I’ve been lucky enough to align myself with some amazing companies as a Brand Ambassador but nothing makes me more proud than being associated with a brand that gives back to the community and helps to empower other women. Ann Taylor’s parent company, Ann Inc., has teamed up with Vital Voices to give 50 young women a chance to become an ANNpower fellow and receive leadership training and mentorship from some phenomenal female leaders from across the globe in media, entertainment and business. Usually reserved for only high school students in the United States, this year will mark the first time the opportunity has been extended to Canadians, which is pretty awesome.

The ANNpower Vital Voices leadership forum will take place this year from June 16th – 19th, 2014 in Washington, DC.
