Inspiring Beauty: Empowering Young Women: The Mayor's Red Carpet Affair and The Distinguished Gentleman, The Mayor's Appointment: Inspiring Success in Young Men are programs designed for young men and young women. New to the Inspiring Success Series in 2018 is a conference for adults, Inspiring Our Community: Today, tomorrow and always!

Mayor Warren’s vision for Inspiring Beauty: Empowering Young Women: The Mayor's Red Carpet Affair came after the City of Rochester's sponsorship of Inspiring Beauty: 50 Years of Ebony Fashion Fair, an exhibit that was held at the Memorial Art Gallery in 2016. Rochester, New York was one of five cities in the country selected to host this premier event.

Mayor Warren wanted young women to have an opportunity to come and view the exhibit at a special “preview-night," while networking with their peers and meeting professional women from the community who were invited by Mayor Warren.

After this formal event, Mayor Warren knew that the young men in our city deserved the same opportunity, and thus developed The Distinguished Gentleman Series, The Mayor's Appointment: Inspiring Success in Young Men

After submitting an essay, young people ages 14 to 22 have the opportunity to come and take part in these formal educational and networking events. Attendees of Inspiring Beauty and Distinguished Gentleman each receive a "Success bag," filled with planners, jewelry or ties and more, all donated by community groups, role models and fraternal organizations.

After receiving inquiries from adult residents of our community, asking for a similar event, coupled with the calls she receives daily, Mayor Warren created an annual conference for adults -- combining elements of Inspiring Beauty and Distinguished Gentleman. Attendees of Inspiring Our Community: Today, tomorrow and always! will have the opportunity to take part in uplifting conference sessions, workshops and gain invaluable life and networking skills.

Immediately following the conference, attendees will meet with business and educational organizations, service providers from the private sector, city and county government, and other agencies to help equip them with the knowledge and resources to empower them to successfully navigate some of the life situations they encounter.
