The Bronx Women's Power Lunch

“I’m a Bronx girl, born and raised…..and my true desire is to inspire women to become more self-reliant and confident in their own abilities. We all have "it" within ourselves to do things that we never imagined we could.” Those were a few of the many inspiring words given by one of the honorees, Barbara Kavovit, owner of Barbara K. Enterprises, Inc.

She, along with two other honorees where recognized for their many accomplishments to their gender and community. This wonderful luncheon was hosted by the Bronx Borough President, Adolpho Carrion Jr, in conjunction with the Bronx Tourism Council and the Bronx Chamber of Commerce.

This was a celebration of women’s contribution to society, in particular to the Bronx and as I looked around the room, I saw so many amazing, phenomenal women. Our keynote speaker, Ms. Brenda Blackmon, shared with us her very own inspirations, her grandmother and her daughter, that encouraged her to pursue her dreams and give back to the next generation.

Adolpho Carrion Jr, spoke about the great impact that women have on the Bronx and our society.
