Here's how to sip, see art and be spirited about inclusion.

Bacardi Brings Together Trailblazers for Empowerment and Inclusivity
Miami-based spirits company Bacardi held it’s 5th annual Spirit Forward Summit, which brought together current and future female change-makers for a day of speeches, panels and even a few activities aimed to empower and promote inclusivity. This year’s theme, “Empowered To Be You,” taught individuals across industries how to navigate conversations about social and economic injustices, manage home and careers during lockdowns, and stay positive and mentally healthy through it all. As female leaders continue to break down barriers in the face of adversity, Bacardi has once again given them a platform to share their voice.
At least 700 female and male trailblazers attended including women’s culture consultant Cyndie Spiegel, Former Miss USA and captain in the United States Army Reserve Deshauna Barber, American stylist and fashion designer Misa Hylton and Jess Huang, co-author of the McKinsey Women in the Workplace Study.
PAMM is Open
After months of planning, Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is reopening to the public this week! After an exclusive member’s preview days ago that welcomed first responders and healthcare professionals, the museum is ready to showcase it’s world-renown collections. However to follow social distancing guidelines and manage gallery capacity, members and visitors must reserve timed tickets online ahead of their visits.
Pérez Art Museum Miami will look and operate a little differently than what you may be used to. For starters, PAMM has implemented new hours of operation and safety precautions, including one-way paths and hand-sanitizing stations. What’s more, the first hour of daily ticket slots are reserved for guests who are senior and or immunocompromised. Face masks covering the mouth and nose are required for all visitors and staff.
