The Inspiring Success series for young men and women are signature events developed by Mayor Lovely Warren to further cultivate the greatness and potential of young men and women in the City of Rochester. These FREE events provide the opportunity to gain invaluable life skills through networking, as well as access to premier educational opportunities.

Mayor Warren’s vision for The Inspiring Success series for young men and women came after the City of Rochester’s sponsorship of Inspiring Beauty: 50 Years of Ebony Fashion Fair. The Inspiring Beauty: 50 Years of Ebony Fashion Fair exhibit 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 Inspiring Success Series.
