It's one of our favorite events of the year.
With International Women's Month taking place in March, Ballin’ 4 Peace is proud to announce its 3rd Annual Celebrating Our Wins women's panel discussion. This yearly event brings together thought leaders and influential women from various industries and backgrounds to share their experiences, insights, and perspectives on the progress and challenges facing women today.
The 3rd Annual Women’s Panel will be held at Democracy Prep Endurance High School (240 E. 123rd Street, New York) on Friday, March 10th, starting at 9:30 am.
“Each year we hold this event, it gets bigger and better,” said Ballin’ 4 Peace Founder, Haron Hargrave.
“The best part about year three of the Annual Women’s Panel, is not only being able to recognize our panelists for their contributions in strengthening our communities, but also being able to reach so many young people in that process. It’s their chance to hear about leadership and growth, and see it as well by meeting our panelists.”
The 3rd Annual Celebrating Our Wins women’s panel will feature Marie David (Moderator), Vina Love (Singer, Songwriter, Performer, CEO, philanthropist, business owner) DJ RIA (DJ, Host, Model), Samra Hill (Embodied Essentials), and Soukaina Sourouri (Sourouri Law Firm). This year's panel will once again provide a unique platform for women to share their stories, advocate for change, and inspire others, as Ballin’ 4 Peace strives to encourage dialogue, foster collaboration, and promote equality as we celebrate International Women’s Month together.
