The Women of Color Empowerment Institute, Inc., is starting a mentorship program. We are planning to host an event that will allow girls, under the age of 18, to meet with some of our special guests prior to the Friday evening Jazz concert. If you have a name of a young lady that you would like considered for this opportunity, please provide the name, parent’s name, address, telephone number and your relationship with the teen. Due to the fact that the conference is generally sold out weeks prior, we will be focusing on our target audience of women leaders for conference attendance.
We encourage you to register online for the conference as soon as possible. Space is limited and the conference has sold out each year for the past four years well prior to the conference date. Due to C-Span airing at the 2014 conference, the conference is expected to attract leaders from throughout the United States. Register early!
