The lunch will be held at Manhattan’s Cipriani Midtown and will feature speeches by each of the five women, paying tribute to their respective philanthropic causes. This will be the second annual Power of Women: New York event, the first of which was held in 2014 and featured a list of honorees which included Claire Danes, Idina Menzel and Sarah Jessica Parker.
Women With A Worthy Cause
The event was founded in order to serve as a demonstration of women’s accomplishments and all that is achievable by strong women who have set their mind to something.
“Variety’s Power of Women initiative has become a shining example of what is possible when committed women with a voice stand up for worthy causes and harness their power to give back and inspire others to do the same,” said Michelle Sobrino, Variety publisher. “Launching the event in New York last year was immensely gratifying for both Variety and our partner Lifetime, and we are honored to share this day with our incredible new charity partner, the Entertainment Industry Foundation. Together we will further magnify the beautiful spirit the Power of Women series exemplifies.”
