“Women in Media: The Courage to Own Your Story”

As allegations of sexual harassment and the #MeToo campaign continue to be prominent in the news, women leaders of business, media and government made their voices heard during “Women in Media: The Courage to Own Your Story,” a two-day event hosted by Berkeley College in Manhattan, NY, and Woodbridge, NJ, on October 18 and 19, 2017.

Held in honor of Women’s Entrepreneurship Week, the forum brought together panelists to discuss how women are shaping the landscape of news and entrepreneurship, as well as the courage needed to overcome adversities women face regularly.

“But the victims of Harvey Weinstein, and all of the ‘Harvey Weinsteins’ before him, will be for naught if we don’t use this moment as a societal course correction,” said Melissa DeRosa, Secretary to New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, during her keynote address. “We must acknowledge and address that this behavior is not limited to one man or one profession or one political party. That’s why it’s so important that women speak up and speak out.”

“When women stand up for what’s right, we stand together,” said Angela Harrington, Vice President, Communications and External Relations, Berkeley College. “More than ever, we need to amplify women’s voices to impact change. Berkeley College is a place where important conversations like these can continue.”
