Critically acclaimed as the best of its genre for its in-depth approach to issues of contemporary life, The Quest series of specials remains the reference for its leading role in pioneering spiritual broadcast programming, consistently capturing top ratings and successfully raising millions of dollars for PBS across the United States, where it reached 90 million households through syndication. At its peak, The Quest was the top-selling off-air video on numerous networks. It won awards for Best Motivational TV Program year after year.

Lili Fournier dedicated herself to using the power of the media to effect personal and societal transformation. She is passionately committed to helping people achieve their highest potential. She is widely credited with playing a leading role in pioneering spirituality on the airwaves across America, when the mind/body/spirit connection was anything but mainstream.
When the leading agency Chiat Day (Apple’s Think Different Campaign) did its vanguard study on Mega Trends in America they concluded it was SPIRITUALITY and chose the Quest, published by Simon & Schuster, as the best product on the market.
After producing the award-winning three one-hour Women of Wisdom and Power specials, Lili became a passionate advocate for the empowerment and advancement of women globally. It was during the making of this series that she discovered that it is was the severe subjugation of women in many parts of the world that kept poverty in place. An inveterate adventurer, she had traveled to over 80 countries around the world and was amazed that she hadn’t learned this first hand.
Today, Lili Fournier is channeling her legendary energy into the cause of the 21st century and her personal passion: accelerating the education and empowerment of women and girls around the world. To help realize the dream for women and girls, she has worked for years to garner the support for WOMEN’S DAY LIVE, a multi-year-global social action humanitarian campaign which will culminate in a multi-venue benefit concert to celebrate more than a century of progress for the women of the world on International Women’s Day, March 11, 2017.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Leah Tutu are Honorary Patrons of WOMEN’S DAY LIVE. At the personal invitation of President Bill Clinton, WDL became a Clinton Global Initiative in 2006. It’s time for change. It’s time for action. Women’s Day Live is poised to launch on March 11, 2017.
