The Women Empowerment sisSTAR Summit is an extended platform of the Annual Women Empowerment Event featuring keynote conversations, panels, workshops, performances, opportunities to network with other women-owned business and professionals, and more! This influential experience will bring together and celebrate the diverse voices and insights of women on the rise and on the grind. Among the women-led lineup are Anu Prestonia (Anu Essentials and Khamit Kinks), Amelia Moore (Buzz Builder Consulting), Dr. Rhonda Cambridge-Phillip (Food Is Your Medicine), Robin Sokoloff (Town Stages and Sokoloff Arts), Jeanne Marie Boes (Artist), Dr. Maha Nasrallah-Babenko (Bond Better), and Raquel Olmo (Play4Promise).
The Women Empowerment sisSTAR Summit is followed by the 7th Annual Women Empowerment Event that will feature an all-male panel for the first time in the event’s history. This year’s panelists include Patrick L. Riley (Journalist and Author of That’s What Friends Are For: On The Women Who Inspired Me), Smax Music (Artist and Entrepreneur), and Charlie A. Vargas (Attorney and Professor). The annual event is aimed at raising awareness in the women empowerment movement. “This event is for anyone ready to start conversations, network, and share ideas and stories about how empowerment can motivate and ignite positive change in women, individually and collectively, to continue to strengthen our mark and significance in society,” says MelimeL, Creative Artist and Owner of MelimeL Digital Art Design.
