For the ninth year, Spelman College will host its annual Leadership and Women of Color Conference featuring actress/entrepreneur Nicole Ari Parker and famed crisis communications expert/author Judy Smith — the real-life inspiration for ABC’s hit series “Scandal” — as two of its honorees and keynote speakers. The two-day event will be held at the Georgia International Convention Center, May 15 – 16, 2013.

Convened by Jane E. Smith, Ed.D., executive director of the Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement at Spelman, the conference will feature notable thought leaders and industry influencers engaging attendees from business, public policy, and education in detailed discussions centered on the theme, Strategic Leadership: Building Wealth, Entrepreneurship and Paying It Forward.

This must-attend event for women and men in both the corporate and non-profit sectors will provide information and tools to help 21st century women of color strategically focus on building wealth, creating businesses and using both to make important, sustainable contributions to their communities.

“During the conference, attendees will learn from and pay tribute to corporate and community power brokers,” said Dr. Smith. “We are bringing forth those individuals whose commitment and leadership are making a difference in work places, communities and the health and wealth of women of color.”
