On Saturday, September 6th, City Incite and She’s In Color Women Empowerment Campaign will join forces to host, “Perspective,” a half-day women’s conference designed to unite women for conversation on relevant topics that cater to women from all walks of life. The conference will feature experts in the fields of branding, style, leadership, philanthropy and more. The event will also serve as a charitable initiative for a very deserving not-for-profit organization.
City Incite is a non-profit organization that incites people from all walks of life to actively work together to help enrich the lives of others. City Incite implements fundamental programming, and creates engaging events that spark an open dialogue and raise awareness about various social and economic inequalities in order to organically create positive changes in the world. Our innovative programming is tilted “Business Engineering” for inner city youth. In programming we teach students the fundamentals needed to think like, act like, and become entrepreneurs, good citizens, and community leaders.
She’s In Color (SIC) is a multicultural women empowerment campaign designed as a call for women of all cultures, ages, backgrounds and perspectives to embrace their individuality and purpose. She’s In Color exists to improve the quality of life for women, equipping them with inspiration, motivation, knowledge and resources for their journey.
Created by Aaja Corinne Carr, founder of Aaja Corinne The Brand, this movement works to dispel the negative images of women in media today by highlighting women of substance and creating a platform for them to shine within our communities. She’s In Color encourages women to inspire through sharing, influence by doing good and impact by paying it forward through social events, chats, workshops, panel discussions, community service projects, as well as a blog and the personal manifestos of real women blended with vibrant photography.
