Back for a third year and in a brand new city, the Blavity-backed 21Ninety women’s lifestyle vertical hosts has set sights on bringing its “EmpowerHer” Conference, now called “Summit21,” to the Atlanta Convention Center at AmericasMart in downtown Atlanta.
The two-day event, scheduled June 8-9, will provide women with the “opportunities to be hands-on with cultivating experiences to live their best lives personally and professionally.”
“Our goal is to provide our community with life-changing moments, networks and the tools to create the life they want,” explained Blavity Inc. CEO Morgan DeBaun.
The conference has always incorporated notable women and this year’s summit is no less spectacular. Attendees can look forward to hearing words of wisdom from a bevy of powerful women speakers, including Sevyn Streeter, Myleik Teele, Sarah Jakes Roberts, Symone Sanders, as well as the conference’s keynote speaker, Angela Rye.
As a part of the summit’s rebranding, this year attendants have the option of selecting from different three learning tracts, including beauty & health, impact, and money. Each of the themed tracts will answer relevant and crucial questions for inquisitive and driven women of color.
Through fireside chats, masterclasses, and one on one opportunities, women will be able to create a community amongst their peers and changemakers in their respective industries and areas of passion.
21Ninety, one of many Blavity’s media brands, has a mission to provide beauty, career, and lifestyle tips and resources for young black women worldwide. The site was once called Blavity Lifestyle.
