Spanish Queen Letizia, today, presided over the closing ceremony of the third edition of the ‘Santander Women NOW’ Summit at the Vocento Headquarters in Madrid. The summit was organised by Vocento to discuss equality and female leadership.
The Santander WomenNOW congress was created with the aim of offering the keys to building the world we dream of. The two editions held so far were a success. Santander WomenNOW #MakeHERStory, organized in 2019, brought together more than 3,000 visitors. Meanwhile, Santander WomenNOW Reset, which was held in 2020 in hybrid mode (face-to-face and online), added almost one million views.
The summit covered three days with fifty international and current speakers who debated the trends that will govern the future of the planet, offering a program that combines science, activism and art under the title “The world we want.” And it begins with the intervention of Cori Bargmann, scientific director of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative foundation, created by the founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, and his wife, Priscilla Chan. The American neurobiologist and geneticist spoke about the challenges of science in a post-pandemic world.
Paying a tribute to the victims of recent murder crimes, Queen Letizia said, “it is difficult this morning to avoid the expression of pain and sadness over the murder of minors, sad news that we received in the last hours. I don’t think there is anyone this morning who does not try to put themselves in the shoes of all the people who love these girls, these murdered minors”.
Under the title “This is how we count the world”, the program of the afternoon session featured voices from the world of culture as interesting and well-known as the writer Dylan Farrow; and the journalist Ana Rosa Quintana, who offered a dialogue with the producer Teresa Fernández Valdés. The day of the 10th ends with a true icon of 20th-century culture: designer Diane von Furstenberg.
For the day, Queen Letizia brought back her Pink Embellished wool-blend bouclé midi dress from American Label Michael Kors that she first wore in July 2018 during the meeting with President Trump and First Lady in the US.
The dress is defined as “Michael Kors Collection’s midi dress is dyed a vibrant bubblegum hue that feels so right for spring. Cut from wool-blend bouclé, this retro-inspired style is trimmed with enamelled buttons along the faux side pockets and has a sheath silhouette that hugs your curves. Wear yours with or without the metallic silver belt”.
Today, Letizia finished her look with bezel studs and
Karen Hallam ring.
