Elevate Los Angeles

April 21, 2018

Elevate-Los-AngelesFelicia Davis and The Black Women’s Collective present Elevate Los Angeles on Saturday, April 21 from 1:30 to 7:30 at The Beach House.

Elevate is a one day leadership accelerator for black women uniquely designed to help you brand your brilliance, revolutionize the way you lead, and amplify your vision, voice and visibility! Learn what it takes to brand your brilliance in a way that attracts the right strategic relationships for success.

FACT: 44% of Black women feel that their career is stalled.
FACT: Black women earn 77 cents for every dollar earned by white women.
FACT: Black women lack the strategic relationships (mentors/sponsors) necessary to ascend.

It’s these facts that make The Black Women’s Collective and the Black Women Elevate Experience so necessary. The reality is that black women are losing ground in closing the pay gap and the only way to turn that around starts at Elevate.
