WASHINGTON (January 31, 2013) – After 100 years of service, The Alpha Chapter, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. will present the 21st Annual Woman to Woman Conference at Howard University on Wednesday, Feb. 6. The event will feature Angela Simmons, star of MTV Network Shows “Run’s House” and” Daddy’s Girls” and co-founder of the popular clothing, sneaker and handbag/accessory line PASTRY, as its keynote speaker. 

An estimated 550 young girls between the ages of 14-18 years old are expected to participate in this year’s conference titled, Sister’s Let’s Talk: Redefining Our Goals, Advancing Towards Unprecedented Heights. The purpose of the conference is to educate young women in the Washington region and introduce them to positive role models in the Black community who may later serve as contacts in specific fields of endeavor.

Professionals and experts in the areas of medicine, entertainment, business, arts, law, and science will facilitate a number of workshops. In addition, the event will feature discussions on topics such as the advantages of higher education, establishing a foundation for careers and goals, and overcoming personal obstacles.

“We strive to inspire young women by selecting speakers who are making a difference in their communities,” said Erin Keith, president of Alpha Chapter, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. “With this conference, we hope to carry out the ideals of our founders and influence the lives of these young women in positive ways.”
