The “Beautiful Woman Inside and Out”

The “Beautiful Woman Inside and Out” event is designed to educate, empower and equip women to live their BEST lives. Our objective is to address the “whole” woman and provide the necessary information in a culturally relevant manner that allows women to make informed choices about their health/wellness with a focus on both their inner (health/wellness) and outer beauty (physical attributes).

The Beautiful Woman Inside and Out Conference 2023!
April 21-22, 2023
5151 Pooks Hill Road, Bethesda, Maryland 20814 USA

"Beautiful Woman Inside and Out" (BWIO) was created to empower, educate, and celebrate women! We do just that with our daylong "over-the top" conference. Women leave feeling uplifted, special, refreshed and very much pampered! BWIO has expanded over the years and 2023 is no different! This year we are adding to our Friday lineup with many optional events for registrants, and you cannot sleep on A Beautiful Friday Girl’s Night Out! (see details below).

Schedule at a Glance (tentative)

The “main” event is on Saturday April 22nd; we added Friday “Girl’s Night” a few years ago as a party before the conference and it is a huge hit! In 2023 we are EXPANDING Friday, and these are optional events with no additional expense to our registrants, but you must pre-register for them, and space is limited. This agenda is tentative and subject to change; we wanted to give you a working overview of our over-the-top empowerment conference.

What is the difference in poster/print, lithograph and an original? What about pricing? What works in my kitchen, my living room, what colors and types of art should I look for and any other questions that you may have. This will be a real treat!
