A few months back, we took to the streets of Los Angeles to talk about being Urban by Nature. We gathered a few hundred Angelenos for a night of discussion, drinks and networking.

Well, we’re taking our talents back east, heading to our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., for another event curated by The Root, VSB and The Glow Up, and sponsored by Toyota! This time we’re focusing on Boss Moves! Are you a boss? Do you have what it takes to be a boss? What does it even mean to be a boss?


In this conversation featuring individuals at the top of their respective games we talk about what it takes to be a leader of the pack and rise above the ordinary into the extraordinary. This conversation will feature leaders and trendsetters from the world of business, media, politics and more.

Come see us this Thursday, July 19th, at Longview Gallery, located at 1234 9th Street, NW, in D.C., from 7-10 p.m. Our featured panelists include, communications leader Mercy Chikowore; entrepreneur and influencer Kevin “Unkle Scooty” Hallums; Managing Editor of The Glow Up, Maiysha Kai; Determined by Design’s Kia Weatherspoon; and VSB editor and co-creator Damon Young, each a boss in their own specific way.

As always, the event is free with RSVP, which you can do here!


We can’t wait to hang with you and engage you all in this talk about leveling up with some of D.C.’s heaviest hitters!

Check out the video from our last VSB + The Glow Up event in Los Angeles! And RSVP for the event on July 19th!
