“Be Bold For Change” was the theme for International Women’s Day on March 8, 2017. I wonder how many of us would see that boldness in any given little girl. Kristen Visbal, a noted sculptor, found that boldness and a way to inspire conversation on women’s roles, attitudes and future when she was commissioned by State Street Global Advisors to create a sculpture, “Fearless Girl.”

“I think the work is an important statement not just for the empowerment of women, both inside and outside of the financial world, but it also serves as an example for all young women.”   Kristen Visbal

When I covered the first Salon for a new women’s networking group called WOMEN A.R.E. earlier this year, I was confident that co-founders Angella Nazarian and Beth Friedman were going to be empowering women everywhere. Through their efforts, they bring together influential leaders to help create positive change on important issues that effect women worldwide.

Their first successful year is culminating in an Inaugural Summit on November 7 in Beverly Hills, CA. In this “intimate forum” for 300 women (which is already sold out), those attending will be able to connect with 25 prominent CEOs, entrepreneurs, artists and philanthropists. Sharon Stone is receiving their Trailblazer Award for her ceaseless dedication to charitable work.

I spoke with Beth Friedman just days before the big event to find out what’s in store for these lucky women attending the Summit. I only wish I could be there, but she assured me that there will be more gatherings like this in the future.
