Coinciding with International Women’s Day (March 8) and Women’s History Month, the Tory Burch Foundation is launching a new campaign, #EmbraceAmbition, to empower women across the globe.

The concept was inspired by Tory Burch’s personal experience being a female entrepreneur—it aims to address the negative stereotypes that ambitious women face in comparison to that of ambitious men.

To kick off the new initiative, the designer enlisted an all-star cast of influential women (and men) to appear in a new PSA. Julianne Moore, Kerry Washington, Reese Witherspoon, Yara Shahidi, Gwyneth Paltrow, Diane Kruger, Gabby Douglas, Sheryl Sandberg, Melinda Gates, and of course Tory Burch herself, are amongst those featured in the new video.

 In the video, the cast of actresses, entrepreneurs and more wear T-shirts with phrases like “Founder,” “Powerful,” “Strong,” “Visionary” and naturally, “Ambitious” while pledging to help make a change for women.
