The BE Conference Celebrates International Women’s Day

Today may be a day without women…But there will definitely BE women next week in Austin!

Continuing the focus on women’s issues marked by International Women’s Day, TheWrap is looking ahead to next week’s inaugural BE Conference, a special gathering of influential women in Media, Entertainment, Entrepreneurship and Technology.

You can BE a part of VIP networking, workshops, panels and mentor sessions with top industry executives, thought leaders and creatives in a first-class setting for networking, mentorship and ideas. You can also #BeBoldForChange and help forge a more inclusive, gender equal world and that starts with us.

The agenda will be full.

Here are some of the powerful female speakers and mentors that will be in attendance: Soledad O’Brien, award- winning TV journalist, Shannon Stubo, CMO, LinkedIn; Wendy Sachs, Author and Media Strategist, Co-founders & Co-CEO’s of WERK Annie Dean, and Anna Auerbach; Jesse Draper, Founder, Halogen Ventures; Susan Lyne, BBG Ventures; Sarah Avins, CDO, NY Presbyterian Hospital; Eddie Bauer guide and mountaineer, Melissa Arnot; Andrea Razzaghi, Deputy Director of Astrophysics at NASA; Cindy Whitehead, CEO, The Pink Ceiling, and many more!

We will start with a conversation with Kristen Bell, actress and activist entitled We Got Next. (The Future is Female)…And we will end the day reinforcing the same message in song and celebration.
