09/30/2015 -1st Annual San Francisco Event

On September 30, 2015 Vital Voices Council of the Bay Area hosted the 1st Vital Voices San Francisco event at the SFJAZZ Center.  The event honored three extraordinary women from our network and included inspirational talks by these leaders, a series of on-stage interviews and short films about what they envision for the future. The women featured included Yin Myo Su of Myanmar, a conservationist and entrepreneur who is shaping a movement for socially responsible business in Myanmar, Kah Walla, a political leader in Cameroon who mobilizes the talent, power and potential of citizens to create a more equitable society, and Samar Minallah Khan, a Pakistani anthropologist who makes films that encourage cultural change to end violence against women.

As part of the event, Cambria Winery presented the Cambria Seeds of Empowerment Grant to Yin Myo Su.
