In light of the women.nyc launch, we partnered up with The Wing & City Hall to host an unforgettable F*it where we heard from a lineup of extraordinary women recanting the power moves they have made on the road to success.

We heard from:

– Alicia Glen, Deputy Mayor of New York City (a total boss, and the woman behind our entire women.nyc campaign!)

– Reshma Saujani, Girls Who Code

– Lisa Price, Founder of Carol’s Daughter

– Audrey Gelman, The Wing

– Moderated by: our very own, Nicole Corbett, Worn

Through women.nyc we have been equally encouraged & proud of the city we choose to call home, and called to action. Our partner and client in bringing women.nyc to life, Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen, opened the night talking through New York City’s track record of helping working women: The city has the highest number of women CEOs and the smallest wage gap in the country, and local government has reportedly invested approximately $800 million in women-owned businesses in the past three years.

Despite this success, the average woman might not know about all the resources and protections provided to her by the city. The women.nyc portal is designed to provide a gateway to that information.

She spoke on how she intimately understands how women in the workforce still face shocking inequality. The pay gap persists. Investment in women lags. Gender bias holds women back. The mission we co-created with Deputy Mayor Glen was to leverage the resources of New York City’s government to empower its women by intentionally and strategically helping to level the playing field.

Reshma, Audrey and Lisa are three of those strong, smart, risk taking New York City female entrepreneurs, and it’s part of our mission to share and democratize learnings to other women in the hustle.  

“The thing that is so beautiful about failure and loss is that before that moment in life i did wahat everyone else wanted me to do and for the first time I did what I wanted to do.”
– Reshma Saujani, Girls Who Code

“Women in business are finally getting to a place where we dont need to find an ‘appropriate voice’ anymore.”
– Lisa Price, Founder of Carol’s Daughter

“I’ve worked hard to cultivate a culture where we can be running fast but taking care of each other and if one us trips and stumbles they are not trying to bolt.”
– Audrey Gelman, The Wing
