• FEARLESSLY SHE SUMMIT

  • ABOUT THE SUMMIT

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

    The First Annual Fearlessly SHE Summit was created by The Strength of SHE to be a full-day of empowerment for women of color. Each year, we will 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 that they haven't imagined before.

     

    On Saturday, July 8, join us as we focus on beauty positivity and fearless confidence. This is your opportunity to view your beauty differently, increase your self-value and become more confident in who you are now and who you will be later!

     

    This mini conference will feature two panel discussions based around our theme of beauty positivity and fearless confidence! We will also have four interactive workshops, a power lunch for you to network/mingle and local vendors for you to shop with!
