  • Harvardwood Presents: A Celebration of Women's History Month - Analyzing the Depiction of the Female Figure in Pop Culture

    Pacific Standard Time

    In celebration of Women's History Month, join Sibel Ergener Galindez (class of '89), Community Liaison at the new Zeiders American Dream Theater in Virginia Beach, VA for a discussion centered on analyzing the depiction of the female figure in pop culture through a 21st Century Lens. Listen to Sibel's podcast HERE and come ready to share your #ItHappenedOneNight moment. You will know what that is once you listen! This will be an interactive event. There is a question at the end of the podcast as well, and Sibel will have some prompts for us to find our own answer to that question. 


    ABOUT SIBEL ERGENER GALINDEZ

    Sibel Ergener Galindez lived and worked in Los Angeles as a professional actress & singer for 10 years, sharing the stage & screen with the likes of Doris Roberts, Mark Ruffalo, and Tony Shaloub, and developing her own cabaret. Her most notable role, Skates, a recurring character on the CBS TV drama JAG, led her to meet & marry a real life Navy JAG, who through his naval career brought her to Virginia Beach where she happily found The Z, her new creative home. Her work as an artist goes hand-in-hand with her work as community liaison, one informing the other, as she creates a bridge between The Z and the community through various programs to include: Creative Office Hours, The Word, Master Classes, and Community Events like #VBStrong and Race Let's Talk About It- through song in partnership with WHRO. She graduated cum laude from Harvard with a degree in English & American Literature.

    On March 15th at 4pm PST / 7pm EST, Harvardwood is thrilled to bring you a workshop with Betsy Capes of Capes Coaching, NYC's most reputable entertainment industry career coaching team! 

    Founded by Betsy and Jodie Capes in April 2004, Capes Coaching has earned its reputation as an industry leader by presenting a radically different way of approaching artistic careers, benefitting thousands of actors, artists, and creative professionals. Rather than provide you with stock answers or marketing pointers, the coaches at Capes know that there is no formula or “one right way” to achieve personal success.

    Betsy will cover how to create a plan of action to reach YOUR specific, personalized goals. Going against the industry trend of one-size-fits-all, quick-fix solutions, the Capes Coaching method stresses awareness before action and emphasizes long-term, sustainable careers in the arts.

    Capes Coaching's mission is to empower actors and artists by providing them with the knowledge, tools, and support they need to take control of their careers. 99% of the business is out of your control - but you can do amazing things if you focus on the 1% that is in your control.

    Attendees will learn about goal setting, strategic planning, mindset, networking, life/career balance and more!

    Betsy Capes (CPCC) is the founder and president of Capes Coaching, NYC’s most reputable entertainment industry career coaching team. Since the company's inception in 2004, Betsy and her team have helped over 3,500 artists and creative professionals cultivate and sustain fulfilling careers in the entertainment industry. Betsy received her coaching certification through the Coaching Training Institute, has a BFA from the University of Illinois, and has done postgraduate work in Drama Therapy at NYU.

  • Accelerating Transformation to Achieve Social Impact with Harvard Business School (HBS)

    Join Harvardwood, Harvard Business School (HBS), and World of Dreams on Feb. 26th at 12pm PST / 3pm EST...

    ...for a new event discussing building a resilient business that can simultaneously help us solve global social crises.

    It’s tough to launch and grow successful businesses when the world is changing at warp speed.

    We spent decades teaching MBAs and Executives at HBS how to use business analytics to design and build lean, agile businesses. But the current global health crisis and its resulting economic and social justice crises have challenged us to build resilient businesses that leverage the resources and capabilities of an ecosystem of partners that share a common vision, purpose and values. 

    Leading this discussion are Harvard Business School’s Baker Foundation Professor, Lynda Applegate; Dev Pragad, CEO of Newsweek; & World of Dreams CEO and Founder, Ron DeShay

    After a short introduction of key frameworks, we will discuss a new HBS case study: World of Dreams Entertainment Group: Building a Resilient Business. In addition to illustrating how DeShay is positioning World of Dreams to transform the Entertainment and Media industry, the case also provides an example of how to address the Social Justice crisis by providing a platform for developing shared vision, purpose, and values as we work together to Build a Better World. 

    “This is the most important and meaningful case study of my career. It has also been the most fun.”  Lynda Applegate, Harvard Business School Professor
