NEW YORK, NY – Three months following the “35 Heirs Gala” the launch of their inaugural “Heir’s List”, the agency is back with something for the community. HEIR-ish is a panel series that kicked off during Black History Month, with the plan to show impact and betterment in our communities, gifting our people with the proper gems and resources to thrive in today’s society.
“I felt there was a need for this, especially in our communities. Often times we look outside for mentors and validation when we can just turn to our own brothers and sisters. My only hope is to utilize my platform so that others are able to gain a platform with hopes of paying it forward,” said Lewis.
There has been so much happening to our women that it was only fitting to launch the series during Women’s History Month with a Power of Woman themed panel. Each of the selected women are phenomenal and making history, with amazing testimonies and platforms. Their professional backgrounds are very diverse, but one thing they have in common…power. The power to not let societal standards hinder them from reaching new heights, the power to forge new opportunity while surpassing old goals and the power to dig down deep and tap into a mystical source to ignore passion on a daily.
The panel opened up with a healing exercise, where panelists were tasked with selecting a female audience member and sharing what they find beautiful about her. Following the healing exercise the women shared their opinions on critical social movements like #blackwomenatwork and #findourgirls. It was during the discussion surrounding the DC missing girls that panelist (Jame) began to open up about her struggled growing up in DC and how this is nothingness for the nation’s capital and how she was almost one of those girls.
The night went on with some amazing testimonials and anecdotes that kept the audience on their toes. It is something quite beautiful when you gather 5 women from different walks of life and ask them to engage in powerful, uplifting dialogue. With experience in curating panel series for major corporations like Verizon, UPS and Prudential — there is no doubt that this panel series will be a success.
