“During the conference, attendees will learn from and pay tribute to corporate and community power brokers,” said Dr. Smith. “We are bringing forth those individuals whose commitment and leadership are making a difference in work places, communities and the health and wealth of women of color.”
Through keynote speeches, panel discussions and “conversations” with Spelman President Beverly Daniel Tatum, Ph.D., attendees will gain unique insight and leave with practical solutions to help them:
• Incorporate the cornerstones of wealth building
• Blaze a trail for others through philanthropic endeavors
• Understand the impact of health on wealth
• Leverage the power of the media to grow wealth
Held on the first night of the conference, the Legacy of Leadership Awards Dinner is an elegant evening of memorable entertainment, outstanding speakers and inspiring stories of leadership. This year, remarkable women who exemplify strategic leadership and embrace the importance of not only building successful careers, but also understanding the power of giving back are being honored. Among the honorees are Ari Parker and Smith, as well as other local and national leaders in various fields.
The Ninth Annual Spelman College Leadership and Women of Color Conference will begin at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15, 2013, at the Georgia International Convention Center. For more details and to register, visit http://www.spelmanwomenofcolorconf.com.
