About this Event

Coronavirus Update: The EmpowHERment Expo has been rescheduled to Saturday, August 22, 2020

What is The EmpowHERment Expo?

The EmpowHERment Expo is the premiere, one-day networking event for motivated, working millennial Black Women and Women of Color boasting influencers, panelists, keynote speakers, vendors and multi-cultural focused products. The EmpowHERment Expo is curated specifically for Women of Color by a Woman of Color.

Conference Programming: 11AM - 4:00 PM

Why was The EmpowHERment Expo created?

Courtney Chanel (@courtchanelsays) hosts popular and transformative monthly/quarterly events and workshops curated specifically for Black Women and Women of Color. The EmpowHERment Expo was realized not only to fulfill the need for curated spaces for women of color, but to increase event accessibility to the New York City metro area.

After assessing the millennial women conference sphere, there was a clear observation--the tri-state area has yet to have an event curated specifically for millennial women of color.

The Founder--Courtney Chanel

Courtney Chanel is a millennial Black woman, a mother, social worker, therapist, social impact speaker and Millennial Mental Health and Wellness Specialist. She curates unique events and content seeking to educate and empower others to make change that can impact other generations, culture and society.
