Empowering women to be confident in their internal and external beauty, health and everyday lives.

    The Second Annual Fearlessly SHE Summit is the premier event for go gett(h)ers, influenc(h)ers, game chang(h)ers and entrepren(h)ers. This exclusive weekend experience by The Strength of SHE is a two-day conference of empowerment for women of color. Each year, we focus on a topic that women can relate to and improve upon in their personal and professional lives, in order to reach a new level of success, growth and confidence.


    Our 2018 conference theme is "GRIND & FLOURISH" because we believe behind every glow up is a hardworking woman demolishing her goals. This year's attendees the opportunity to tackle every day obstacles and gain the tools they need to elevate their lives.

    Kristin Sutton| Workshop Host

    Kristin Sutton, founder of Debt Free Black Girl, is a money therapist that empowers fly young women to change the way they think about money so they can save more, spend less and pay off debt. As a licensed therapist, her daily mission is to uncover and eliminate the mental roadblocks that hinder people from achieving their goals and living the life of their dreams. Four years ago, she was dead broke, battling with depression, 40 pounds overweight, swimming in debt and on the verge of homelessness. After seeking therapy, she shifted her mindset completely and as a result, she went from having overdue bills and ducking and dodging phone calls to paying off over $10K in debt in just a matter of months while on a struggle bus salary. Kristin currently teaches and coaches clients in her Be Debt Free program where she helps them regain confidence in themselves to take control over their finances.


    We have an exciting lineup of fireside chats, workshops and tribe networking!
