Visionary Women hosted the inaugural “Women in Technology” forum on Feb. 26 at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. Visionary Women members Angella Nazarian, Beverly Hills Mayor Lili Bosse, Veronica Smiley and Ambassador Nicole Avant hosted the event, along with luxury retailer net-a-porter.com.
Celebrities, industry VIPs and 12 students from the local Ladies First program were among the 200 guests who attended the event. The students are pictured with Nazarian (center), who founded Visionary Women. Ladies First is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating, empowering and inspiring female students to become college and career-ready high school graduates.
The event was moderated by five-time Emmy-winning journalist Giselle Fernandez, and included a panel presentation by four leaders in the technology industry — Dawn Ostroff, president of Condé Nast Entertainment; Pauline Fischer, vice president of original programming for Netflix; Doris Kim Sung, founder of Dosu Architecture; and Julie Uhrman, founder and CEO of Ouya.
“We launched the Visionary Women Salons in an effort to build a multi-generational community of engaged women who want to connect with the world’s most inspired thinkers through dynamic discussions,” said Nazarian, a best-selling author and speaker. “We’re excited to work with an accomplished lineup of women to launch our salon and to witness the tangible changes following the events.”
