Variety recently held its annual Power of Women luncheon in New York City and this year, there are more impressive females joining the ranks of tremendous honorees. The 2016 Variety Power of Women inductees include Julianne Moore, Lupita Nyong’o, Misty Copeland, Vera Wang and Megyn Kelly.
Each of the philanthropic women earned their own spot on the cover of Variety magazine’s special issue.
The mag’s Power of Women issue celebrates the achievements of influential females who support charitable organizations that bring awareness to imperative causes.
Fellow Oscar-winning Lupita Nyong’o supports women and children in Uganda and other underserved regions around the globe. She teamed up with Mother Health International to create locally engaged birthing centers to ensure women have healthy deliveries.
Meanwhile, Misty Copeland is giving back to the organization that helped her rise to fame in the ballet industry. Copeland supports Project Plie, which promotes diversity in dance. It’s a partnership between the American Ballet Theatre and the Boys & Girls Club of America.
In addition to her roots with the Boys & Girls Club, this organization has a special place in her heart because she is the first black woman promoted to principal dancer with ABT.
Famed wedding dress designer Vera Wang is honored for her close work with the New York- Presbyterian Youth Anxiety Center. She and Vogue’s Anna Wintour worked together to create the center, which assists young people with anxiety and depression management.
Finally, Fox Network’s Megyn Kelly is fighting back against child abuse in America. She’s an advocate for the cause in collaboration with Childhelp and currently donates her time by helping with the organization’s fundraisers.
