The 33rd Gloria Awards

A Salute to Women of Vision

Many lessons were learned throughout the last year and one of the most resounding takeaways is the importance of taking care of mind, body and soul to foster wellness. We are resilient and on May 20, 2021, at the Ms. Foundation for Women’s 33rd Gloria Awards: A Salute to Women of Vision, we’ll release the energy that has sustained generations of women, girls, transgender and non-binary people through the most challenging times with our theme, JOY UNMUTED.

Joy is an act of resistance and through jubilant music, inspirational messages and powerful moments of sisterhood, the Ms. Foundation will salute trail-blazing honorees and visionary women, and raise critical funds for our pioneering grantee partners who are creating safe, just and bright futures for all.

Join us at our virtual gala to help celebrate and build women’s power across the country, unleash your optimism, and crank up the volume on your joy!
