Diane von Furstenberg
Television journalist and former CNN White House correspondent Jessica Yellin led a conversation with Diane von Furstenberg who shared her vision for her next stage in life, her perspectives on strength, the power of women, and the role of confidence and beauty, as well insights from her own life story.
While renowned for creating the wrap-dress, Diane's commitment to empowering women has been expressed not only through fashion but also philanthropy and mentorship. Her advocacy includes the DVF Awards that honor and support extraordinary women who have had "the courage to fight, the power to survive and the leadership to inspire." Dr. Martine Rothblatt, CEO of United Therapeutics and an inher circle speaker in March 2016, was a 2016 DVF Lifetime Leadership Award winner. Ms. von Furstenberg's family foundation also supports work that "positively impacts the world by improving people’s lives and strengthening communities."
"If you really practice your strength and you feel strong, you don't have to show it off. It's really for you...All of your power is in yourself. It just is. And so you just have to find ways to reach it."
Diane von Furstenberg on the challenge of being a strong woman in business.
