A group of dynamic female leaders from Berkeley College gathered with like-minded successful businesswomen during the second annual Berkeley LeadHERship Brunch on March 10, 2017, at Berkeley College in Brooklyn, NY. Created by LaTia Sinclair, Director for Multicultural and Community Affairs, Berkeley College, the event was held as part of Berkeley College’s celebration of Women’s History Month, with the purpose of empowering women to achieve professional and personal success in their lives.

The Berkeley LeadHERship Brunch featured interactive workshops, musical performances, and panel discussions with businesswomen sharing advice on topics like leadership, entrepreneurship and brand identity. During the “In HER Shoes” panel, author, podcast host and life coach, Cara Alwill Leyba, emphasized the importance of collaborating to ensure the advancement of women collectively. “In a world of ‘Look at Me’ girls, be a ‘Come with Me’ girl,” she said.
