Diane von Furstenberg empowers women not only through fashion, but also philanthropy and mentorship.

Since her rise to fashion royalty in the 1970s, Diane Von Furstenberg has committed to amplifying the voices of communities of women and supporting the women leading the fight.


As a philanthropist, Diane serves on the board of Vital Voices, a non-governmental organization that supports female leaders and entrepreneurs around the world.The DVF Awards were created in 2010 by Diane von Furstenberg and The Diller-von Furstenberg Family Foundation to recognize and support extraordinary women who are dedicated to transforming the lives of other women; women who have had the courage to fight, the power to survive and the leadership to inspire.


Each year, five honorees are celebrated at The DVF Awards Ceremony at the United Nations in New York City, as part of The Women in the World Conference. Past honorees include Gloria Steinem, Veronika Scott, Ingrid Betancourt, Dr. Sunitha Krishnan, Oprah Winfrey, Layli Miller-Muro, and Hillary Clinton.
