At DVF, we celebrate women all year long, so what’s not to love about a day dedicated to exactly that. This Friday is International Women’s Day and we are inviting you to celebrate yourselves and to empower other women— between March 8 and March 10, 15% of proceeds from DVF boutiques will be donated to Vital Voices. Vital Voices is an organization that is very important to us, as Diane has served on the board since 2010. Vital Voices works tirelessly to identify, invest in and bring visibility to extraordinary women around the world by unleashing their leadership potential to transform lives and accelerate peace and prosperity in their communities.
In 2010, with the Diller-von Furstenberg Family Foundation, Diane established The DVF Awards which recognizes five extraordinary women who have had the courage to fight, the power to survive and the leadership to inspire in their commitment to women’s causes—two of whom are chosen from the Vital Voices Global Network.
So it is our honor and privilege to dedicate our International Women’s Day celebration to their efforts. And we hope you’ll join us on Friday to toast these extraordinary women who know that instilling confidence in other women is one of the most important things we can do. Vital Voices believes that to invest in women is to improve the world. And we couldn’t agree more.
Stay tuned for more information about this year’s DVF Awards, to be held on April 5 during Newsweek & The Daily Beast’s Women in the World Conference. And check back on March 11 to learn more about how you can join the conversation by voting for The People’s Voice Award.
Also, get a head start on the celebration with our “Proud to be Woman” Songza playlist featuring inspiring female artists who embody the DVF idea of “Be the woman you want to be!”
