Women Influencing the Arts is a speakers series providing a safe space for established women artists and arts leaders to discuss and share challenges and triumphs women face in the field with young women studying the arts and/or those who are interested in pursuing a career in the arts. My goal is to foster honest and open dialogues, in a productive environment. The series is intended to be informative and also positive and inspirational: the series will celebrate women’s strength, perseverance, and tenacity through the personal stories of the speakers who participate.

Women Influencing the Arts series is sponsored by the Women's Center at Virginia Tech and the School of Performing Arts.
