2024 EmpowerHer Brunch

We are thrilled to report that the Virginia Black Chamber EmpowerHer Women's Brunch was a resounding success!

The Virginia Black Chamber of Commerce is proud to reflect on the triumphant success of our inaugural EmpowerHer Women's Brunch. This empowering event was a vibrant gathering of dynamic women from diverse sectors, all united with the common purpose of uplifting and championing black businesses. The day was filled with enlightening discussions, impactful networking, and an atmosphere brimming with positivity and ambition.

We were honored to have Quinn Conyers as our keynote speaker. Quinn, a compelling voice in the business world, captivated us all with her insights and experiences. She shared her journey, offering invaluable advice and strategies that left us all inspired and ready to take on the world. Her words resonated deeply, reminding us of our potential and the power we possess in our voices to shape our futures.

Our other distinguished speakers, Nicole Cole and Shanel Evans, further enriched the day. Nicole Cole, an expert in Financial Services, shed light on financial literacy and wealth management, crucial aspects often overlooked by entrepreneurs. Shanel Evans, the co-owner of Fyre Saavy, shared her experiences and knowledge about marketing as a small business owner. Her talk was a potent reminder of the importance of diversifying our skills and venturing into unconventional sectors. The day was an educational experience and a celebration of black women entrepreneurs' resilience, determination, and strength. We left with a renewed sense of purpose, equipped with knowledge and connections to help us thrive in our respective fields.

Looking ahead, we plan to present a legislative agenda during next year's Virginia Black Chamber of Commerce Advocacy Day. In the meantime, the role of the Virginia Black Chamber of Commerce will be to create a legislative agenda and regularly facilitate conversations about how black business owners can be more involved in the ecosystem and economic growth of Virginia. Thank you for your generosity and support. Together, we can make this event a resounding success and continue to catalyze positive change within our community.
