Self Care over Everything: #EmpowerHER17 Day 1

Blavity continues to introduce their newest brand, 21Ninety, in super exciting ways; this time with the second installment of their signature event, EmpowerHER. This year, Chicago makes for a perfect backdrop for the two-day conference. Beautiful women came together from near and far (we’re talking LA, DC, NYC, Texas and beyond) in the name of entrepreneurship and sisterhood, ready to take in all the knowledge the weekend’s featured guests are willing to give.

Friday definitely set the tone for an exciting and energetic experience. The cool and calm ambiance set participants at ease, allowing conversations to flow effortlessly. BlackGirlPodcast’s Gia Peppers made the perfect emcee for the night and of course Blavity founder Morgan Debaun cemented her place as everyone’s entrepreneurial girl crush when she took the stage to share why 21Ninety is her dream for today’s millennial woman of color.

Taking in the night’s events: a fireside chat with TravelNoire‘s Zim Ugochukwu and a young creators panel featuring Ronnie Dickerson Stewart of DigitasLBi, Nickecia Alder of Black Girl Fly Mag, Autumn Merritt of Sir & Madame, and Brienna LaCoste, the overarching theme was undoubtably self care.

All featured guests, girl bosses in their own right, dished on how they’re able to maintain their sanity and peace through out it all while dropping gems about productivity, team building and more. Check out what we were able to catch while preparing yourself for even more #BlackGirlMagic tomorrow.

The premier digital lifestyle platform for millennial entrepreneurial women of color. Where BUSINESS, BEING & BEAUTY collide!
