#Kotaday 2018: Keynote speaker Simin Farkhondeh

by Sonja Liukkonen

We hosted #KotaDay, the annual celebration of women's empowerment, on February 2, 2018. The theme for this year’s #Kotaday was storytelling for women’s empowerment, and we had many inspirational presentations from experts from various fields of storytelling and marketing. If you were unable to attend our event or you want to experience the presentations again, you have the possibility to do so. First, we would like to thank our keynote speaker Simin Farkhondeh, an award-winning filmmaker, artist, educator & activist. She directs films with a progressive message. Her work has appeared on PBS, Whitney Museum, the Margaret Film Festival and elsewhere. At Kotaday Simin had a powerful presentation: “How to communicate gender issues and social justice to the media?” You can now watch the video from the presentation here and see Simin’s PowerPoint here.

Stay tuned for more posts about our event! Thank you to all who showed up and participated and to Proskauer, Whole Foods Market and Finlandia Cheese in helping us to make our event successful.
