2019 Breakthrough Inspiration Awards
April 24, 2019 @ 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM
On Wednesday, April 24, Breakthrough will present our annual Inspiration Awards at the Pierre. The Breakthrough Inspiration Awards recognize leaders who stand for equality, humanity, and the power of culture change. Our gala benefit dinner brings together more than 400 luminaries, advocates, and allies—representing corporate leaders, global media partners, philanthropists, and human rights change-makers—to connect with one voice and purpose.
This annual event enables Breakthrough to amplify its mission: ending gender violence and uplifting our shared humanity. We draw energy for our next challenges from celebrating our shared successes.
