LOS ANGELES, Oct. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Actress Kristen Bell, Global Advocate for the United Nations Women's Peace and Humanitarian Fund (WPHF), was honored with the Vision for Peace Award at a star-studded gala on Saturday. Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor Ted Danson presented the award.

The event featured presentations by Sharon Stone, with a performance by Sara Bareilles. Kirby emceed the evening, which also included presentation of the Commitment to Gender Equality Award to Starbucks.

Bell highlighted the urgency, stating that "Less than 1% of global funding goes to women's organizations in countries experiencing crises or conflicts. That's unacceptable. WPHF is changing that."

Also featured at the event were two women leaders working on the front lines to build peace and respond to crises in their communities: Hajer Sharief from Libya and Horia Mosadiq from Afghanistan.

The gala was hosted by Bell, Wallis Annenberg, Ellen DeGeneres, Sean Hayes, and Dawn Ostroff, and was supported by Crèmily, Horizon, Activision|Blizzard, Disney, Netflix, Good|Upworthy, BoldHaus, Lafayette 148, and Spindrift.
