BFWW 2015 Keynote Speaker: Dani Shapiro - The Permission to Write

BFWW is honored to welcome acclaimed author Dani Shapiro for this special keynote presentation.

Isabelle Allende wrote multiple novels before she felt she could list “writer” as her occupation on her tax returns. Sylvia Plath once wrote that she was “a wife and mother of two small children” when asked by a publisher to describe herself. It should come as no surprise that women find it difficult to give themselves permission to find a voice, and to sing it. Novelist, essayist, memoirist, and beloved teacher Dani Shapiro has struggled with this question of permission herself, and will share the story of her own writing life, as well as offer inspiration and advice to all of us who are longing for the right to write.

Dani Shapiro is the bestselling author of the memoirs Devotion and Slow Motion, and five novels including Black & White and Family History. Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, Granta, Tin House, One Story, Elle, The New York Times Book Review, the op-ed pages of The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and has been broadcast on “This American Life”.  Dani was recently Oprah Winfrey’s guest on”Super Soul Sunday,” and was chosen by Arianna Huffington to speak at the New York City “Thrive” conference. She has taught in the writing programs at Columbia, NYU, The New School and Wesleyan University; she is co-founder of the Sirenland Writers Conference in Positano, Italy. A contributing editor at Condé Nast Traveler, Dani lives with her family in Litchfield County, Connecticut. Her latest book is, Still Writing: The Perils and Pleasures of a Creative Life.

Achieving Nonlinear Growth in Academia: Lessons for Your Company

"Achieving Nonlinear Growth in Academia: Lessons for your Company”

Linear growth defines the present as the baseline and seeks to grow as a percentage of the present, e.g. We will grow 5 percent gross revenue.  Nonlinear growth, however, defines the future as the baseline and seeks to make a radical shift from the past.  

Are you managing for linear growth or nonlinear growth?

In this series we will learn from masters of nonlinear growth.  Join us in an interactive workshop for CEOs and Business Owners interested in alternative and different ways to grow. We promise a nonlinear experience!

This is the first of a series on how CEOs can achieve nonlinear growth in 2015. Don’t miss out!Keynote Speaker: Dr. Christopher E. Hopey, President, Merrimack College

Dr. Christopher E. Hopey has been president of Merrimack College for four years. Dr. Hopey directed a range of investments and initiatives that have advanced Merrimack’s position as a highly ranked, internationally respected, selective comprehensive Catholic college.

Dr. Hopey engaged the College community in a collaborative strategic planning process to help Merrimack develop a clear vision for the future. The outcome was Merrimack’s strategic plan called, “The Agenda for Distinction,” which focuses on five strategic goals that altered the trajectory of the College by transforming it from an institution of promise to one of achievement.

Join us for a lively discussion in how this Academic Entrepreneur achieved the largest freshman class enrollment in its history this fall.

Great Decisions - Russia and the Near Abroad

As calls for closer ties with the EU failed to be met, Ukrainians took to the streets in in November 2013. As the movement later known as the Euromaidan, or “Euro Square,” pulled western Ukraine closer to its European neighbors, another powerful force threatened to tear away the country’s eastern half: Russia. Putin’s pushback against European expansionism has the West wondering: If Putin’s Russia isn’t afraid to take an aggressive stance against Europeanization in Ukraine, what does that mean for the rest of Russia’s neighbors?

Great Decisions - Privacy in the Digital Age

The idea of “privacy” has undergone significant changes in the digital age, as has the idea of privacy “harm.” Fearful of British spying, influence and intervention, the founding fathers granted citizens significant protections in the Constitution. Now, the tables have turned: Concerns about what some see as a U.S. “dragnet” and unwarranted privacy intrusions have compelled other countries to revamp their own privacy protections. Legislation, both at home and abroad, hasn’t kept pace with technological developments, leaving some wondering if privacy as we know it is long dead.

Great Decisions - Human Trafficking in the 21st Century

Human trafficking represents a multibillion in international trade per annum and continues to be one of the fastest growing criminal industries. While undeniably a global phenomenon, the U.S., as one of the world’s leading human trafficking importers, bears a special responsibility to combat this practice. The U.S. and the international community have adopted various treaties and laws to prevent trafficking, but to truly understand and combat the issue, they must find the root causes enabling traffickers to exploit millions of victims.

Great Decisions - India Changes Course

Fed up with corruption, dynastic policies and ineffective public services, Indian voters catapulted Narenda Modi and his Bharatiya Janata Party to power in the country’s 2014 elections. For voters, Modi embodied real change and an India that wasn’t stumbling, but running, to greatness. But for the U.S., change in India brings its own set of unknowns, heralding an age ruled by a prime minister new to national office and other policymakers who have been out of the public eye for a decade. Now, the U.S. has to determine how to best secure its interests as India asserts itself on the world stage.

