Breakfast @ Tiffany's Summer 2016 Newsletter

Breakfastlogo1.jpg

 

Dear Friends,

Happy first day of summer! I hope you have some summer adventure on the horizon. I heard that half the enjoyment of a trip is the anticipation leading up to it.

I’m excited to share that we're making a new film about the past, present, and future of women and power. It’s part of Refinery29’s women director’s series called Shatterbox. The 10 minute film will be released in the fall and we are also working on a larger series on the topic. Last week, I was honored to attend the extremely inspiring gathering at The White House’s United State of Women Summit. It was such an invigorating place to feel where we are and where we need to go. Highlights below.

We're also gearing up for Character Day on September 22. So far over 13,000 events in over 40 countries have signed up! (There’s so much news in regards to Character Day that we will send a separate email.) Focusing on scientific research about character development is especially important today, individually and for society. Krista Tippet and I discuss it on her podcast On Being here

This newsletter has a new format for a new crop of art shows, films, books and things to explore for summer.

To the longest day of the year...

Tiffany

Tiffany Shlain Profiled in Gratitude Revealed

 gratitude-revealed.jpg 

 

There’s a Goethe quote that Tiffany Shlain has had framed on her desk since she was a little girl:

“Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.
Begin it now.”


By any standard for success, Tiffany has accomplished a lot. She has contributed an impressive amount of value to the world, combining film with the web to make and evolve change. She is an Emmy-nominated filmmaker, founder of the Webby Awards, has spoken at multiple TED events, and delivered a commencement speech to UC Berkeley praised as among the best ever by NPR, just to name a few feathers in her signature chapeau.


Family is a priority for Shlain, and themes of connection are predominant throughout her work. Both her family and her companies, The Moxie Institute Film Studio and nonprofit Let It Ripple, are based in San Francisco, where she is currently preparing to launch her 3rd annual global event, Character Day.

We had the privilege and honor of sitting down with Tiffany to discuss focus, moxie and inspirational tips for how to produce effective change in the world.
