On Tuesday November 19, 2019, Tene Nicole, Marketing and Public Relations’ Hosted it’s 3rd Annual Pow(H)er Awards Dinner at the famous Walt Clyde Frazier Wine & Dine. It was an annual event that recognizes highly-accomplished, innovative women for their achievements and improvements in their respective careers.
It was an evening dedicated to giving back said CEO and Founder Nikkia McClain. The dinner was curated for two hundred and fifty influential guests from business, politics, media and entertainment industries such as Founder of ADCOLOR, Tiffany Warren, Social Justice Activist Tamika Mallory, EVP Business Development Endeavor Michele Thornton Ghee, and so many more. Award-Winning Journalist & Talk Show Host Tamron Hall was honored the 2019 “Unapologetically HER” Pow(H)er Awards, which was presented by American broadcast journalist and executive producer, Soledad O’Brien.
Another special honoree for 2019 “Unapologetically HER” Pow(H)er Awards was Entertainment Powerhouse, Yandy Smith-Harris who gave a heart felt speech about our communities uniting together to be the voice for the oppressed and to help address some sensitive subjects such as mass incarceration.
Tene Nicole, Marketing and Public Relations’ ability to organize such an empowering evening was inspiring for so many women in attendance. We were immersed in a sea full of powerful women of color. All hats off to the incredible CEO and Founder Nikkia McClain for creating such a platform for tribe of powerful women to celebrate each other and to learn from each other.
Entrepreneur and entertainment pioneer Monique Idlett said to me “We don’t have to be the best of friends, but Let’s Make Money Together”.
My personal take home was the inspiring off camera conversation I had with The humbling Michele Thornton Ghee to know your worth as a woman at your place of work and know when the time is right for the next venture.
