Even if hardcore workouts aren’t your thing, Empowered is going to teach a fun dance workout you don’t even have to leave your seats for!
The Goodie Bag of a Lifetime
This year, Smart Girls Group is pairing up with Erin Condren (an Intern Queen favorite!) to give every conference attendee their own planner! Plus, upon hearing how much last year’s attendees loved their Stella & Dot swag, Smart Girls Group decided to invite them back for round two. Empowered By You (who gives 20% of their net profits to empower women out of poverty and into business via microfinance) is sending every attendee home with a pair of underwear. And if those sound awesome to you, just wait to hear what else Smart Girls Group has up their sleeves.
