The Queens Dinner
Our signature event “The Queens Dinner” is an uplifting twist to your typical girl’s night out! This event is jam packed with inspiring vibes as we break bread with like-minded women of color to build relationships, support one another, and hold each other accountable.
Each dinner has a specific theme that allows our attendees to leave empowered and gain some necessary tools to be their best selves. We cultivate an environment where our attendees feel comfortable to open up and talk about their goals and current projects while building trust, fostering a sense of community, and motivating each other in the process. And lets not forget the goodie bags filled with coupons and items from black women owned businesses!
This is an event you’ll definitely have to experience for yourself, stay tuned for details on our next one!
Holiday Happy Hour + Toys and Toiletry Drive
This past December we collaborated with the Bold and Beautiful Women Circle and Project Hope for a Holiday Happy Hour event at the Nigerian-owned restaurant Suya Joint. This event brought women from across the city together for a fun night of board games, discounted appetizers and drinks, and holiday cheer! We collected over 200 toys and toiletry items to benefit low-income families in the Boston area, combining service with fun. Check out some pictures from the event here!
Women & Wealth: A Financial Empowerment Conference for WOC
This is not your average financial workshop. Our interactive Women & Wealth conference is geared to teach you how to develop healthy habits to reach financial independence, while giving you some great insight, tips, & strategies to save, budget, and invest your money. Also, it wouldn’t be a Queens Co. event if we weren’t networking with other like-minded women! So of course there is also time to network and connect with other women looking to achieve similar financial goals. Check out some pictures from the event here!
