For the first time, the two publications have united on a joint cover for their November digital issues.
The publications say they are united through their core passion for championing female pioneers, activists and game changers. An award-winning singer-songwriter, actress, producer, best-selling author, entrepreneur, and a powerful force in the world of activism, Alicia Keys was the obvious choice to feature for this exclusive joint cover, say the publishers.
For Marie Claire UK, Alicia Keys was chosen as the face of their annual Future Shapers Awards and awarded a top Icon Award for her lifelong activism and role inspiring women towards success on their own terms. The Marie Claire Future Shapers Awards honour grass-roots campaigners, innovators, and activists who are agents of change.
For Marie Claire US, Alicia Keys was the keynote speaker at their fifth annual Power Trip. An exclusive, invite-only event that brings together 75 entrepreneurial women to cultivate a community who can inspire, create, and collaborate in an impactful way.
Andrea Thompson, Editor-in-Chief for Marie Claire UK says, “Alicia Keys is a global icon, trailblazer and activist who resonates with Marie Claire audiences across both markets. It's wonderful to be able to work together to spotlight such a powerful female role model.”
Sally Holmes, Editor-in-Chief of Marie Claire US added, “We are excited to work with our UK counterparts to champion successful women and celebrate strong female leadership.”
The collaboration was made possible by Future Plc, the owner of Marie Claire UK and Marie Claire US. The alliance strengthens Future’s commitment to evolving its footprint in the women’s lifestyle space and celebrates its flagship lifestyle brands that continue to champion game-changing women who are shaping the future, says Future plc.
