What makes a boss?” It’s a question we’ve asked many times at The Glow Up, where “we gloss, we floss and we boss,” but what does it look like in practice? Now in its 12th year, for the first time the BOSS Network’s Ladies That Lead Conference will take place virtually on Saturday, November 13, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Crafted for “women of influence who inspire other women by sharing their strategies and journey to success,” Tina Knowles-Lawson, Beverly Johnson, Dr. Cindy Trimm will appear as headliners alongside event CEO Cameka Smith.

Via a press release to The Root:
