The French Consulate hosts NewYorkHer and celebrates extraordinary women

Since Anne-Claire Legendre, first ever woman to be French Consul General in New York, has been in her role, she has been tirelessly promoting the place of women in society. We were so excited when she decided to host NewYorkHer for a special evening event in this ideal setting on Fifth Avenue.

About one hundred guests honored us with their presence, and had the pleasure to meet with the 10 NewYorkHer subjects. On stage with me were Ariane Daguin from D’Artagnan, Ruia Ahmadzada from Nari Skincare, and Alissa Baier-Lentz from Hero Backpacks, to share their stories and journeys. Our wonderful moderator was Jennifer Bisram, TV reporter and anchor journalist from Pix11.

A very memorable evening.
