As the keynote speaker at Women’s Empowerment this year, the Washington, D.C. native addressed a packed arena where the inquiry of the day was “How to Build a Lasting Empire?”

Henson credits the importance of “Togetherness” with helping establish her empire. She recalls a group of girlfriends that have had her back no matter what. “You can’t build an empire without your foundation and for me, that’s my sisters, my family,” notes Henson. She also credits God with being central to her foundation. Without God, “you’re screwed.”
