrews, Vice President, Global Patient Advocacy, Pfizer; and Maria Weaver, President, WMX at Warner Music Group.
"As crises compound, women's workforce outcomes, economic opportunities, and healthcare needs are suffering, and the risk of global gender parity backsliding and intensifying. At the current rate of progress, it will take 287 years to reach full parity, so World Woman Hour brings women who lead from the frontlines by taking charge of the new future that is about equality, choice, and dignity of women in a bold new way," says Rupa Dash, CEO of the World Woman Foundation.
The hour will inform viewers how women lack access to healthcare, education, justice, and equal pay every hour and its impact on gender inequalities worldwide.
