ONE FIERCE WOMAN:
BY WORD OF
HER TESTIMONY

IMG_0112-2_edited_edited_edited.png

One Fierce Woman is not your average conference. 

 

Our inaugural gathering, which will be guided by the theme “By Word of Her Testimony,” will help you find the courage to embrace—and share—your life story.

 

Whether it’s a story of despair or a story of success, you will leave with a deep understanding that by accepting your circumstances and yourself—the good, the bad, and the ugly—and sharing your testimony, you will find healing and growth, while offering a guiding light to other women.

 

You will learn to challenge long-held societal norms that leave us feeling anguished, judged, and sidelined (“forgiving and forgetting,” “what pain should look like,” and how long that pain should last). You’ll learn that stories of success deserve to be trumpeted loudly and proudly without judgment—and that labels like “conceited” or “boastful” should be refused. 

 

Most importantly, you’ll reclaim your light and your life—leaving this conference feeling empowered to share your testimony, whatever it may be. 

Our engaging speakers are incredible women from all walks of life, who will share their inspiring stories and their expertise. The interactive panels will offer candid discussions on a variety of topics—from starting a business and the challenges of motherhood to dating, fashion, sex, and beauty. The hybrid event will feature in-person panelists and performances, as well as a library of inspiring on-demand content. 

 

All proceeds from the conference will support The Kriscia Fund, a 501c3 organization that offers legal aid and mental health services to women and children.

The Griot Friday  
                                                                                                
In Person

When we began planning a conference that celebrated women standing strong and true in their stories, we instantly knew that we had to invite recording artist Maimouna Youssef (aka “Mumu Fresh”) to join the celebration. 

 

A multi-talented singer and songwriter, Maimouna’s voice is soulful, sultry, and impassioned—and she comes with a powerful testimony of her own. Her ability to tell a story through song is unparalleled, while her lyrics—whether she raps, sings, or moans—are unforgettable.

With a theme of “The Truth Shall Set You Free”, Friday evening's activity are all about setting the stage for freedom.

We’ve planned:

 

  • An opening activity where you, the attendee, will literally set the stage

  • A panel discussion with conference guests and speakers 

  • A dynamic acoustical performance by Mu Mu Fresh

5:00 pm  - 6:00 pm           Check in / Reception and Dancing / Exhibit Hall

Vanessa  Elam

Pieces of Me: the Villain and the Heroine

When you are the bad guy...

Can I tell you something? This is a tough one for me. Facing the parts of myself that didn't behave so honorably.

 

We aren't always the angel. We haven't always chosen the right thing, even when  we knew what the right thing was. Vanessa Elam is going to unpack an uncomfortable testimony with us.

 

What do you do if you're the bad guy in your story?

What if you're the one wreaking havoc, being messy and not taking responsibility for your actions?

 

Vanessa was. She's having this VERY transparent, rudely brave conversation with participants brave enough to own the pieces of you -- the villain and the heroine.

Mama knew, but she ain't tell you!

Families Hiding Health Histories

Was Grandma a bitch, or was it trauma that she never told you about? Was your aunt unapproachable, or was it an undiagnosed mental illness? Did your cousin shave her head, or was it alopecia? Did your sister choose not to have children, or were there hormonal or fertility issues?

 

This talk is about breaking the cycle of putting off not knowing where we stand as far as our health.  We avoid annual physicals and pap smears, and wait until something is on fire! If we all say amen at the same time, no one will know it’s you…hallelujah!

 

We have to know where we stand and address medical issues. It is imperative to recognize the life changing importance of knowing our family medical histories.  Further, in addition to knowing the history, we must begin sharing it with our nieces and our daughters. 

 

This seminar is for e'erybody and they mama.! Maybe she'll finally start telling you what's really going on!

Sam (Shena) Smith

Eliminate to Elevate Your Style Story.

Changing your fashion testimony...

Fashion is fun, yet sometimes it can be confusing to know what to buy, what to toss, how to wear it, when to wear it, how to revamp it.  And let's face it, when you're staring down a closet full of items that no longer serve you, taking those first steps to get rid of pieces that don't reflect who you are or who you want to be can be difficult. Don't worry about it, here comes Sam to the rescue!

In this session Sam will share how to purge and prep for your Fierce Style Season! I feel possibility all over that statement "purge to prep for your Fierce Style Season!"  Yes, Ma'am.

So get your mind ready to let go and press the margins. We are talking about eliminating to elevate your style story.

The Kitchen Table - Lunch Discussion

Girlfriend conversations you're too shy to have...

Tea will be spilled, honey, Tea will be spilled! 

 

Remember the conversations your mom, aunts, and grandmothers had in the kitchen while they cooked? Well, that's what this is! During the lunch hour, a group of phenomenal women are engaging us in some good girlfriend "kitchen table" talk!  

 

Tiffanie, Dr. T, and a few others are volunteering to spill the tea first! We are bringing it all to the table. There will be  a variety of questions.. The topics are serious, silly, fun, revealing, superficial, impactful, and negligible. Nothing is off limits at the kitchen table.

 

And unlike when we were kids, you can be all up in "they mouf"!!!
