The First Annual Phenomenal Brunch

MARCH 25, 2017 | THE CECIL | NEW YORK, NY

An afternoon of brunch provided by The Cecil and sponsored bubbly combined with conversation from our selected panelists, Phenomenal Brunch seeks to spark the spirit of female community and strength. Panelists will answer questions proposed by both the planning committee and attendees alike. Attendees will, also, have the opportunity to bid on our silent auction items throughout the event. Entertainment will be provided by the Alexander Layne Jazz Trio accompanied by vocalist Pucci Amanda Jhones and Kiyoko Yamaoka on piano. All proceeds will be donated to the Boys & Girls Club of Harlem.

THIS YEAR'S THEME: BREAKING THE GLASS CEILING

This year marks the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage in New York State. Nearly after a century of having been granted the right to vote, we witnessed Hillary Clinton, a former New York State Senator become the first female to win the nomination for the presidency of the United States. Though the loss of the election may have stunned our female population, it has also brought cause for women to reexamine our position and value in society.

We've made tremendous strides since 1917. However, in the wake of recent events, we are reminded that our work is not done. We must continue to convene with and support one another, as to not let the achievements of those before us, simply, be history. We must use them as examples to keep our progress an ongoing and never-ending endeavor.

THE PANELISTS

Hope Harley | President of the Board, Bronx Children's Museum

Kasha Cacy | U.S. CEO, Universal McCann

Gillian Thomas | Senior Staff Attorney, ACLU Women's Rights Project

Malaika Layne-Myers | Senior Vice-President, Jardin Corporation
