New York City is about to get a strong dose of female empowerment with The Other Festival, the first all-female conference focusing on women in business. The all-day event will be held in Spring Studios in TriBeCa on Saturday, June 11 with doors opening at 10:15 a.m.

The concept and event were both generated by former Hollywood executive and WIE founder Dee Poku, with its mission stating, "The Other is what makes you different, stand out, mold breaking, unlike everyone else. It’s about loving what’s distinctive and unique about you. It’s about refusing to conform to society’s expectations. Why would you want to be like everyone else?"

An incredible line-up of talks and workshops fill the day, featuring a diverse range of female icons including model Naomi Campbell, actress Rosario Dawson, designer Cynthia Rowley, and co-founder of The Coveteur Stephanie Mark. From an opening session of yoga and mindfulness to a workshop on business speed dating, The Other Festival is leaving no stone left unturned when it comes to succeeding in your field. After a full day of networking and motivation, the party moves to music venue HAUS for live performances from several artists, including GLAM, Jojo Abot and Justine Skye.

Today is the last day to purchase tickets, so head over to Eventbrite and use the code 'OTHER40F' for a 40% discount on your purchase. For a complete schedule, information on the event's mission and directions, visit the festival's website.
