Actress Kym Whitley speaks at 12th Annual Women's Empowerment Luncheon in Columbus

Posted: Updated:

Women across the valley came together this afternoon, March 14, for the 12th Annual Women's Empowerment Luncheon.

This year's keynote speaker was actress and comedian Kym Whitley.

Whitley is known for several movies and TV shows, including Grey's Anatomy, The Parkers, Next Friday, Along Came Polly, and My Wife and Kids, just to name a few. Currently, Whitley stars in Raising Whitley, a docu-series on the Oprah Winfrey Network following her and her friends as they raise a baby together.

Najah Hud, Promotions and Marketing Director for Davis Broadcasting, Inc. says, "The significance of these events are to provide a platform for women to come out and celebrate other women. Over the past 12 years, we've had amazing women to come out celebrate the life of women, and this year, it continues with breaking the chains."

Whitley told women you don't have to be afraid to ask for help if you need it. She also said that once you figure out what your dream is, don't wait. Go for it immediately.

Several ladies from WTVM News Leader 9 attended the luncheon. The event was sponsored by Davis Broadcasting, Inc.
