SUMMIT21 Launches As 21Ninety’s Signature Black Girl Summit With Keynote Speaker, Angela Rye

Blavity Inc.’s Third Annual EmpowerHer Conference is now Summit21 supporting 21Ninety’s mission to encourage women to live their best lives

Blavity Inc. rebranded its annual women’s conference to Summit21, an IRL experience to support the thriving digital community on 21Ninety. This 2-day culminating experience guides attendees to their greatest vision for their lives and provides actionable steps towards making that a reality. Through engaging masterclasses and fireside chats, Summit21 provides hands-on experience with the brightest and most inspiring leaders and innovators in our community.

2018’s Summit21 will consist of three major themes:
● IMPACT: From Congress, to the voting booth, we have made their voices heard. Summit21’s Social Impact track answers the relevant and crucial questions, “What now?” and “How can I truly make a change?”

● MONEY:Black women are the fastest growing group of business owners and entrepreneurs in America. Our money track gives first hand advice and strategies from women who have and continue to crash through the glass ceiling through workshops, masterclasses and fireside chats.

● BEAUTY & HEALTH: There are more products being designed for black women and by black women, and it’s time for women of color to grow as stakeholders. Our Beauty & Health track explores how to engage in the beauty industry, stay healthy while growing our influence and finances.

“We are calling on the brightest and most daring leaders in our community to share their journeys, failures, successes, and favorite boss-up tips,” says Sabine Quetant, Summit21’s Director of Programming. “These women have crashed through the glass ceiling in so many ways and are shining the light for other women to reach their greatest dreams.”

Featured guests include political commentator and CEO of IMPACT Strategies, Angela Rye, author, Sarah Jakes Roberts, CEO and Founder of Curlbox, Myliek Teele, Symone Sanders, Star of HBO’s Insecure, Jay Ellis, Singer/Songwriter, Sevyn Streeter, Karen Civil, Author and Comedian, Franchesca Ramsey, and “Dear, White People” star, Ashley Blaine Featherson, along with many other featured guests and influencers.

Summit21 2018 will take place in the heart of Downtown Atlanta, June 8th – 9th at the Atlanta Convention Center at America’s Mart and is brought to you in partnership with American Airlines and Hilton Hotels.
“We created Summit21 to create a space for young black women to come together and connect with each other. Our goal is to provide our community with life changing moments, networks and the tools to create the life they want.” says Blavity Inc. CEO, Morgan DeBaun.
