It has been documented that women who are surrounded by other positive women have a greater chance to thrive professionally. Women are not one dimensional; there are many features of a woman. Her strength in her trauma, her motivation to become better, her persistence to educate herself, her unyielding commitment to enhancing sisterhood, and her ability to provide leadership not only to others but to herself and her family. These are the topics that will be explored on April 27, 2018, at the “The Sisters In S.T.E.P (Self-Develop, Transform, Embrace & Prepare). Experience”.
Conference Theme: My "Sole" Has a Story
The Sisters In S.T.E.P. Experience creates an environment that encourages women to be bold enough to tell their "SOLE" stories. Every woman has a journey and we believe her shoes tell the story.
Expect to S.T.E.P. at the 8th Annual Sisters in S.T.E.P. Experience - Friday, April 27, 2018. This experience is for leaders, influencers, seekers, entrepreneurs, survivors, the sisterhood and those ready to S.T.E.P.

TEA WITH DE: Host Deirdre Williams-Sanderlin brings her popular Facebook show to life for the first time for a live in-person session. Tea with De has reached an audience of thousands on Facebook. It’s honest talk where guests “spill the tea” on themselves and their experiences which have lead them S.T.E.P. up and S.T.E.P. out in their own lives.
When you don’t need another inspirational quote, you need Tea with De.
GENERAL ADMISSION EXPERIENCE
11:00 AM:11:15 AM: OFFICIAL WELCOME
11:15 AM-NOON: STRONG, DETERMINED AND FEARLESS EXPERIENCE: “Murder,” it’s an ugly word and there is just no way to sugar coat it. There are two things we know for sure when we hear the word “murder,” 1) Someone has lost their life at the hands of another and 2) Someone has lost a loved one.
In this workshop, panelists share their heart-wrenching sole stories of being mothers of murdered children. For many, this is an unimaginable pain, panelists have lived through it and still stand to strengthen and support others. Learn how they took their worst moment and used it to S.T.E.P. forward to change lives and to change laws for a better future.
