“It took me quite a long time to develop a voice, and now that I have it, I am not going to be silent.” –Madeleine Albright

The Women’s March
and now….the BE Conference for the next generation of empowered women, who are game-changers in their prospective industries.
I’m constantly in awe of the all of women I’ve met in my life. They are CEOs, politicians, producers, activists, scientists and entrepreneurs and much more. But first and foremost, they are just like you. They all started young and ambitious, looking for ways to make a difference and get ahead in a male-dominated society.
I wouldn’t be where I am today without the mentors who graciously imparted their wisdom, guided me with tough love and gave me a shot. Helping others take the next steps in their career is the most meaningful move I can make right now beyond the journalism we do every day at TheWrap.
Among women striving to succeed, mentorship feels more potent when it comes from another woman who has been there.
The Women’s Movement is powered by those who uplift each other and who understand that as a collective team, we are a force for good and uplifting everyone.
That’s why I started BE conference. To create a space for like-minded women who want to connect, mentor, be mentored and collaborate with one another. It’s become my passion to give back to the next generation of young professional women. My vision is to see all the attendees of the BE Conference, no matter your industry or skill set, meet with powerful and accessible role models you need to get to the next step and absorb the inspiration to dream big. I’ve gathered my executive level friends and colleagues to raise up the next generation of empowered women for 2 days of empowerment among 300+ women.
And this is just the start.
At BE, we’ll be hosting fireside chats, remarkable keynotes, breakout sessions, networking and mentorship sessions, and many other ways for our attendees to get inspired and connect.
“BE” is about being the best possible version of yourself. When you are surrounded by others who see your vision and believe in you, this comes effortlessly. We are looking forward to learning more about each and every one of you and finding ways to make your dreams a reality.
