The Berklee Women's Empower Symposium aims to strengthen the Berklee community while providing the student body access to diverse female role models in the entertainment, media and music business. We invite all students to take part in this initiative and learn what it takes to become leading entrepreneurs in this ever-changing industry. The Symposium, themed Portraits of Success, will showcase different stories to inspire men and women alike, and demonstrate that differences are strengths. Embracing this diversity empowers all of us as a community and as individuals. Students of today are the leaders of tomorrow: changing what we teach and how we teach it has the power to impact an entire industry, and eventually larger social paradigms. We hope for a day when events like these are no longer necessary. Until that day comes, Berklee will continue to make a space for diversity to flourish.
