The Occasion

A Celebration of Women is the creation of educator, author, screenwriter, and producer Gisele Haralson. It was her desire to bring together women of all walks of life to celebrate each other. To uplift, inspire, and motivate.

Gisele envisioned a gathering of minds in regard to life, equality, and career. While building on the successes and accomplishments of women all over the world, it was her mission to draw attention to the many roles that women play in society and the tremendous impact they have on families, businesses, communities, and the overall well-being of mankind.

Gisele’s research and past experiences revealed the strong resilience of women of all races and backgrounds. The women A Celebration of Women honor and recognize this year have thrived in their respective businesses, careers, and everyday life.

With the abundance of opportunities available today, even modest ones, women have been able to stand strong, lift their families out of poverty, start businesses, escape violent situations, enhance their knowledge and expertise, better care for themselves, their families and their communities. A woman’s impact is felt far beyond what is present to the naked eye.

Women have emerged as leaders and catalysts for change in our communities, workplace, government, and A Celebration of Women is a way to unite strong female voices by truly encouraging, embracing, linking, and uplifting each other. But more than anything, this celebration is about teaching children the importance of giving back and caring for others, as embodied virtuously by this year’s honorees.

The mission of this event is to celebrate and honor women for their achievement and accomplishments, but more than anything, to share their experiences and visions for a better society for all women and children.
