Spill the Tea
Spill the Tea is a networking, empowering, and therapeutic event hosting over 50 mothers. We challenge statistics by creating a transparent and educational space for African American mothers. This year we’re happy to announce our passion panel. A panel of mothers who’ve utilized their passions to create a life in their respective careers and professions. This evening experience includes an exclusive shopping experience from local businesses, headshots for mother’s Linkedin profiles, and a motivational message from keynote speaker, Trina Small.
Spill the Tea is a safe space for mothers to discuss the secrets, successes, and struggles of motherhood. Encompassing a group of mothers from all different walks of life, we're covering it ALL! Nothing is off limits. CHICmom firmly believes in creating transparent experiences for mothers to learn, empower and educate one another. Spill the Tea is an evening where mothers gather together to lean on each other to take life by storm while not sacrificing our dreams and goals, despite being a mother.
Spill the Tea will take place in the hometown of CHICmom's National Chapter, Detroit, Michigan. Detroit is known as a city that encompass go-getters, dreamers, and people who don't take no for an answer. CHICmom's are no different.
