Berkeley College’s 2020 virtual Women Entrepreneurship Forum, “Change Leaders: Recalibrating the Future,” with media partner City & State , attracted more than 400 attendees on Wednesday, October 7, 2020. Women leaders from government and all sectors of business shared resources and suggestions for success in rebuilding the economy and moving women’s businesses, careers and lives forward.

This was the sixth consecutive year Berkeley College has hosted the event and it was the first time City & State was a media partner. Thank you to all of our speakers, panelists, moderators and attendees for a remarkable day. The best classrooms we can provide for our students are the conversations shared by the many women who participated in our Women’s Entrepreneurship Forum.

Women Entrepreneurship 2019 Recap

In 2019, Berkeley College hosted WEW events in two states, and stayed true to its mission of bringing the voices of the most diverse and accomplished women in business and industry to the table. The 2019 theme, Women in Leadership: Unleashing Your Superpowers, headlined events at campuses in Manhattan, NY, and Woodland Park, NJ, which were viewed by an audience of more than 400, either in person or through video livestreams.

Thirty-one panelists shared their experiences with how they surmounted obstacles and paved new pathways to success. Their determination to achieve pay equity, fix the broken rungs on the career ladder, earn a college education, and convert pivotal moments into opportunities will continue to motivate us.
