In honor of Women’s Entrepreneurship Week, Berkeley College will host special events that include panel discussions with prominent women leaders in New York and New Jersey. Women in Leadership: Breaking Barriers is part of a global initiative to elevate the voices of women on key issues. The event will focus on strategies for empowering women economically and politically, incubating the future of women entrepreneurs, social responsibility in business, and other important issues.
There is no cost to attend, but advance registration is required. Berkeley College will collect gently worn business clothing for Dress for Success at the events.
