Jordan’s call to Hollywood

Queen meets with entertainment diplomats

“They say Hollywood is in the entertainment business, but really it is in the connection biz,” said Queen Rania Al-Abdullah of Jordan. “Connecting so we feel our common humanity. Microfinancing is all about connecting people to the capital they need to take control of their lives.”

The queen was speaking for Finca, which makes small loans to women in developing nations. Among the guests at the March 19 luncheon at Mortons in Los Angeles co-hosted by Paula Wagner, Paula Weinstein and Rosalie Swedlin were mostly femme leaders of the industry.
