From IVY Ideas Night with some of the nation’s most compelling women to an epic winery tour and tasting on the North Fork, last week IVY held some incredible events across the country. We’re all about bringing people together for new and engaging ideas and adventures, whether it’s learning how to have presence with Amy Cuddy or zip-lining 100 feet in the air along the Potomac River.
Vineyard Trip: Lenz Winery, North Fork
Members escaped the city with an epic fall vineyard trip to the North Fork, New York state’s most famous wine region! We toured the vines of Lenz Winery, while enjoying an incredible tasting of 9 different estate and premium wines with certified wine experts.
Ideas Night: Achieving Power & Purpose
Two of the country’s most influential women, Melanne Verveer and Kim Azzarelli, shared insights for building a better world. Melanne Verveer is the Former Chief of Staff for Hillary Clinton and currently serves as the U.S. Ambassador for Global Women’s Issues, appointed by President Obama. Kim Azzarelli is the Chair and Co-Founder of Cornell Law School’s Avon Global Center for Women and Justice and serves as a Partner at Seneca Point Global. Melanne and Kim co-authored the acclaimed book Fast Forward: How Women Can Achieve Power and Purpose.
Private Art Viewing at ROSEGALLERY
Found, sliced, and assembled, the extraordinary photographic collages in ROSEGALLERY’s latest exhibition evoke the surreal and the spontaneous! Fellow members enjoyed an incredible IVY Art Night at ROSEGALLERY for a viewing of First Meteorite, their selection of unique photographic collages by an array of up-and-coming artists.
Sunset Zip-lining & Bonfire Party
Members took an epic day trip and flew high during an adrenaline-pumping zip-lining session and hillside BBQ and Bonfire Party! We headed to a nearby aerial course, where we soared through treetops along the Potomac River at sunset from heights of up to 40ft, zips up to 425ft, and a 100ft sky bridge.
Miami City Ballet Performance & Talk-back
IVY members went behind-the-scenes with some of the best dancers in Miami with an IVY Culture & Cocktails Night at the Miami City Ballet! We had exclusive backstage conversations with the dancers and a performance of one of the most famous ballets in the world, Balanchine’s classic masterpiece “Swan Lake.”
Ideas Night with Amy Cuddy
Do you dare to power pose? Renowned Harvard Business School Professor Amy Cuddy shared cutting-edge science that will help us all be our boldest, truest selves. Amy has galvanized over 30 million people with her inspiring Ted talk, and last night she offered some key insights from her book Presence.
Private Art Viewing at Metro Pictures Gallery
IVY Art Night at Metro Pictures Gallery celebrated photographer Trevor Paglen’s exhibit with cocktails and a great group of members.
