It’s nearly impossible to attend Women of Power and leave without making one sisterly connection with someone you don’t know. There’s no greater feeling than meeting up with your sistah-friends at the summit to reconnect, recharge, and encourage one another as you pursue your goals.

Speaking of sisters, we are excited to announce that we will be honoring Debbie Allen, award-winning director and choreographer, as a 2020 Legacy Award recipient. And get this, her sister, Phylicia Rashad, a 2017 Legacy Award Honoree and award-winning actress will be at the summit, too! Talk about a moment in time.

We are looking forward to a powerful time in Vegas. And we encourage you to bring a sistah with you. Or in the words of past Legacy Award winner, Cynt Marshall, “Help a Sistah out!”

Until then, be sure to join the Women of Power Facebook group to commune with powerful women.

Meet a Sistah!
