What’s in a name?

While the focus of this symposium is geared toward encouragement, support, and promotion of young women conductors, it is by no means exclusionary to any individual. This event is an opportunity for individuals to advance their craft as conductors and to exchange ideas with other individuals who have an interest in topics related to women and their work as conductors. Acknowledging that women have slowly started to hold prominent leadership positions on the podium and in the academy, conversations around systematic inclusion, development, and growth will be included. 
 
This symposium is free and open to everyone, regardless of age, sex, gender identity, and/or gender expression. However, attendees are responsible for food, hotel, and travel. Suggestions can be found here and here
