Star Jones with Robin Roberts and Matt Proman


Star Jones and Robin Roberts were among the leading female role models sharing their motivational life stories with a jam-packed room filled with 1200 women at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Times Square during the fourth annual National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) Networking Summit.
 Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts (right) accepted the first ever ICON award (a Baume & Mercier watch) to a standing ovation for her fearless battle against cancer- not once but twice. Ms. Roberts talked about facing challenges in life and "...knowing what your 'something' is... When you are going through a burden, think of it as wings that will help lift you through it." 

Star Jones (left) announced the formation of the NAPW Foundation, which will make a difference in the lives of women and girls through service, sisterhood and self-help. Some of the philanthropic partners include, the American Heart Association, Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), Dress for Success and Girls, Inc. 

Jones reminded the audience that sometimes you don't know your purpose until you are walking in it, as she learned after open-heart surgery, and later becoming the National Volunteer for the American Heart Association.
