Guys! Today we are officially two months away from BrownGirlsLove POWER Day! For those of you who have been following me for a while now, you know that Power Day is an event I decided to produce starting back in 2016 based on my desire to empower, educate and inspire women like you at the beginning of the year.
Not only is it an opportunity for me to meet, greet and love on all of you in person but it’s also a chance for me to introduce you all to women who inspire me personally and who will motivate you to get out of your chair and DO something. I’m so proud to announce that our 2018 Power Day event is being presented by Toyota USA!
The first weeks of every year are truly critical. They set the tone for your entire year, and that’s the critical time when you set intentions and make an action plan for all you want to accomplish. It’s for this exact reason that I made sure Power Day takes place during the first weekend of the year. It’s an opportunity to explore all your hopes and dreams and hear from women just like you who have made their own dreams come true.
Toyota, who was our Presenting Sponsor for 2017, is back with bigger and better plans to blow your mind at Power Day. I won’t reveal any of their surprises, but know that if you’re in attendance with us this January – you’re in for a special treat. You may recall their #LetsGoPlaces 360 photobooth last year, which was SO much fun. They are such an amazing brand for committing to the empowerment and inspiration of young black women. I’m so proud to have them as a partner for this event.
So here’s what you can expect in 2018:
- Really Dope Panelists – You know I’m always looking for the brightest and baddest brown girls to bring you expertise, empowerment and inspiration at Power Day. The panelists this year are a combination of women from our very own BGL community as well as heavy-hitters in the digital space who have claimed a real stake in their industries of choice.
- Amazing Sponsors & Vendors – I can’t reveal all the secrets but expect to have a TON of fun during our breaks and during lunch hour at Power Day because the sponsors and vendors are going to give you so much to do. From photobooths to live demo’s and can’t-resist products, you won’t want to miss it.
- Swag Bags on 100! Our sponsors are not playing this year. Everyone will get a FREE BrownGirlsLove tote bag filled with swag from our sponsors. Trust, you won’t have to buy any beauty products for at least a few months.
- The Best Networking, Ever. Issa Rae did an interview earlier this year where she talked about the importance of networking “across” and not up. Basically, the people you should be trying to get to know are the people on the same level as you who are just working hard, trying to make it. Why? Because they make the best partners to GROW with. I loved that advice and it’s so true. Those are exactly the types of connections you’ll make at Power Day 2018.
