Howard to Host Delta Sigma Theta Empowerment Conference for Teenage Girls
More than 400 teenage girls from the Washington-Metropolitan area are expected at Howard University tomorrow morning for Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc’s 20th Annual Woman to Woman Conference. Actress Tatyana Ali will serve as keynote speaker for the event.
Past headliners included the Dorothy Height, president emeritus of the National Council of Negro Women and Valeisha Butterfield, founder of Women in Entertainment Empowerment Network.
“This year, we aimed to get younger speakers that could relate to the girls and could give them advice on how to get started, because they mostly just got there themselves,” said Karla McKenzie, chair of the conference’s speakers committee.
