Women, meet mentors at cleveland.com’s Mentoring Monday summit in February

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Northeast Ohio women can meet dozens of mentors virtually through Mentoring Monday on Feb. 22.

The program presented by Advance Ohio, including The Plain Dealer and cleveland.com, will take place from noon to 2 p.m. and will be hosted on the online platform Remo.

Beate Blaich-Smith Agency Business Dev Lead for Advance Ohio says the program works to help local professional women create a network and learn from one another.

“It’s basically for all professional women who want to connect and learn from each other and get some advice from women in leadership positions,” says Blaich-Smith.

Last year, at the first Mentoring Monday, dozens of Northeast Ohio women from business, real estate, science, theater, non-profits, higher education, and more met to discuss careers and goals.

“It was fantastic, we had over 300 women in the room, and it was women from all walks of life,” says Blaich-Smith.

Blaich-Smith says the summit is not a “one size fits all” event, women from all walks of life and professional backgrounds are always encouraged to get involved with the program.

This year, though virtual, the program will continue to include one-on-one speed coaching, three to four short conversations with different mentors, and group sessions.

No keynote speaker has been chosen as of yet says Blaich-Smith.

New to the program is a pre-event podcast, featuring some of the sponsoring mentors, an expanded promotions plan, group discussion sponsorships, and a virtual gift bag.

Tickets are $30, available here. For $10 off, use the discount code EARLYBIRD.

The mentor list is expected to grow, here is a few of them:

Kendra Scott Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute Hosts First Annual Women’s Summit at The University of Texas at Austin

Empowering Women to Lead. Encouraging the World to Follow.

AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Today, the Kendra Scott Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute (WEL Institute) and The University of Texas at Austin hosted their first annual Women’s Summit.  This powerful virtual event follows last year’s announcement of the Kendra Scott Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute, which established a new female leadership program at the University. The Women’s Summit, hosted by the WEL Institute and attended by hundreds of students, was sponsored by Kendra Scott and Dell Technologies.

“Our first Women’s Summit put the national spotlight on Austin and some of the country’s greatest female trailblazers,” said Kendra Scott. “Our mission at the Women’s Entrepreneur Leadership Institute is to empower even more women to change the world.”

As UT Austin President Jay Hartzell said in the WEL Institute’s Summer 2020 Impact Report, “Entrepreneurship — and the entrepreneurial spirit — are key components of our local, state and global economies. Through its creative approaches to classroom instruction, experiential learning opportunities, community programming and connections to alumni and the business community, the WEL Institute is transforming our university and creating unprecedented opportunities for young Longhorns in business and beyond. Because of Kendra’s vision, there is no limit to what the Institute, and our students, can do.”

The Women’s Summit included a full day of programming with the preview of the Kendra Scott Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership Student Lounge, workshops, a virtual dinner with cookie deliveries from Tiff’s Treats, and panel discussions with some of today’s most successful and powerful women in their industries, including Kendra Scott, Maria Menounos, Nastia Liukin, Sheinelle Jones (TODAY), Abigail Cook Stone (Otherland Candles), Tiffany Masterson (Drunk Elephant), Tiffany Chen (Tiff’s Treats) and Liz Matthews (Dell Technologies), amongst others.

The Women’s Summit follows the September announcement of Kendra’s addition to UT Austin’s illustrious roster of professors, where she co-teaches a Women in Entrepreneurship course in a new faculty appointment as a Professor of Practice in the College of Fine Arts.

Alber Elbaz Reveals the Name of His New Brand and Its Visual Identity at Vogue’s Forces of Fashion Summit

Alber Elbaz and Hamish Bowles, in conversation at the Paris Ritz

Alber Elbaz had big news for Vogue’s International Editor at Large Hamish Bowles when they sat down in the Paris Ritz for their Forces of Fashion conversation. The designer, who entered into a partnership with the Swiss luxury group Richemont a year ago, has taken his time developing the new concept, but now he’s ready to talk. The label has an official name, AZ Factory, a new visual identity in the form of a spare, graphic face with big round eyes—it looks like a computer rendering of his face sketches—and a loose date of late January for its formal debut, presumably tied to the Paris couture shows.

“Our mission?” Elbaz asks in a brief intro video that rolled before his conversation with Bowles. “Not a revolution, not an evolution. A reset. This is not Alber Elbaz come back, this is the birth of AZ Factory.” In their chat, he expands on that idea.

“I feel good in studios, I feel good making things. I thought it was time to give back everything I learned through the years,” he begins. “Our job as designers is not just to create fashion shows, but to work around needs and then to bring the dream, and combine somehow function and fashion. More than that, I remember what Meryl Streep told me, that I always helped her to be a better version of her, and not to transform her. I think this is my job, I’m not trying to transform anyone, I’m just trying to make everyone, as much as I can, a better version of themselves.”

