March 31st was a very important day for women around the world to come together both physically and virtually to celebrate Women’s History Month. The First Annual “International Women’s Unity Summit” was held at the Miami Freezone yesterday, March 31, 2015, where women from over twenty countries connected to discuss a variety of topics, including women in politics, education, leadership and more.
This summit is an annual affair organized by Bettinara Enterprises, Inc. and its organizing committee, IWUS, together with Safespace Foundation and the Proudly (UNITE) to End Violence Project. This year, the theme was “Women Empowering the Future–Making the Global Connection.” Each year, partial proceeds go to non-profit organizations working to aid women and their families affected by violence locally and internationally.
It was a great honor for Hear Congo to be recognized yesterday as one of the two organizations that benefited from the First Annual summit. Kaleba Huguette Ngoie, founder of Hear Congo, was a panelist in the Women in Philanthropy and Global Change agent panel, highlighting the objective of her non-profit organization.
This international women’s summit was created with the aim to provide women with an opportunity to gain leadership in professional development on issues important to women in today’s global arena. By giving women a chance to come together and learn from each other’s life stories, this annual event offers opportunities not only for inspiring female business leaders, but also for corporations and industry leaders to directly contribute to empowering women in the global community.
