Fueling Innovation, Toyota Awards Grants To Mothers Of Invention At Newsweek & The Daily Beast's Fourth Annual Women In The World Summit

NEW YORK, April 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovation, creativity and courage are being rewarded at the fourth annual Women in the World Summit.  Three Toyota Driving Solutions grants of $50,000 each were pledged today by Toyota for women selected as "Mothers of Invention" at the Summit.  The $150,000 in grants were awarded to the recipients who are addressing some of today's most pressing global problems with ingenuity. Recipients include Kativa M. Shukla, founder and CEO of Fenugreen; Caitria O' Neill and Morgan O' Neill, co-founders and chief executives of Recovers.org; and Sejal Hathi and Tara Roberts, co-founders of girltank.

"It's an honor to return as a sponsor of the Women in the World Summit," said Julie Hamp, Chief Communications Officer for Toyota in North America, and summit co-presenter. "Toyota is proud to demonstrate its ongoing commitment to women by honoring the Mothers of Invention – courageous and innovative leaders who are making a difference in their communities and the world."

Toyota awarded the Mothers of Invention honorees with $50,000 grants to recognize the recipients' creativity, drive and determination in fostering social good while supporting their projects that impact positive change.  Toyota also surprised the Mothers of Invention with an additional $15,000 grant for each of the women to "pay-it-forward" to another innovative organization or cause of her choice.  The "pay-it-forward" grants were presented so that honorees could help a budding Mother of Invention and continue to share good ideas and make great things happen in the future.

The Summit, hosted by Newsweek & The Daily Beast Editor-in-Chief Tina Brown, of which Toyota is the presenting sponsor, was held at the David H. Koch Theater at New York's Lincoln Center and featured two days of programming and panels aimed at addressing urgent issues facing girls and women worldwide. This year's participants included Meryl Streep, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Tina Brown, Dr. Hawa Abdi, Tererai Trent, Ambassador Susan E. Rice, Eva Longoria, Michaela DePrince, Ambassador Melanne Verveer, Diane von Furstenberg, Anne Finucane, America Ferrera, Tom Hanks, Lesley Stahl, Cynthia McFadden, Patricia Amira and many others.
