Attendees at Circle of Sisters 2019


Our Sisters are our lifeblood. We exist, because they are here. Black women face many challenges that are unique to their life experiences. When we show up on November 20-21st, it will be to encourage our Sisters to embrace themselves and each other. 

  • Have fun singing along to exclusive celebrity performances. 

  • Find your Sister community with networking and direct messaging in the virtual platform.


The COS Community is diverse group of Black women from various backgrounds and nationalities. Balancing their personal, professional, and spiritual lives is a skill that they’ve cultivated. We will provide content for those who need to scratch that entrepreneurial itch and those who need to find space to relax.

  • Get shopping with access to over 100+ vendors catering to our Sisters, many Black or woman-owned!
  • Attend live workshops on financial wellness, entrepreneurship, and finding creativity.
