Tia Mowry Talks Women’s Empowerment at NBA All-Star Weekend Summit

Have you seen Tia Mowry-Hardrict lately? How can you not? One half of the ’90s sitcom “Sister, Sister," she is currently taping the second season of the Netflix series “Family Reunion,” recording her YouTube channel of life hacks called “Tia Mowry’s Quick Fix” and busy kick-starting Anser, her new supplements company that launched in January.

Granted, the last couple of times we checked in with the Hardricts, it was a bit focused on Tia’s husband Cory, a Chicago Southland native, and his latest acting jobs. But this past weekend — NBA All-Star Weekend — Mowry-Hardrict was in town to participate in the National Basketball Wives Association’s (NBWA) Women’s Empowerment Summit, “Unsung Sheroes.” Showing shorter locs (after her “It was time! #shorthair #dontcare” Jan. 31 Instagram post), the author and mom of two (Cree, 8, and Cairo, 1) was on hand to inspire women and talk entrepreneurship.

“Anything that is empowering or pushing women forward … I’m all for it,” Mowry-Hardrict said. “When she (Mia Wright, NBWA president) heard what I was doing with Anser and my wanting to inspire women, I believe that’s how this came about.”

We talked with Mowry-Hardrict about her multifaceted life — one that she refers to as “good chaos” — as well as how she defines female empowerment, her drive to create positive content in a time of negativity and adding some diversity to the Hallmark Channel.
