Priyanka Chopra, Octavia Spencer, Michelle Pfeiffer, Patty Jenkins, Kelly Clarkson to Be Honored at Variety’s Power of Women

Variety has announced the honorees for the annual Power of Women luncheon, which will take place October 13 at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons. The event, in partnership with Lifetime Television, honors some of Hollywood’s most philanthropic women whose efforts have made a significant impact to their chosen charities and causes.

This years event honors Priyanka Chopra (UNICEF), Kelly Clarkson (XQ Institute), Patty Jenkins (Anti-Recidivism Coalition), Michelle Pfeiffer (Environmental Working Group), and Octavia Spencer (City Year). The Power of Women luncheon is tied to Variety‘s annual Women’s Impact Report, which profiles the most impactful women working in the entertainment industry this year. All of the honorees will be featured on the covers of the October 10 issue of Variety.

“We are once again honored to partner with Lifetime to present our Power of Women event,” said Michelle Sobrino-Stearns, group publisher and chief revenue officer of Variety. “At the heart of this event is a desire to promote the importance of philanthropy within the entertainment community. This year’s honorees are passionate and inspiring women working to help shine a light on causes important to them. We hope it inspires others to do the same.”

The Moroccanoil Inspiration To Action award will be given to Moroccanoil Inspired By Women ambassador Chrissy Beckles, founder and president of the Sato Project which rescues abused and abandoned dogs in Puerto Rico. The Variety 2017 EmPOWerment Award will be given to chairman and CEO of Salesforce Marc Benioff, who has worked to address unexplained differences in pay between gender, race, and ethnicity among employees within the company.

Also at the event, Audi will debut a Variety-produced video entitled “EQUAL,” showcasing the Power of Women honorees and select honorees from the Women’s Impact List talking about the importance of gender equality in the entertainment workplace.

Variety’s 2017 Power of Women event is presented by Lifetime Television. The premiere sponsors include Audi, Dermstore, who will be showcasing their glow.com regimens, Moroccanoil, and The Venetian Las Vegas, who will be showcasing The Dorsey — their signature cocktail bar.
