Kudos to the Milken Institute for putting on an amazing Global Summit this year. Yes, they do a great job every year, but this year was special. They chose to place an emphasis on girls and women, both in their programming and in their attendance. 30% of the attendees were women this year, a significant increase from prior years. Day 2 of the conference was particularly impactful as the lunch program (which everyone attends) was a 2 hour program that featured Patricia Arquette speaking about pay equality, Frida Pinto discussing how to help advance young women in India, and Willow Bay moderating a panel called “What Would You Do to Make the World Better for Women and Girls? A Conversation and Call to Action”.
I was honored to be on a panel alongside a handful of powerhouse women called “Women Challenging the Status Quo.” Check out the video below:
