WrapWomen’s third-annual BE Conference for mentorship is happening on the beach and a bunch of TV and movie stars, entrepreneurs and entertainment business leaders will be there, ready to inspire you!

“SMILF” show creator and lead actress Frankie Shaw will share her experience about going from making a narrative short to running a fully staffed series on premium cable.

Shaw joins actresses Danielle Macdonald (Netflix’s “Dumplin'”), Melanie Liburd (NBC’s “This Is Us”) and Jessica Parker Kennedy (The CW’s “The Flash”), along with BBC America Executive Director Courtney Thomasma, star venture capitalist Jesse Draper, Girlgaze founder Amanda de Cadenet, Flex Company CEO Lauren Schulte and a slew of other industry leaders — all speaking and mentoring at BE Con 2019.

The annual mentorship conference, happening in Santa Monica, California on Thursday April 25, promises to energize and connect Gen Z and millennial women to the career of their dreams in the fields of entertainment, lifestyle and media.

Macdonald will talk about “Building Confidence” at the event, while Liburd and Kennedy will mentor attendees in tailored breakout sessions for ambitious young women seeking career tips and insider secrets. Thomasma will guide BE Con goers on “BEcoming an Executive,” while Draper and Schulte will offer “Tips From Top Entrepreneurs” — and more!
