1,000’s of Black Women Invited to Rediscover Joy at Transformative 3-Day Retreat in Maryland

Julian B. Kiganda

NationwideEMERGE Live!, a groundbreaking 3-day immersive retreat, will bring together visionary Black women from April 19 – 21, 2024 at the luxurious Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in PG County, Maryland. The organizers welcome women to embark on a transformative journey toward rest, healing, growth, and joy in a safe and supportive space.

Amidst escalating challenges, Black women confront a pressing need for healing and connection. EMERGE Live! offers a sanctuary for women of color to rest, recalibrate, and reignite their passions.

Julian B. Kiganda, the visionary behind EMERGE Live!, emphasizes the necessity for women to reclaim their joy: “After attending six funerals and navigating unimaginable grief and loss in 2022, I recognized that many of my sisters were going through similar struggles, often in isolation. It made me realize how crucial it is for Black women to find spaces where they can authentically express themselves and find support. EMERGE Live! is that space—a place to rediscover joy and create a new vision for personal and professional fulfillment.”

This transformative event promises an array of enriching experiences, including dynamic workshops, engaging discussions, and soulful performances. Renowned speakers such as Gina Paige, President and Co-founder of African Ancestry, Lydia G. Sermons, Vice President & Chief Communications Officer at Howard University, Viola Llewellyn, award-winning FinTech innovator and Co-founder of The Tulle-Box, and Julian B. Kiganda, Founder of EMERGE Live! and CEO of JBK Brand Design LLC, will share insights gleaned from their own journeys of resilience and innovation. Stay tuned for exciting announcements as additional speakers are revealed in the days ahead.

Guided by experts dedicated to empowering women of color, attendees will delve into topics ranging from holistic healing techniques and boundary setting to navigating change and figuring out your next chapter. The Creative Visionary Lounge will serve as a hub for inspiration, while the elegant Chic Boutique, lively African dance class, and soothing sound bath session offer moments of relaxation, cultural celebration, and healing.

EMERGE Live! caters to women at every stage of their journey—whether seasoned professionals, budding entrepreneurs, or emerging leaders eager to embrace their potential.
