Empower Me Summit

Marlin Woods founded the Empower Me Summit in 2017 to accommodate the requests he was receiving for mentorship.

The Empower Me Summit provides African Americans with a platform to collaborate across the United States with education and inspiration as its method and unity of a people driving a trajectory shift.

The Vision of the Empower Me Summit

This annual gathering of African Americans in the Pittsburgh region is a place where divided silos can collaborate, educate, and inspire an expansion of community support.

While the Empower Me Summit originally began as a seminar for mentorship, it has evolved into the critical bridge for black empowerment in Western Pennsylvania. With this platform, the community's respected contributors are provided to a group of engaged listeners to promote personal development and unity and where an investment of mentorship has a lasting legacy effect on the community.

I have had the opportunity to participate as a speaker/facilitator, as well as an attendee at the Empower Me Summit. This event draws professional people from all age groups and industries and the attendees are excited to be in a room full of like-minded individuals so being a speaker, under those circumstances, is a treat because you know that your audience is engaged and eager to hear what you have to say. I highly recommend this event to anyone who can make it, the cost of entry is minimal and the take-aways are abundant.
