The Equity Alliance’s Black Women’s Empowerment Weekend the highly anticipated two-day event to celebrate Black excellence, joy, advancement and #BlackGirlMagic! Created to honor the contributions of extraordinary Black women in cultural, political and business arenas, our signature fundraiser brings together more than 600 community leaders, corporate allies, elected officials and Black women from all walks of life. Day one of our event is a  full-day convening that holistically caters to the experiences of everyday Black women with dialogue and workshops while day two is our signature brunch and fundraiser where we honor four dynamic Black women. Last year our event nearly sold out, bringing together more than 500 community leaders, corporate allies, elected officials and Black women from all walks of life. 

If you missed the inaugural Black Women’s Empowerment Weekend, you truly missed a vibe. We turned up and two stepped to the sounds of DJ Crop Top Tot and were serenaded with performances by The Shindellas, Cojo Ko Music and more! Our weekend host Dr. Wendy Osefo of Bravo’s Real Housewives of Potomac showed us style and grace while the full-day Black Women’s Empowerment Summit gave us something to talk about for the rest of the year! This year, the weekend will feature a full-day summit, vendor marketplace, and our signature brunch!


JULY 7, 2023 | 2PM – 7PM

This half-day convening will holistically affirm and amplify the unique life experiences of the modern Black woman through main stage panels that cater to every woman’s inner boss, baddie and beloved. Led by credentialed experts, immersive topics will include: entrepreneurship, wealth building, relationships, career development, holistic wellness, and civic leadership. 

The Summit will be a safe space for Black women, men, and all our allies in attendance to
have open dialogue.
