ON MARCH 9-12 HUNDREDS OF EXECUTIVES WILL gather at the Hilton Diplomat Resort & Spa in Hollywood, Florida, for four days of professional empowerment at the Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit.
Hosted by ADR the Summit features executive leadership sessions inspiring attendees to know their worth, own their truth, and embrace their power. Attendees will learn to lead like a woman and win in a man's world; they'll master corporate politics; they'll realize the importance of sponsorship as critical leverage into the C-suite; and they'll discover how their unique stories give them power. Additionally, they'll hear from top-tier executives, including BET Networks CEO Debra Lee, Carnival Corp. CEO Arnold Donald, AT&T Chief Diversity Officer Cynthia Marshall, Estee Lauder Chief Financial Officer Tracey Travis, and NBA Chief Marketing Officer Pam El.
That's just the tip of the iceberg. One-on-one executive coaching sessions on finances, style, and success strategies are available for women looking to sharpen their winning edge. Singer, actor, and author Vanessa L Williams will be honored with a Legacy Award along with golf pioneer Renee Rowell and founder of the Thurgood Marshal College Fund, N. Joyce Payne, Ph.D.. Moreover, after days of intense focus on skills building, attendees will put on their red dresses and slip on their high heels as they groove along with R&B legend Johnny Gill.
