Power Rising Conference

Power Rising Comes to Atlanta - Star Jones a Founder

Feb 17, 2018

On the February 17 edition of  The Local Take I speak with former prosecutor and member of television's The View Star Jones.  Jones and I discuss the 2018 Power Rising Conference taking place in Atlanta.   Jones is President and a member of the Board of Directors of National Association of Professional Women and Professional Diversity Network.

As one of the founders she shares with us information about the conference and how it came to be from a Congressional Black Caucus Women's meeting.

This week on The Local Take I speak with Leah Daughtry, one of the founders of the Power Rising conference taking place in Atlanta February 23  - 25 at Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel. 

Leah shares with us how the conference came to be, explaining that they are reaching out to African American women who are the largest and most consistent voting block in the country.  Black women in the USA command 1.3 Trillion in spending power.
