New York University’s Organization of Black Women group presents, The Eighth Annual “Women On The Move” panel on March 26, 2014 at Kimmel Center 60 Washington Square South, 4th floor at 6PM.
Women On The Move is designed to prepare young women for successful futures and careers within the political, music, fashion, film, and business industries. Their mission, along with the guidance of the Black Women Group and New York University, is to INFORM, EDUCATE, & EMPOWER young women.
Joining the discussion this year will be entrepreneur Angela Simmons, Fashion Stylist to the stars Cleo Wade (most notable client Katy Perry), club owner and reality star Tahiry Jose, and a surprise guest.
The Women on the Move panel will discuss:
• HOW TO BRAND YOURSELF
• CREATING YOUR OWN CAREER
• HOW TO BE BECOME YOUR OWN BOSS
Women on the Move (WOTM) goals are to provide students with critical insight on the different career opportunities that are available to them and to coach and mentor their students on exactly how they can achieve their goals. “Using your brand and being your own boss can avoid some of the pervasive culture of inequality in corporate America as it pertains to gender and more specifically, women”, says Amber J Ravenel (Board member of WOTM).
WOTM aims to instill female youth with hope for a successful future. It is their belief that by collaborating with strong female industry leaders in our community that each of those guest speakers will leave the WOTM platform with a profound sense of accomplishment and fulfillment; they would leave knowing that they gave back to their sisterhood. In the past, WOTM has had incredible speakers such as journalist and Political industry tycoon, Danyel Smith, author, NBC Talk Stoop’s Cat Greenleaf, and District 21 Council Member Julissa Ferreras (the first elected Latina council in the borough of Queens).
