BRAVE Summit 2017

  • Georgetown University McDonough School of Business Washington, DC 20057 (map)

BRAVE was pioneered by several Black women of Georgetown University for the purpose of uplifting Black womanhood. We are on a mission to further expose the magic that lies within us, by celebrating black women and strengthening our leadership skills.

Description of the summit

The Georgetown University Women of Color invite you to the second annual BRAVE Summit, recognizing the work and accomplishments of black women (the first in the nation) on March 25th, 2017. 

Often times, we're told that black women need to be empowered when in fact, black women already have this power and don't need someone to give it to them. We just need the space to unleash it. That's also why 300+ black women and allies came together last year to celebrate the black woman. This year, we're recognizing the fact that we're the most educated group, we're recognizing the fact that black women's voices are being heard, and we're recognizing the work that we're doing, the work that was done by the black women that led before us, and the work that future generations will do, with our help.

Therefore, this summit, titled BRAVE (Black. Resilient. Artistic. Vigilant. Enough.), will bring women leaders particularly in the DC area, and we’re structuring our summit in panels and break out sessions for students across the DC, Maryland, and Virginia areas, with invitation to select high school seniors.
