We hosted our inaugural event Leading Change with Style: Women & Entrepreneurship Brunch at the Skybox Event Center located in the heart of Philadelphia.
At The Front Office Daily, we created this signature event to deliver an experience where young, black and ambitious women could be inspired by the very women who they aspire to be.
Did you know that Black women are the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs in the U.S.?

The prestigious panel featured Claire Sulmers, Founder of the Fashion Bomb Daily, stylist and jewelry designer Crystal Streets, Marilyn Van Alstyne of EMVE Management Group, Yolanda Keels-Walker of the Business Babes, and Danielle Dawkins-Alston, McDonald’s Owner/Operator in the Philadelphia Area.
