CEO and businesswoman, Beverly Johnson, paves the way with the Prudential Financial sponsored Ladies That Lead session, which celebrates female leadership and defines the standards for success. Beverly Johnson will be alongside financial expert, Jewel Tankard, Blueprint Group founder, Tai Beauchamp, and award-winning producer, Sidra Smith. These ladies will be sharing tips for moving closer to your goals and strategies for achieving the ultimate success. You don’t want to miss this.

While the ladies are learning the keys to success, the gentlemen will be re-claiming and re-framing what it means to be a black man, with the BE Modern Man panel. The panel will feature speakers such as Jopwell CEO, Porter Braswell, accompanied by entrepreneur, Nehemiah Davis, as they explore what it means to go from victimhood, to celebration and affirmation, all while making extraordinary the new normal.

Both sessions, and many more, will take place in 2 weeks. Saturday, June 20 — Sunday, June 21 in Baltimore, Maryland, at the Camden Yards Sports & Entertainment Complex. The AAF is FREE and open to the public.
