Description

The Power of Passionistas is a three-day virtual event at which unstoppable self-identified women and non-binary people from the AAPI, Black, disability, Indigenous, Latinx, LGBTQIA+ communities and others, come together to discuss how their diverse groups are affected by the pressing issues women face today.

Storyteller events, roundtable discussions and panels will be centered around the Power of Media, Power of Transformation, Power of Authenticity, Power of Knowledge and many more. See the full roster of speakers and the schedule here.

The culminating event of the summit is the Passionistas Persist Awards. This year awards will also be presented in other categories to actress and original cast member of "Saturday Night Live" Laraine Newman, author and activist Soraya Chemaly, Rebecca Cokley, the first U.S. Disability Rights Program Officer for the Ford Foundation, Danay Escanaverino, an award-winning Latina serial entrepreneur, speaker and community builder and LAMIK Beauty Founder Kim Roxie.

A portion of the proceeds from the summit will be donated to Shero's Rise, an organization that empowers girls in underserved communities through educational programming and meaningful mentorship to activate their inner strengths and guide their  journey of internal discovery.
