WOMAN’S DAY: A power troika of Donna Karan, Arianna Huffington and Sarah Brown, wife of the former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, will host the first annual Women: Inspiration & Enterprise symposium in New York on Sept. 20. Coinciding with the Clinton Global Initiative and the convening of the U.N. General Assembly, the one-day event will feature a roster of speakers addressing issues of importance to women, including childbirth deaths and female technology entrepreneurs. The program also includes a fashion show spearheaded by Karan, who is inviting other designers to participate, as well as a cocktail party on the roof of Skylight West featuring a concert by Estelle. Among the confirmed speakers are Wendi Murdoch and model and activist Liya Kebede. Ticket proceeds benefit the White Ribbon Alliance for Safe Motherhood and Karan’s Urban Zen Foundation.
