(ST. HELENA, CALIFORNIA – OCTOBER 1, 2018) –Vintner Kathryn Hall, owner of one of the leading luxury Cabernet Sauvignon brands in the world, HALL Wines, has announced details for a unique women’s roundtable event to be held at HALL St. Helena on Friday, November 9, 2018. The High-Powered High Heel’s-titled discussion includes a panel of successful women and risk-takers who will share their stories of the rewards and challenges in their respective careers, and how they have shattered ceilings to help pave the way for their individual successes. The conversation brings together women from a range of industries and backgrounds who will discuss how they’ve bridged various gaps throughout their careers, and collectively share industry insight as they all look ahead to the future.

“The roster of women involved in the panel have all focused throughout their careers on consistently creating new foundations, new connections, and new conversations,” says Vintner and former United States Ambassador to Austria, Kathryn Walt Hall. “They are in different industries, but the discourse is similar in that the panel members embrace cultural changes and effectively express their individual voices. We look forward to an exciting afternoon as they share their experiences and challenges with each other and with our guests.”

The conversation will be moderated by Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Mira Sorvino who will lead the panel discussion that includes Actress Annie Starke, Technical Emmy Award winner LeShelle May, Founder and CEO of leading luxury fashion brand Maris Collective, Lee Ann Sauter, and Vintner Kathryn Walt Hall. Sorvino will lead the discussion to include topics related to male dominated industries and the shattered ceiling concept, the current political climate, share insight from each about helping bridge cultural gaps in the workplace, and more. Post the 60-minute discussion, guests in attendance will be allowed to ask questions directly to the panelists. The conversation aims to share current perspective from powerful female leaders and to comment on female empowerment throughout the course of their careers – and what lies ahead for each.
