The Berklee Women’s Empower Symposium aims to strengthen the Berklee College of Music community while providing the student body access to diverse female role models in the entertainment, media, and music business.

The theme for this year’s Berklee Women’s Empower Symposium is Portraits of Success. There are many stoic women out there carving their own career paths — ones who have had to jump over many hurdles to get to where they are. As the next generation of leaders, and students in the global entertainment and music business masters program, we see these women as empowering role models, but often feel they are overlooked — even in today’s society. This one-day event will expose students from all programs to leading power players in entertainment, media and music.

All students at Berklee College of Music, Valencia campus, are encouraged to attend to learn what it takes to become leading entrepreneurs in this ever-changing industry.

Reserve your spot today at the Berklee Women's Empower Symposium!
