In an ever-evolving world, where change is the constant, there emerges a beacon of hope and empowerment: EmpowerCon. After a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic, this one-day empowerment event is poised to make its triumphant return to the LA Convention Center on October 21, 2023. It’s not just an event; it’s a movement—a call to empower and transform lives.
At first glance, EmpowerCon may seem like just another conference, but it transcends the ordinary. Presented by the esteemed 501(c)(3) media enterprise, UNSUGARCOATED™ Media, this year’s event theme, “Empower Your Mind, Transform Your Life,” takes center stage, addressing the profound challenges of the post-pandemic era.
The Power of Inspiration and Empowerment
In the wake of recent global events, from the collective trauma of the pandemic to the financial crises that have left many grappling with uncertainty, society faces a unique set of challenges. The educational landscape is shifting, and mental health issues are on the rise. In this ever-changing world, EmpowerCon rises to meet these challenges head-on.
Aalia Lanius, the visionary behind EmpowerCon, is a multi-award-winning producer, writer, and the founder of UNSUGARCOATED™ Media. As a resilient survivor herself, Lanius embodies the essence of EmpowerCon, stating, “We believe that life’s most profound lessons are often hidden off the beaten path, in the unexpected challenges that redefine our journey. EmpowerCon is about transforming these challenges into opportunities, reclaiming our confidence and purpose, and embracing life without limitations.”
Originally launched in 2019 in Los Angeles, a city with deep familial ties for Lanius, the pandemic delayed her plans to host the inaugural event until now. Despite the challenges, Lanius has already received invitations to bring EmpowerCon to London, a testament to its purpose and impact.
A Celebration of Resilience
EmpowerCon is not just about surviving; it’s about celebrating the resilience of the human spirit. The event has a history of attracting esteemed speakers, including Oscar and Emmy award-winning film producers and world record holders. In previous years, luminaries such as Michael Uslan, the Batman film Originator and Executive Producer of Oscar-winning “JOKER,” Norma Bastidas, Ultra-Athlete & 1st female to break the Guinness World Record for the longest triathlon in history and survivor of human sex trafficking, and Phillip Andrew Barbb, 2x Emmy-nominated TV Producer and Author, have graced the stage.
This year’s lineup is equally impressive, featuring Larry Namer, Co-Founder of E! Entertainment, Sean Swarner, a two-time terminal cancer survivor and the subject of Emmy-nominated “True North: The Sean Swarner Story,” and Jennifer Gimenez, actress (Vanilla Sky, Blow) and model turned Addiction Recovery Advocate, among others who will inspire and empower the audience.
EmpowerCon is a testament to the indomitable spirit of the human race. It’s about showcasing inspirational leaders who have weathered life’s storms and emerged stronger. The event also features empowering performances that touch the soul and remind us of the boundless power of the human spirit.
Facilitating Crucial Discussions
EmpowerCon doesn’t stop at surface-level inspiration; it delves deep into society’s critical issues. Interactive Q&A sessions provide a platform for candid conversations, where thought leaders engage in meaningful dialogues with the audience. It’s about breaking down barriers, building bridges, and seeking solutions.
The Intersection of Mental Health and Success
In an age where the pursuit of success often overshadows mental health, EmpowerCon places mental well-being at the forefront. The workshop on the intersection between mental health and success is a pivotal step toward redefining our approach to achievement. It’s about finding success that aligns with our mental and emotional well-being.
