Exploring Possibilities of Inner Courage
Women of Color Conference and their allies!
The Women of Color Conference was founded by three dynamic Black women artists and entrepreneurs: DanceConnect Worldwide founder, Dominique Atwood, Praize Productions, Inc. founder, Enneréssa LaNette, and F.E.E.D. founder, Florence Walker-Harris. Atwood, LaNette, and Walker-Harris came together to create a safe space for women of color to gather and collaborate, while also sharing experiences, resources, and expertise to heal, encourage, and positively change themselves and their surrounding worlds.
This unique conference is specifically curated for women of color and their allies from all walks of life. It begins with an interactive session hosted by F.E.E.D. (Fiyah, Edifying, Empowering, Developing), and will integrate movement and conversation to amplify women empowerment across the spectrum; from career development, body image, relationships, finances, personal vision, decision-making, and more. Attendees will laugh, cry, share, and inspire each other on a journey that provides them with opportunities to express themselves, ensure that their voice is heard, as well as create life-long and impactful connections alongside their fellow sisters.
The conference will conclude with “A Seat at the Table” dining experience curated by Praize Productions, Inc.: an evening of fine dining and intentional entertainment that allows participants to discover their rightful place at the “table.” With the help of DanceConnect Worldwide, this intimate experience gathers women leaders from diverse career backgrounds in the same room; allowing them to not only share resources and stories, but simultaneously cultivate and celebrate the power of sisterhood for making a positive impact in their households, communities, and respective fields.
Our 2023 Honorees.
