Berkeley WEW

Berkeley College Women’s Entrepreneurship Week (WEW) elevates the voices of women on key issues. Since 2015, WEW events have featured a wide range of diverse leaders in government, business and media who have shared resources for success in rebuilding the economy, fixing the broken rungs of the career ladder, and converting pivotal moments into opportunities. Topics center on advancing gender equity, business and entrepreneurship among Minority and Women-owned Businesses (MWBEs).
