Jane Wurwand, Chief Visionary and Founder of Dermalogica and FITE, the brand’s global philanthropic initiative, participated on a women’s empowerment panel titled “Beginning with Women” at the Town & Country second annual Philanthropy Summit held at the New York Historical Society in New York City.

Moderated by Award-winning journalist and MSNBC news anchor, Tamron Hall, the panel also included Ambassador Nicole Avant; Catherine Shimony, Global Goods Partners; and Bonnie Stone, Women in Need. The unifying theme was identifying solutions to help move the gender equality conversation forward. One of the central solutions was the importance of providing women with educational and employment opportunities as a means to help eliminate gender inequality and poverty.

“It’s not just about educating, it’s about learning how to do,” Wurwand commented on the subject of gender equality and creating women’s global economic empowerment through the power of vocational training.
