Susie Ellis, chair and CEO of the Global Wellness Summit and Global Wellness Institute, will be honoured this month by the Metropolitan New York Chapter of the US National Committee for UN Women as a trailblazer for gender equality in wellness.

The “Champions of Change: Stand Up for Women Worldwide” event, which takes place 18 October at The Harmonie Club in New York, will be keynoted by Dr Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, UN Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director of UN Women.

Other honourees at the 30th anniversary event will include leaders in finance and diplomacy: Jolly Amatya, youth advocate, co-chair/youth chair of the 2015–17 Youth Assembly at the United Nations; and Erika Karp, founder and CEO of Cornerstone Capital Inc., founding board member of the Sustainable Accounting Standards board, member of World Economic Forum, Global Agenda Council on Financing and Capital, and former advisor to Clinton Global Initiative.

“We have been invigorated in the last year by the revitalised focus in the United States on women’s rights and gender equality and are thrilled to honor three incredible trailblazers – strong, visionary women who have made a difference in their respective fields, and as mentors to young women,” said New York Chapter president Mary Luke.
