April 10th 2010 was the 1st Annual Women Empowerment Day Conference.
The whole day was about female and the power that we do have and uplifting conferences and seminar hosted by the WEST organization. It was held at the CCNY on April 10th 2010, the day started with health breakfast. Platter of fruits, bagels, orange juice, coffee and tea.
We then had the first conference with Moderator, Founder and CEO.
Throughout the day, there was different panels with exiting and motivated panelists with different topics such as: Women 101, Women and Health, Education and Professional Development, Entrepreneurship and Managing Your Money etc.
We had a wonderful healthy lunch and in the afternoon, a special Keynote with celebrity Ms Terrie M. Williams, PR for celebrities like Mary J. Blige, Puff Daddy, Eddie Murphy, to name very few… She spoke about her story in the entertainment industry, her book “Black Pain: It Just Looks Like We’re Not Hurting”, which tells her story with depression that she had to face while working in the entertainment industry and it is to let us know that the “Blacks” also can suffer from depression.
At the End there was Networking and different exhibitions in the Ballroom.
My suggestion for next year: WEST will need a bigger place AND why not the whole weekend??
I had a wonderful and uplifting time. Did I mention that it was FREE to register?
