Description

Join us for the Women of the World Festival (WOW) Think-In on Wednesday, September 19, 2018 at 6:30pm!

As a valued community leader, we would like to invite you to join us in conversation to help shape the next edition of the Apollo’s Women of the World Festival (WOW), a dynamic four-day celebration of women and girls. The spirit of the conversation is to identify issues and themes that are critical to women here in New York City and around the world.

WOW is a powerful four-day gathering of artists, activists and thought-leaders from around the globe using their work to advance gender equity for all. This extraordinary event features performances, talks, mentoring sessions and debates that celebrate the achievements of women and girls and examine the obstacles we still face. Founded in 2011 at Southbank Centre London, WOW has grown beyond an annual program into a global movement with 42 WOW festivals on 5 continents. We are proud to be the festival’s New York City home.

Past participants of the Apollo’s WOW have included Nobel Prize Winner, Leymah Gbowee; Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong'o; Phoebe Robinson (of Two Dope Queens); Olympian Gabby Douglas; actress Gabourey Sidibe, Iyanla Vanzant, Macy Gray, Women’s March leaders Tamika Mallory and Carmen Perez and many many more.

We are thrilled to be presenting this powerful gathering for a third time.

In preparation for our next WOW scheduled for March 14-17, 2019, we’d love for you to attend this Think-In session on September 19, 2018 from 6:30pm – 8:30pm. You MUST rsvp in order to gain entry. Beverages and light refreshments will be served. Please note, participation in this conversation does not imply or require long term commitment or investment in the festival - we just want to hear your unique point of view.

I hope you can join us for this lively discussion.

best,

The Apollo WOW Team
