This past Thursday, in partnership with our friends at Shutterstock and Miss Jessie's, The Memo hosted its first annual Women of Resilience Awards in the Empire State Building. It was a great night, where we honored three amazing women -- Natalie Cofield, Founder and CEO of Walker's Legacy, Tanya Selvaratnam, writer, actor, producer, and activist, and Miko Branch, the Co-Founder and CEO of Miss Jessie's.

These women encouraged, inspired, and motivated us. They are business owners, speakers, authors, producers, award winners, and activists, and we were proud to have a little of their magic sprinkled on us.

In case you missed it, here are some of our favorite photos from the event:
