Message from our Status of Women Chair:
Many thanks to the #SMC of #TLOD for entrusting me and my amazing committee to launch 'Igniting Innovative Inspirations', a women's empowerment event. We nailed it by having the right speakers - Yvette Turner, Pamela Wilkerson, Gwendolyn 'Renee' Williams White, Wynne Briscoe, Shannon Jordan and Elveta Gibson. They covered the Job Market, Financial Literacy, How to Become an Entrepreneur and Health and Wellness. Lady Lauren closed us ou...t with a fun fashion show of what and what not to wear while conducting business.
Congratulations are in order to our two Shark Tank award winners - Elena Reed and Jahaira Dixon.
Many thanks to our sponsors - Charles County Public Library, College of Southern Maryland, Diedra Alexander - Realtor with Long and Foster, Pinnacle Counseling and Consulting Group, Prince George's County of the NCNW, Charles County Chapter of NAACP, Tri County Council Job Source, the Capital B Company, and Nikki and Marty with the Hair Cutter in Brandywine. Because of their generosity and in-kind donations, we offered this event to our amazing guests at no cost!!
