AskHer Series: Our Power. Our Legacy.

During this conversation, we gave a nod to the resilience and strength of entrepreneur sheroes in our community. From overcoming obstacles to driving lasting change, these entrepreneurs embody the spirit of perseverance that has defined women throughout history.

We heard from Sonya Ali, Co-founder of Ben’s Chili Bowl Enterprise; Denise Collazo, Activist and Author of Thriving in the Fight: A Survival Manual for Latinas on the Front Lines of Change; and Destiny Daniel, Founder of Being My Destiny. During this conversation, each panelist shared their professional journeys, highlighting their challenges and the transformative power of sisterhood. We also discussed ways to support entrepreneurs and tangible first steps for those interested in becoming their own boss and transforming their passion projects into a business.

This session was moderated by Beth Johnson, Founder and CEO of RP3 Agency and former Board Chair of Washington Area Women’s Foundation.
