Check out our interview with Dee Rivera of Dee & Co., the event organizer. We had a chance to speak with her before the event to learn more about Glambition and their commitment to helping women knock down walls with their heels.
Tell us about Glambition and its commitment to empowering women.
Our goal is to empower women, whether you are a CEO, Author or Startup with workshops, tools, networking events and our platform Glambition is to help them in their journey as well as set them up to WIN.
What is Knocking Down Walls In Heels about?
We created that term and hashtag #KnockingDownWallsInHeels because women wear several shoes as well as many hats….Heels are about feeling powerful. You can walk or run in them, but you are heading to your goal and taking each step to success… There are no elevators… You are knocking down walls in heels and opening doors for those who will follow in those steps.
What inspired you to create this outlet for women?
I think for me, it was an idea and I wanted the name to be something that expressed femininity but also ambition...voila GLAMBITION!
How excited are you about this year's Beauty Night Out?
