High achieving leaders and ambitious executives are set to cross paths at the ninth annual Ubiquitous Women’s Expo taking place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center from July 21 to July 23. Their theme, “The Power of Us,” is dedicated to helping women reach the next level professionally and personally through beauty, wellness and health.

“Our aim is to unite and empower women of color, highlighting their achievements and providing valuable resources for personal and professional growth,” said Germaine Bolds-Leftridge, founder of the expo and creator of IKnow Skincare. “We have curated an unforgettable experience that celebrates the brilliance and talent within our community. The Ubiquitous Women’s Expo is a platform for inspiration, connection and transformation, where women can come together to share their stories, uplift one another, and foster a collective strength that propels us all forward.”

Among those sharing their stories are reality-tv stars from various notable networks. Dr. Heavenly Kimes, a relationship expert from Bravo’s “Married to Medicine,” Ashley Silva, reality TV star and owner of “Love and Marriage DC,” as well as Stormy Wellington also known as “Coach Stormy” are expected to be in attendance at the three day conference.
