#WeUpWomen receptions are intimate events hosted in unique spaces where men and women come together, play games and add value to each other by sharing impact stories about women who’ve helped them achieve a goal. In 2018, the #WeUpWomen Tour will host events in 10 international cities in preparation of the launch the highly anticipated goal achievement app WeUp in 2019. Using good news as away to counterbalance the rising culture of us versus them and men versus women, these timely events are a way to acknowledge and transform #MeToo into #WeUpWomen.
In each market WeUp honors women who have put humanitarian values into action. The Adelaide Smith Awards highlight the legacy of women who embody her four values of innovation, philanthropy, business and caregiving… nurturing others to their full potential.
