TheWrap’s Power Women Summit is the largest gathering ever assembled of the most influential women in entertainment, media, and technology. The Summit aims to inspire and empower more than 1,000 women across the landscape of their professional careers and personal lives. This year, the summit was held at the beautiful Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica with the backdrop of the beach and the hotel’s iconic fig tree.
Mira Sorvino and Lili Bernard spoke about the #metoomovement and the power it allowed women to step out of the shadow of abuse to tell their stories.
Along with Mira and Lili, the R Kelly survivors also shared their stories and struggles to survive the aftermath.
Presented by WrapWomen Foundation, the non-profit arm of TheWrap, the event provided two days of education, mentorship, workshops, and networking to promote the goal of greater women’s leadership in this industry, and gender balance in media, entertainment, and technology overall.
WrapWomen represents a significant media platform to celebrate positive examples of individuals and companies that are paving the road to greater inclusivity. It is also a launchpad and catalyst for concrete measures to help the media and entertainment industry move toward gender equity across the board.
The Summit is actively committed to integrating intersectionality in its programming and to embracing diversity in all possible categories. There were practical training sessions in leadership and live mentoring sessions for women at all levels of their careers.
