Gucci’s CHIME FOR CHANGE partners with The Meteor to present second global gender equality summit
Building on the strength and power of the inaugural 21 For ’21 summit, Gucci’s CHIME FOR CHANGE has partnered once again with The Meteor to present the second annual global summit for gender equality, 22 For ’22: Visions For a Feminist Future, on May 9.
In its second year, the global gathering will feature 22 influential leaders, activists and artists from around the world—with the aim of connecting issues related to gender equality. Hosted by Symone D. Sanders, the celebrated author, political strategist, and host of MSNBC’s new show Symone, 22 For ’22 will kick off with a live event on April 26th in New York. The virtual summit will bring segments from the live event—plus others from additional contributors—to a larger audience, streaming live on May 9 and available for viewing worldwide on May 10.
“As a global company, we believe it is fundamental to convene, unite, and strengthen the voices speaking out for gender equality around the world, and this is why Gucci is proud to partner with The Meteor again this year to continue to advance meaningful progress.”
