On Saturday, September 20, 2014 Radio One presents the One VIP Women’s Empowerment at the Greater Richmond Convention Center, 403 North Third Street, Richmond, VA 23219. Event time 12pm-5pm doors will open at 11am.
The forum will feature dynamic women poised enough to share their real life stories of tragedy to triumph. We will uncover the smiles behind the trials and give women the tools to claim the victory in all aspects of their lives. We will have in-depth discussions about health, finances, fitness, relationships and entreprenuarship.
Ladies we take care of families, homes, cars and others better than we take of ourselves. This should not be. Be good to you and your body will be better equipped to take care of others.
