On Tuesday, September 20, 2022, in tandem with the 77th United Nations General Assembly in New York City, kate spade new york hosted a series of panel discussions to highlight the critical role that mental health plays in the pursuit of sustainable women’s empowerment.

Speakers included representatives from kate spade new york’s Social Impact Council, individuals with their own lived experience of mental health conditions, and experts including;

Taraji P. Henson: Actor, filmmaker & founder of the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation

Latham Thomas: Maternal health expert and Founder of Mama Glow

Jazz Thornton: Mental health advocate, writer, film director, and Founder of Voices for Hope

“​​At kate spade new york, we believe in the vital role a woman’s mental health plays in her empowerment,” shared Taryn Bird, Senior Director, Social Impact at kate spade new york. “We started this work ten years ago with our partners in Rwanda, and since then, have integrated mental health into our women’s and girl’s empowerment work globally. Women’s mental health has long been underfunded, under-valued and under-represented. We believe that should change, and we are committed to doing our part in seeing that change come to life.“

During the event, Taryn Bird announced the brand’s plans to launch a new global research study on the state of mental health within women’s empowerment in partnershipwith Prospira Global, the Social Impact Council, and a group of independent advisors. This research will be released in July 2023 at the Women Deliver Conference in Kigali, Rwanda.
