ADVISORY, March 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Tory Burch Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering women entrepreneurs, will visit the Nasdaq MarketSite in Times Square, as part of its “Embrace Ambition” campaign.
Launched Wednesday (3/8/17) to coincide with International Women's Day and Women’s History Month, the Tory Burch Foundation's "Embrace Ambition" campaign encourages women to own their power, drive and dreams. Inspired by Tory’s personal experience as a woman and an entrepreneur, the campaign aims to address the double standard that exists around ambition, which is often seen as a great attribute in men and as a negative one in women.
In honor of the occasion, Laurie Fabiano, President of the Tory Burch Foundation will ring the Closing Bell.
