Every year MelimeL Digital Art Design's Women Empowerment Event brings together a plethora of entrepreneurs, go-getters and professionals (most women-owned) ready to network, discuss, learn and get empowered through meaningful panel discussion and interaction. This year's 5th Annual Event at La Maison d'Art in Harlem on March 18 was no different and even drew Gale Brewer, Manhattan Borough President in attendance. The event brought together another inspiring group of presenters and panelists, who are making waves in the realm of corporate, law, and medicine including:
YESI MORILLO-GUAL, President & Founder, Proud To Be Latina and Executive Director, Citi, http://www.proudtobelatina.com/
STACY J GROSSMAN, Founder & Attorney, The Law Office of Stacy J. Grossman, http://www.stacygrossmanlaw.com/

Performance by Poet & Writer Audrey Dimola
MelimeL is the CEO and Founder of MelimeL Digital Art Design and the host and moderator of the annual panel event. She has been described as having "an incredible curatorial eye for diverse and powerful women entrepreneurs, artists, writers, speakers, and more and bringing them together in a beautiful, fun, and uplifting way," by Audrey Dimola. MelimeL is passionate about women empowerment and is encouraged more and more each year by the numerous success stories, triumphs, and opportunities that guests and panelists have experienced since attending the annual event. At this year's 5th Annual, she acknowledged some of those successes, including the attendees who have been to all the events since the 1st Annual in 2013 (such as Owner of Cecile's Bath & Body, Jackie Granchamps and Chef, Owner, and 1st Annual Panelist, Chimere Ward of Clean Plate Co).
It is without question that MelimeL aims to empower everyone in attendance and before this year's 5th Annual event had the opportunity to interview with DJ Whyse of the Brockton, MA based podcast, The Sixth Element, where she discussed why she started the women empowerment event and more. Listen to the interview here and join MelimeL and another incredible panel at next year's 6th Annual Women Empowerment Event in March 2018.
