Driven by our Purpose of inspiring women to shine with every step, Stuart Weitzman is proud to partner with our global ambassador Kate Hudson to announce the launch of our Bold Moves Grant program. An expansion of our hero partnership with Vital Voices Global Partnership, a non-profit organization committed to investing in women leaders who are solving the world’s challenges, the program is made possible by a donation on behalf of the brand by the Tapestry Foundation.
In celebration of International Women's Month, we partnered with Kate Hudson and Vital Voices to select 5 women leaders from around the world, each making bold moves to empower their communities in everyday moments in their own way.
“These incredible women leaders demonstrate their unique strength through their work in empowering their communities, and I believe that, through the Bold Moves Grant program with Stuart Weitzman and Vital Voices, Claudia, Nora, Natalie, Sara and Neysara will be able to achieve even more. I can’t wait to see what they do,” says Kate.
