The Empowerment Social is happening in less than 2 weeks! Every day that I work towards putting this event together, I realize how important this event is to my community. Just in case you haven’t seen all of my social media posts – check out the 5 reasons why you should attend The Empowerment Social.
1. You’re able to mix a party and personal + professional development.
There are parties. And there are networking events. There are professional conferences. And there are day parties. But rarely do these different types of events mix and mingle… until The Empowerment Social.
This event allows attendees to party, network, and receive valuable information from experts in career development, fitness, personal development, and entrepreneurship. It’s an experience that you can bring your full self to – truly a personal and professional development experience.
2. Our sponsors want to help you do more in your career.
We have sponsors who are looking to support and minority professionals in a fun environment. They understand that millennials like to have fun, but we are also passionate about growing in our careers.
National Sales Network of New York and New Jersey is an organization that promotes the personal and professional development of individuals interested in a career in sales. I’ve been attending their events for the past two years and love how they mix networking with informational panels, conferences, and events.
Northwestern Mutual is all about helping you live the life you want and the life you never thought you could. It’s not just about the insurance part. It’s about making sure you have your lifestyle completely covered. Northwestern Mutual is the type of company that you need to connect with no matter what stage of your life and career that you’re in. Making sure that you are able to get to where you want in your life is important and Northwest Mutual will help you do just that.
Additionally, this year we have Effen Vodka serving as our open bar sponsor for this year’s social! We will have custom, signature cocktails for all attendees. And On The Trak Photo & Media will be snapping pictures and video throughout the event. They specialize in event photography so they’ll be sure to catch moments when everyone is looking their best!
3. The speakers are ready to empower you to do more, be more, and achieve more – in quick, actionable talks.
Studies show that we all have super short attention spans, so I’ve asked this years speakers to create 15-20 minute empowerment talks that give you something actionable to do after the event.
I’ve attended SO many personal and professional development events over the past few years. I hate the feeling of being inspired, but not knowing exactly what to do when I get home. Knowing this, my goal is to make sure that everyone leaves with the motivation and information to take a step towards their goals immediately following this event.
Not only that, but there is a Q&A panel at the end! So often you go to these types of events and get a bunch of information but never get the chance to ask questions. There aren’t any pre-planned questions so you’ll get to ask whatever you want to help your personal and professional growth.
4. You’ll be in the room with professionals like YOU.
This is the type of event that attracts a certain type of audience. Not to say that people are excluded – but it takes a special type of professional to value personal and professional development AND a day party.
In my professional career, it’s rare that you can walk into a room and really be encouraged, celebrated, and valued for being yourself. The person who loves a little trap music, but still knows how to navigate through a mid-level career interview. That’s what this event is all about. Networking and collaborating in an environment that is primed for fun and success. It’s almost guaranteed that you’ll be able to meet with other professionals who have similar interests and can help you excel in your career. And who have listened to the new Cardi B.
5. The Empowerment Social was a HUGE hit last year
People are still talking about last year’s event. From the speakers to the sponsors, to the vendors, people are still raving about how much they loved The Empowerment Social. This year’s event is going to be bigger and better than last year and I’d hate for you to miss it.
Our speakers will empower you in personal and professional development. You’ll be able to shop from some amazing vendors. Tickets are only $50 and if you bring a friend, you get a discount. Get your tickets before they sell out!
You’ve still got time to grab your tickets! I really hope to see you there!
