Local speaker's series debuts in Cary

ABC11 Together highlights the strength of the human spirit, good deeds, community needs, and how our viewers can help
CARY, N.C. (WTVD) -- The inaugural BECOME H.E.R. Speaker's Series kicked off the new year at the Vibe Coworking Space in Cary.

Created by best-selling author Katrina Chanel Burruss, people had the chance to listen in on inspiring stories and guide those in attendance towards their own personal and professional goals.

"BECOME H.E.R. is geared towards women and men from various backgrounds and ethnicities seeking to find ways to be happy, empowered, and renewed despite their circumstances both past and present," said Burruss. "Many times after we overcome challenging situations, we find ourselves in the 'what's next phase,' wondering where do we go from here. I created BECOME H.E.R. with the goal of showing the community positive representations of 'what's next' by connecting them with people like them."
Speakers for the event included keynote speaker Dee McDougal, Senior Vice-President of Diversity and Inclusion with Pacific Western Bank; First Lady Tequilla Davis of NOW Church; Christina Mial of Divine Grace Ministries International; and Erica Fenner-McAdoo of Howard Hall Elementary.

The event also featured a panel discussion and vendors' suite for shopping. For more information on upcoming events, check here.
