More than 250 women attended a special Minnesota women’s event, “Overcoming Fear Through Courage,” Nov. 12 at the Metropolitan Ballroom in Golden Valley.

Guest speakers included Megan Tamte, cofounder and CEO of the clothing retailer Evereve (formerly Hot Mama) and Vicki Escarra, CEO of a global nonprofit Opportunity International.

“Breathe Iribagiza,” a story of a Rwandan genocide survivor and expert artisan, was shown.

The event united female executives, business leaders and activists.
