NYC Celebrates Women

Is a platform to celebrate NYC influential women leaders. By using the power of philanthropy, networking, and knowledge, we raise funds to support NYC non-profits working towards women’s progress. This vision was born in 2018 to commemorate International Working Women’s Day. This years event will include a panel with prominent Latina leaders from various sectors to discuss the #METOO movement in the Latina/AfroLatina/Caribbean communities.
