“Society is a reflection, in part, of our cultural and creative industries, so for me being in the music business is also a form of protest, advocacy, [and] human rights work."

Binta Brown '95, Way Back Wednesday

Join the Athena Alum Network on Tuesday, April 18, 2023 at 6 pm for a fireside chat with Binta Niambi Brown '95 about her shift from a successful career in law into uncertainty - and ultimately, success once again - and how your work can be your stand.

Today, Brown, the founder of omalilly projects, a full scale talent management company with record label and film/tv production services capacity, and consultancy, spends her days driving change in the entertainment industry. When do you know if you should make a change, and how do you do it once you've decided?

Moderated by Reni Calister '11.

This event is free and open to members of the Barnard/Columbia community. You must RSVP to attend.

SPARK is a series of provocations and conversations designed to ignite your thinking about change and how it happens. Through interviews, book talks, field trips, film screenings, and more, you'll get to know the women and nonbinary people leading change in a wide range of areas, and learn more about the hard, but important, work of building a better future. SPARK is open to all members of the Barnard community, including faculty, staff, alumnae, and friends of the college.

Funding for SPARK is provided by The Harnisch Foundation.

About the organizer

The Athena Center for Leadership 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.
