Hey Everybody – I want to put in one final plug for Swap for a Cause – a curvy clothing swap and donation drive happening THIS SUNDAY for sizes 10 and up! The cost of admission? At least TWO pieces of interview apparel (e.g., a dark blazer and a pair of dress shoes). For every two items donated (up to a total of 12), you will be entered into drawings to win fabulous prizes (including a two hour styling session with Natasha Thomas of Archetype Style! Donated items will benefit N Street Village and Suited for Change.
In addition to the swap, there are TWO conferences happening in DC this October that offer great professional development and networking opportunities!
The first is Ms. JD: She Leads, a conference for women lawyers. The event will be held on Friday, October 5 at the Washington College of Law at American University (4801 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Washington, DC). The event will feature workshops on negotiation, team building, and presiding over a large group – whether it be as the executive director of a non-profit agency, judge in a courtroom, or as the lead attorney on a large case. The day will feature an impressive array of speakers – it’s an ideal opportunity for young lawyers as well as law students to learn and network! You can register for the event here.
PowerUP Weekend will be happening on Saturday, October 20 at the Washington Hilton (1919 Connecticut Avenue NW, Washington, DC). This event is sponsored by Uneeka Jay and Power Mommy Nation (which, incidentally, featured Curvy CEO as a guest on their radio show a while back). If you are a mother, a blogger, a working woman — you will definitely want to attend this conference! The agenda includes sessions like “The Balance Myth Exposed,” “Blogging for Balance: Creating a Virtual Outlet for Managing Life,” and “The Stylish Power of Choosing Wisely.” You can purchase tickets here.
Finally, even though it’s not an event, I would be remiss if I didn’t
beg ask you one more time to pretty please vote for Curvy CEO for Best Plus-Size Fashion Blog at the Black Weblog Awards. The top two picks advance to the finals. Voting ends October 1. Pretty please and thank you *mwah*
So, there you have it – Curvy CEO will be representing at these events. Hope you’ll be there, too!
