About The ESSENCE Girls United (GU) Disruptor Summit

This year’s summit will be a safe space for young Black women, girls, and gender-expansive youth to come together and fellowship for a day filled with panels, networking, activations, and more. 

The Era of Disruption” serves as this year’s theme, and an invitation to Zillenials to continue to use their voices to break the mold by utilizing their individual paths, ideas, and trends to celebrate all aspects of the Black experience.

This year’s GU Disruptor Summit will touch down in the ATL for a full day of conversations, workshops, and on-site activities such as photo experiences throughout, the kick-off of GU Office Hours, speed mentoring sessions to get connected with key industry players, and the Soko Marketplace where attendees can shop and support a mix of Black-owned businesses.