AZ Factory is a startup—one with the backing of a luxury group, but a startup nonetheless, and Elbaz likes that aspect. “For the first time I want to give birth to a new story and not to recreate or replace someone else. It’s a moment of change we are living today, and this moment of change, from my end, was starting a little smaller, a little bit more humble… I want to look at fashion from a different perspective.”

Victoria Beckham and Sienna Miller Talk Makeup, Movies, and More at Vogue’s Forces of Fashion Summit

Victoria Beckham and Sienna Miller joined this year’s Forces of Fashion summit

When Victoria Beckham launched her eponymous beauty brand a year ago she sent Sienna Miller a box of products. The actress—who knows a thing or two about makeup, having starred in movies and television series since she was 20—was an instant fan. During a conversation taped last week in London, Miller told Beckham she likes her lip liner best: “I used to have really nice freckles all over my nose and the top of my chin, but as I’ve gotten older, they kind of just blend into one big freckle. Your lip liner is the perfect freckle pencil. I use it on my lips, I use it on my eyes a little bit, and then I add a few freckles on there. It’s a very versatile pencil that you’ve made.”

Their Forces of Fashion chat was candid from start to finish, touching on other skincare tips, their young daughters, and their upcoming projects. Having just released a set of lid lustres—“nobody loves a sparkly eye more than I do,” she says—Beckham is on the verge of launching her first mascara. Miller, meanwhile, is in the UK filming a new Netflix series, Anatomy of a Scandal, with the creatives behind Big Little Lies and The Undoing, while simultaneously promoting Wander Darkly, the new film she stars in with Diego Luna, out next month.

Watch Jonathan Anderson in Conversation With Reggie Yates at Vogue’s Forces of Fashion Summit

Jonathan Anderson, creative director of Loewe and JW Anderson, has become one of the most influential designers of his generation by putting design at the intersection of fashion and culture. So it only makes sense that he would choose the Victoria and Albert museum, one of London’s most storied cultural institutions, as the backdrop for his appearance at this year’s Forces of Fashion conference. As Anderson puts it quite succinctly, “I don’t work for a fashion brand, I work for a cultural brand.” 

Over the course of his conversation with British actor and presenter Reggie Yates, Anderson unpacks the unorthodox nature of his creative process, and expounds on what it means to work with some of his creative heroes—the likes of celebrated British artists Gilbert and George and, more recently, American ceramicist Ken Price. For this designer, collaboration is very much “a learning tool.” 

Anderson opens up about his experiences growing up amid the troubles in Northern Ireland in the 1980s and 1990s, talking candidly about the role that conflict and confrontation has played in his work and life. Part of a new guard of millennial creatives, he understands the importance of disruption and speaks on how we can radically redefine the notion of luxury.

Watch Anderson and a host of other fashion luminaries—Virgil Abloh, Sarah Burton, Alber Elbaz among others—at Vogue’s virtual Forces of Fashion summit.

Jameela Jamil Joins Power Women Summit 2020

Activist, actor, host and founder of I Weigh Jameela Jamil will join WrapWomen’s 2020 Power Women Summit, the largest annual gathering of women in media and entertainment. With the theme “Inclusion 360,” the event will take place virtually December 8-10.

Jamil will discuss how she is using her I Weigh platform to celebrate progress, not perfection, in conversation with Dr. Deepika Chopra. Instead of giving into cancel culture, I Weigh is a radically inclusive community built to share ideas and stories that teach and mobilize activism. During this session, attendees will learn how to find value from within while making meaningful change both in their own communities and globally.

Jameela Jamil rose to fame as ‘Tahani’ in the Golden Globe-nominated series “The Good Place” and is currently the host of the TBS game show “The Misery Index.” In addition to her on-screen career, Jamil launched the movement and activism platform I Weigh. What started as an idea and an Instagram page became an online platform, YouTube channel and community of change makers who come together to share ideas, experiences and ultimately mobilize activism.

In April 2020 the “I Weigh with Jameela Jamil” podcast launched, in which Jamil speaks to different thought-leaders, performers, activists, influencers, and friends – including Gloria Steinem, Reese Witherspoon and Demi Lovato – about how they are working through their past shame to find where their value truly lies.

Dr. Deepika Chopra is an optimism doctor, professional psychologist, mental health advocate, founder of Things Are Looking Up and host of the Dear Media podcast, “Looking Up with Dr. Deepika Chopra.” Chopra is working toward redefining the popular yet impossible notion of “being positive all the time,” exposing toxic positivity and advocating for resiliency over perfection.
