The full-day innovative and interactive conference is designed to inspire, motivate, and increase African American girls' (12 to 18 years of age) awareness of the changes and challenges they will encounter on their journey through life, and the choices they might make to ensure their future success and well-being. Workshop topics will range from how to start a business and dressing for success to graduating from high school and getting into college. In addition, conference attendees will learn about various career paths.

Ms. Cali is a versatile entrepreneur who has managed to capitalize on her wealth of knowledge and experience within the beauty, fashion, and entertainment industries. Chimene Davis and Bonnie Rutherford, two accomplished producers, will serve as the closing speakers. They will present their feature length documentary film, Origin of Rainbows: Colorism Exposed, and will lead an interactive discussion following the viewing.
