WHAT: In honor of Women Entrepreneurship Week, Berkeley College will host special events that include panel discussions with prominent women leaders in New York and New Jersey.
WE CAN ASSIST REPORTERS AND CREWS WITH SCHEDULING INTERVIEWS, VIDEO AND PHOTOGRAPHY.

Women in Leadership: Unleashing Your Superpowers is part of a global initiative to elevate the voices of women on key issues. The event will focus on strategies for empowering women in business, marketing, media and journalism, and inspiring the next generation of women entrepreneurs. Attendees will meet a dynamic group of women leaders from a range of industries and professional organizations that support women and minority-owned businesses.

“Through Women Entrepreneurship Week at Berkeley College, we have established a diverse platform for exchanging ideas and experiences that educate and motivate our students to network and activate their voices for the good of their futures and of our society,” said Angela Harrington, Vice President of Communications and External Relations at Berkeley College.

There is no cost to attend. Berkeley College will collect new and gently used business clothing at the events for the student Career Clothing Boutique.
