[ONWARD!] Event celebrates women "aging boldly"
On April 20, ICAA’s Web News editor, Marilynn Larkin, joined 100 women (and a few men!) in New York City at an event by NextTribe called “Aging boldly,” one a series of events held in various cities that aims to connect middle-aged and older women by comparing experiences, feelings and paths forward.
Hosted by NextTribe founder and CEO Jeannie Ralston, a journalist and author, the event mingled speakers with networking and an opportunity for audience members to contribute how they are “aging boldly.” Speakers included Amy Ferris, the author of two memoires, “Marrying George Clooney” and the upcoming “Messy Love”; former news anchor Carol Jenkins, now CEO of the ERA Coalition; publishing titan Cathie Black, former publisher of USA Today and chair of Hearst Magazines; and comedian and former broadcast journalist, Maureen Langan.
Writing about the event, Ralston said, “We are Aging Boldly by hitting not just one note, by doing not just what’s expected of us, but by defying stereotypes at every turn and firing on all engines. And always, always, helping other women do the same.”
