Women’s Empowerment weekend kicks off with Empowerment Friday on April 15 from 11am – 4pm at the Hilton Garden Inn Raleigh Crabtree Valley.
Join us as we kick-off Women’s Empowerment 2016 with Empowerment Friday. This newly added feature to Women’s Empowerment weekend will give all event attendees an opportunity to participate in intimate sessions and interactive workshops designed to help take their education, life and career to the next level. This event is free and open to the public.
Exposure and opportunity are two very critical keys to success. We want to expose everyone, especially college students, to organizations, people and information needed to help them excel.
Empowerment Friday is designed to bridge the gap of exposure and opportunity! You can register online now by clicking on the Women’s Empowerment tab at the top of our station’s websites.
