-- The event offers a dynamic opportunity for women in business from various sectors to get educated, to share information, and to get renewed inspiration about the rewards of business ownership. --

The Women's Entrepreneur Expo (WEE) is holding the ninth annual expo in Prince George’s County on Saturday, November 4, 2017. This business expo is for women entrepreneurs and those looking to become entrepreneurs, to share practical business tips, to get educated and reignite their enthusiasm in being business owners. The expo will feature 6 business professionals who will provide FREE educational, interactive, and hands-on workshops.

WEE was founded by its present president, Joan Henry, who birthed the idea from her passion to motivate like-minded women in business. Henry comments, “Things are tough for business owners which is why the event has free admission. We recognize that business owners need other business leaders to keep them motivated. This will be done by providing practical information, hands-on experience and the chance to do true networking with these business leaders in order to remain motivated, keep others employed which plays a part in continued economic growth for various communities that touch many parts of Maryland and I may add, we have a great location to do it.”

Odyssey Media To Host 3rd Annual "IN THE BLACK" Tour, October 30 - November 15

Odyssey Media, the leading brand in the empowerment of multicultural women, has announced the return of IN THE BLACK, the high-octane event that provides a unique environment for multicultural women to share insights, discover business strategies and build relationships. More than 5,000 women have participated in previous IN THE BLACK programs in over 20 cities.

For the third consecutive year, the tour is part of The Coca-Cola Company's 5by20 initiative. This national tour has repeatedly empowered thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs to launch their businesses, across every industry. And, it is in this spirit that IN THE BLACK returns to Houston, Texas providing free registration to over 150 women, thanks to the generosity of The Coca-Cola Company.

"We know that women are the pillars of our communities. We strongly believe in investing in women to foster economic growth and sustainable development," said Lori George Billingsley, Vice President of Community Connections at The Coca-Cola Company. "We are proud to support women entrepreneurs by partnering with Odyssey Media's In The Black Tour, a program that empowers women to build businesses, support their families and shape their communities."

Linda Spradley Dunn, CEO and Founder of Odyssey Media is quoted as saying, "Harvey has been especially difficult for Black and Latina small business owners and it has discouraged many who wanted to start a business. Our sisters need us, and we will be there! We will customize the program and focus on where women can get immediate help as well as what other Odyssey women around the world can do to help."

In addition, attendees also get to experience products from sponsor Coty, Inc., in the IN THE BLACK beauty stations, where they can transform their image using popular products, including Rimmel, Clairol, Sally Hansen and Covergirl.

This national tour returns featuring local business women in Atlanta, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia and Houston.
