Athena Power Talks are poignant conversations with today’s thought-leaders discussing the most pressing and provocative topics on women and leadership. This semester, we welcome Sheila Nevins, president of HBO Documentary Films, for a conversation with Barnard President Debora Spar. Widely regarded as the most powerful executive in the documentary community, Sheila Nevins is often described as the “de Medici of Television” for her unwavering support of nonfiction filmmakers. Projects bearing her imprimatur have won 24 primetime Emmy Awards, 28 news and documentary Emmy Awards, 23 Academy Awards, and 35 George Foster Peabody Awards—including, in 1999, a personal Peabody for being “one of the true independent spirits in television today, whose passion and vision consistently create excellence.”
When & Where
The Athena Center for Leadership Studies at Barnard College
The Athena Center for Leadership Studies at Barnard College was established in fall 2009 with an ambitious goal – to create a world renowned center dedicated to the advancement of women leaders. Not just any women leaders, but women who are visionary, bold, courageous, resilient and globally aware; women who embrace diversity and are determined to make the world a better place.
We are building a world where leadership is constantly re-imagined to reflect the needs of women and society and where it is commonplace for women to attain and exercise power.
