Nicole Richie, the Creative Director of House of Harlow 1960, a Hollywood celebrity, and social media darling, but recently she’s added female empowerer to that list of credentials.
Richie hosted her second annual Pearl xChange at The London in West Hollywood, gathering a group of successful professional women, including her sister in-law, Cameron Diaz to share their stories and journeys with an audience.
Why did Richie, a 35-year-old successful businesswoman and busy mother want to add something else to her résumé? “To put it simply, the importance of collaboration,” she told PEOPLE at the event. “With millennials and just the way that the world is working, women are shaping who they are, what they want to become, at an earlier age, earlier and earlier.”
“They’re all so capable of understanding with that comes the responsibility of understanding the importance of being open and vulnerable with other women around you to surround yourself with people who have strengths where you have weaknesses, and to not look at that as something intimidating, but as something we need to celebrate and collaborate on,” she continued.
