With so many options out there (and probably a limited budget for attending them all), choosing which conferences to devote your time to can be challenging.
Black women are coming for everything they said we couldn’t have in 2019.
So if you’ve been wanting to level up in your career, your business or even your professional development—now is the time. The best part? There are plenty of conferences specifically geared towards Black women to help you do so.
There’s nothing like being in a room full of people that look like and are on the same grind as you, while listening to inspiring keynotes, rubbing elbows with other professionals, and then walking away with the tools you need to survive and thrive as a Black woman in business.
But with so many options out there (and probably a limited budget for attending them all), choosing which conferences to devote your time to can be challenging. Not sure where to start? Here are a few that will help you level up in 2019.
Date: February 21 – February 24, 2019
Location: New Orleans, LA
The Power Rising Summit provides a space for Black women to turn their power into action and create an actionable agenda. Now’s the time to rise up — against injustice, bigotry and any obstacle that stands in the way of our goals. The Summit is organized around five key pillars of activism and engagement: Business & Economic Empowerment; Culture, Community, and Society; Education, Technology, and Innovation; Health & Wellness; and Political Empowerment. So prepare to level up in each of these pillars.
Black Women Talk Tech
Date: February 27 – March 1, 2019
Location: New York, NY
Black Women Talk Tech’s 3rd annual Roadmap to Billions 2019 Conference is an annual tech conference created exclusively by Black women founders for Black female founders. It’s no surprise that Black women in tech are the least funded and supported. So for women who are trying to build billion dollar companies (heck, even million dollar), this conference creates an environment to foster deep connections and create real funding opportunities.
