7Sisters LIVE@Pace

Lately there’s been a lot of talk about women’s issues, gender equality, and female empowerment, but has anybody really been listening? Or doing anything about it?

The 7Sisters project is proud to be partnering with Pace University’s Women’s Leadership Institute on October 15, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. to host 7Sisters LIVE@Pace at the Pace Student Union.

On the set of 7Sisters LIVE@Pace it’ll be all ears (and cameras). Finally, women like you will have a live forum to share thoughts, opinions, and experiences—AND BE HEARD—in a groundbreaking, live media event. If you are a Pace student, you can register here.

Women + Media = Power
Fast paced and unscripted, like social media but in person, 7Sisters LIVE Summits are a new, edgy talk-show-style conference for college-age girls. Combining a talk show setup with real-life experiences of the audience, each four-hour Summit features rotating panels of 5 girls sharing their stories in front of the audience, while female student filmmakers capture the excitement for online streaming and sharing.

Join the Conversation. Be Heard.
Share your feelings on what matters to you-from partying to peer pressure, body image to bullying, and fashion to food, we invite female students to share their thoughts on everything from the role of women in society, to how to shatter the glass ceiling to why the November elections matter.

Check out 7Sisters. We’re using the power of the collective to transform the narrative on what matters to girls.

About the film

We may think we know what it is like to be a woman in Saudi Arabia. Women must all cover up in public. Women cannot drive nor can they travel without the permission of a man. Women are restricted in work, and study, and social activities. But Saudi women, like women anywhere, are dreamers and fighters, eager to have a voice. The New York Times' Mona El-Naggar takes us inside the kingdom and introduces us to three proud and dynamic women, each determined to test the bounds of her society in different ways. The setting is a city council election in Riyadh, where in 2015 Saudi women were allowed to vote and run for office for the first time. While they could finally participate, though, they could not actually campaign in public. "Ladies First" offers a riveting and intimate view of the complex and largely inaccessible world of Saudi women, chronicling this remarkable first effort of women to claim a place on the political stage of their nation.

Following the screening, The Times's journalists who created the film will share how they achieved such rare access to ordinary Saudi women. They will also be joined by panel of experts to discuss the broader issues of democracy and women's rights in the Middle East.

Co-Presented by The New York Times and the American Museum of Natural History's Margaret Mead Film Festival.

A conversation with Claudia Chan, Founder of SHE Summit

What is SHE Globl Media?

S.H.E. Globl Media is a purposeful women’s media and education company that empowers women to lead their optimal personal and professional lives so they can become change agents in their own lives and the world. The name stands for “she helps empower the globe,” driven by our belief that the world needs women to lead, alongside men, in private and public sectors and civil society more than ever in history. Through 3 key initiatives that CELEBRATE (content), CONVENE (conferences) & CULTIVATE (curriculum) WOMEN, we expose women to healthy practices, diverse female role models, confidence building stories and tools for growth–while strengthening their consciousness of elevating other women.

What is SHE Summit?

S.H.E. Summit’s mission is to be the world’s most accessible women’s empowerment conference–exposing today’s leading role models, empowerment stories and strategies, women’s campaigns and supportive community to a global female audience who have the power to ripple affect change in their own lives, and for the betterment of other women and the world.  In its 4th year, THE global women’s leadership and lifestyle event is back with the most powerful roster of speakers, programming, attendees and partners yet. This is an unforgettable, onceayear experience designed to: Propel your next phase of personal and professional success; Shift you into your MOST EMPOWERED state of self; Realign you with authentic goals and values; add significant relationships to your network; and provide a supportive community for your goals! Are you… a student passionate about women’s issues? Part of a women’s group focused on advancement? Leading a women’s initiative inside a corporation? Running a business focused on improving women’s lives in some way? Or just a passionate advocate of women with a strong network? SHE Summit is your global event and microphone to plug your mission and movement into!

What inspired you to create the global women’s event, SHE Summit, through SHE Globl Media?

I have been immersed in the community of women my whole life (from all girl schools, to a having fearless entrepreneurial mom, to corunning a girlfriend entertainment company called Shecky’s for 9 years. But in 2010 at age 35, I opened my eyes to the state of women and stepped into a new consciousness of what it means to be a woman in today’s world. These issues became personal to me; I realized my responsibility to leverage my life and Godgiven gifts to improve this reality and convene other women to do so too. Channeling my Smith College days, the feminist in me reawakened and I started consuming every event, nonprofit, article and book I could find centered around the words “women’s empowerment, leadership, power, and potential.” I met an army of incredible women starting, innovating, empowering, leading, disrupting and often juggling multiple jobs while driving positive change for a cause.  It hit me, these female role models (executives, entrepreneurs, social change makers, mothers, innovators) were vastly underrepresented in mainstream TV shows, magazines and websites that today’s women and young girls consume. Media is a persuasive form of education and creator of consciousness, and since most programming covets the beautiful, thin and young. I am convinced it directly affects how our female generation perceives it’s personal self worth and potential.  So I decided to ditch security and devote all my being to creating S.H.E. Globl Media to be a purposeful women’s media and education company. The name stands for “she helps empower the globe”. I believe that if I feed women with enough content, conferences and curriculum role models, tools for growth, advice and mentorship they will become more successful at integrating their personal and professional lives, and therefore CHANGE THE WORLD! Watch my TEDx Talk on the #SHERevolution to understand me better, hear my perspective of the women’s revolution happening now, why I need your support and how we can work together .

What makes SHE Summit different from other conferences?

SHE Summit is the global transformational event for women. It provides one, uniting platform for them all to reach us and changing the conversation from "having it all" to truly finding selffulfillment.  Think of it like “The Big Top” for women’s empowerment; we cover leadership, global women's economic empowerment, selfcare, health and wellness, motherhood, and destroying the term 'having it all' and replacing it with vocabulary around fulfillment and integration. It's so exciting because this is the biggest the SHE Summit has ever been, with a huge diversity of topics and people all coming together for one purpose: to elevate women. The revolution is here.  We live in an unprecedented time. We collaborate in order to accelerate women’s empowerment.

What keeps you motivated to do what you do?

I dreamed of building a financially successful brand that would make empowerment accessible and impactful for women globally. The most powerful motivator was when I finished my last SHE Summit in June of 2014. I learned that women in over 100 countries watched the livestream and we reached over 250 million impressions on social media.  That brought a variety of emotions. Beyond the sheer joy and happiness high that immediately comes from the milestone, I have also felt vulnerable and scared. What would happen next?I have a sense of beginning and birthing something new, which is really exciting. I have stretched the potential of what I believe I can make possible.

What is the one piece of advice you would like all women to know?

We can only become what we believe. Your greatest power is to KEEP BELIEVING in your dreams and that you have what it takes.
