Open to all Female Strong supporters, YEA! Program parents, those interested in learning more about our mission and programs for girls
Join us as our Founder, Emily Smith chats with Khalilah Lyons of Candidly Connected (and Female Strong Board Member!) about the history of her business, having open and difficult conversations with your kids, her work in diversity, equity, and inclusion, and successful tips to support and start conversations at home.
Khalilah serves as diversity and inclusion strategist for several nonprofits. Lyons aligns her passion to disrupt exclusive narratives and create opportunities for inclusion and diversity across Chicagoland. Her active spirit for inclusion extends in being a mentor, advisory council member, thought leader, notable keynote speaker, board member and avid volunteer. Lyons’ purpose, experience and zeal drive her to present compelling stories, facilitate workshops, influence youth and create spaces for courageous — and often provocative — conversations. She’s often quoted in various publications and Lyons believes in the power of culture.
