On October 1st, industry’s elite gathered for a ‘Woman of Impact’ discussion with Glenn Close, Annie Starke and Nadja Swarovski, Member of the Swarovski Executive Board moderated by Astrid von Stockar. The NZZ Forum provided a grand setting for the event which covered topics such as the role of women in business and society, and women’s opportunities to create positive impact. Organized by the Müller-Möhl Foundation and Spoundation Motion Picture, Glenn Close also discussed her career and her role in the new film The Wife, in which the protagonist liberates herself from her husband.
Nadja Swarovski, Executive Board Member at Swarovski, shares, “We are delighted having opened our partnership with the ‘Women of Impact’ discussion. Swarovski has been closely involved in the world of cinema since the earliest days of Hollywood. This exciting event provides a fantastic platform to showcase our passion for culture and the performing arts, alongside our wider commitment to supporting women’s empowerment issues across society.”
In addition to supporting the discussion, Swarovski hosted numerous fetes throughout the festival. As a prelude to the discussion, Swarovski hosted an exclusive luncheon in the luxurious surroundings of the prestigious Baur au Lac hotel for local and international film and business leaders. The Frauenbadi on Zurich’s Stadthausquai provided a picturesque location for a glamorous cocktail reception on October 2 for Swarovski customers and media industry leaders that rounded out the festivities in style.
