Braun Watches is sponsoring the Girls I Rate summer event that celebrates women and change.
The London event, described as a summer soirée, will be attended by the global chart-topping Emeli Sandé; winner of the NME Outstanding Contribution to Music Award, Wiley and Brit Award Winner Lily Allen.
Founded in 2016 by Carla Marie Williams, Girls I Rate is a movement to champion women across the arts, giving them a platform to express themselves, share experiences and develop up-and-coming talent. Williams, whose credits include Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears and Beyoncé, is an inspiring voice for change and an advocate for equality within the creative industries.
The fundraiser will bring together a bevy of A-list guests committed to raising funds to drive the movement forward and creating further opportunities for women.
Emeli Sandé comments: “It saddens me to see the blatant gender imbalance within the music industry, particularly in executive positions and music production. The skills and talent are not missing, I believe it’s caused by a lack of confidence and support. I want to be the best example I can be to women and to give them the courage and hopefully the inspiration to blaze bright and kick down all the doors that have been unfairly closed to them over the years.”
Braun Watches, represented by Zeon in the UK, are supporters of the creative arts. Last year the brand sponsored the London Design Festival.
