On May 30th, fifteen distinguished women gathered in New York City for the Diversity Affluence Secret Supper Club.
This gathering, in partnership with Amethyst Entertainment, was to help launch the inaugural Women with Purpose Global Summit taking place in St. Martin/St. Maarten from June 18th – 22nd.
The evening was sponsored by Cadillac. Guests included Eboni Gates, VP of Charitable Donations for RBC Capital Markets, Sthu Zunga, President of South African Tourism, WABC news reporter Sandra Bookman, Ellen Chube, VP and Chief of Staff to the Chairman & CEO of Ariel Investments and others.
During dinner the women discussed the importance of philanthropy, mentorship, paying it forward and leaving a legacy. After two hours of heartfelt, open and honest conversation the sponsor surprised guests with a one week lease of a Cadillac.
Cadillac is the primary sponsor of the Women with Purpose Global Summit where Diversity Affluence Founder and CEO, Andrea Hoffman, will be leading a round table discussion on philanthropy. Other summit speakers include Iyanla Vanzant, Judy A. Smith, and Soledad O’brien.
About the Secret Supper Club
The Secret Supper Club (SSC) is an influencer and social impact program. Conceived by Andrea Hoffman of Diversity Affluence, this invitation-only dinner is dedicated to fostering new and deepening existing friendships among same gender, affluent and influential business leaders.
SSC is not a business forum. Its aim is to stimulate intellectual and social discourse among guests focused on discussing mentorship, philanthropy, paying it forward, and leaving a legacy.
SSC was born out of research Diversity Affluence conducted in 2009 among affluent African American men and women. Research insight indicated that this powerful and growing demographic desires to spend more quality time with like-minded peers discussing topics of substance.