We are women writers of a certain age, who grew up in the ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s. If our mothers lived this long, they were retired, if they had ever worked. Not only do we continue to write our lives, but we are navigating through the turbulent waters of the Internet, not to mention facing the challenge of publishing old-fashioned books and marketing them. A dialogue will follow the readings.

Attendance for this program is open to current graduate students, post doctoral fellows, and medical residents who are interested in careers in the life sciences industry. A Limited number of tickets are also available for early career professionals.

The Futures in Life Science (FILS) Seminar Series is a year-long event series, created in 2011 by Propel Careers, MassBio, and the MassBioEd, to promote the variety of career paths ranging from research and development to marketing and commercialization that exist in the Massachusetts Life Science Industry for individuals with graduate degrees. We believe that the career paths that exist in the Massachusetts Life Science Industry are numerous, exciting, and rewarding and that it is imperative that students considering these careers be well informed regarding the areas that their education and training are relevant.

We focus on covering the various functional areas in the life sciences sector including, R&D, consulting, commercial, business development, marketing, clinical, regulatory, medical affairs, bioinformatics, systems biology, modeling, pharmacoeconomics, reimbursement, patient advocacy, market access, finance, legal, and operations. Most graduate students and post-docs are well prepared to take numerous directions in their careers, and it is our intent to provide a comprehensive understanding of the aptitudes and work environments that are associated with specific career paths, so that the individuals who attend these events can make more informed career decisions. We are also big believers in the power of connections and networking, so each seminar will have specific time set aside to meet the presenters and the attendees and to develop relationships that will be an asset to those in attendance.


The program has an average attendance of 80 individuals per event. Each event has a panel discussion comprised of industry leaders who provide an overview of the life sciences landscape and various career opportunities which exist in the industry.

Great Decisions - Sectarianism in the Middle East

Many of the current conflicts in the Middle East have been attributed to sectarianism, a politicization of ethnic and religious identity. From the crisis in Iraq and Syria to the tension between Iran and Saudi Arabia, the struggle between Sunni and Shi‘i groups for dominance is tearing apart the region and shows no signs of abating. But for all the religious discourse permeating the conflict, much of its roots are political, not religious. How does sectarianism fit into a larger narrative of the Middle East? How have governments manipulated sectarian differences? And finally, what is the U.S. doing about it?

GMO OMG Free Screening!

Join us for our free screening of GMO OMG on Thursday, January 29 at 7:00PM at the EMW Bookstore.

Who controls the future of your food? GMO-OMG explores the systematic corporate takeover and potential loss of humanity's most precious and ancient inheritance: seeds. Has the global food system been irrevocably hijacked? Is there still time to reclaim its purity, protect biodiversity and save ourselves?

GMO-OMG director and concerned father Jeremy Seifert is in search of answers. How do GMOs affect our children, the health of our planet, and our freedom of choice? And perhaps the ultimate question, which Seifert tests himself: is it even possible to reject the food system currently in place, or have we lost something we can’t gain back? In GMO-OMG, the encroaching darkness of unknown health and environmental risks, chemical toxins, and food monopoly meets with the light of a growing global movement to take back what we have lost.

5:30-6:00 p.m. Reception

6:00-7:00 p.m. Private Screening of "Positively Beautiful"*

7:00 -7:45 p.m. Panelists

7:45-8:00 p.m. Q&A

In South Africa five strangers facing shame and potential death from AIDS form an unlikely friendship. It transforms them from ordinary citizens to extraordinary activists. They struggle against stigma and fear; suicide and isolation. At the height of the epidemic they form a network for people living with HIV.  As friends and family die, and leaders deny the existence of HIV, they fight harder.  Fifteen years later, against all odds, they are still alive. Their friendship becomes a remarkable story: a quiet victory of meaningful, beautiful lives in an evolving South Africa.  It gives strength in their struggles: of having children, fighting cancer, and being lesbian in South Africa.  Positively Beautiful is a story about life and love in the age of HIV.

* This is a private pre-screening of this amazing film. There will be a chance to tell the filmmaker what you think and help with the finishing touches of the film!

 

 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

A bit about our panelists:

Diveena Cooppan is a first time filmmaker from South Africa. Inspired by her work in HIV and her friendship with members of the HIV activist community, the idea of Positively Beautiful was conceived. Diveena and her friends recognized the need for a film that told the personal story of living in South Africa in the age of HIV.  One that was not created primarily to educate but rather to share with South Africans and the world the very real experience of living with a life threatening disease. So Diveena, formerly an Occupational Therapist working in psychiatry in South Africa and London and a public health practitioner stepped into the world of documentary film making to produce and direct Positively Beautiful. Diveena is also a veteran professional dancer and is currently based in Washington, DC.

Beginner Salsa Workshop 1 - Learn the Basics of Salsa! BAILAMOS!!!

Have you always wanted to learn Salsa but thought you couldn't? Maybe you think you've got two left feet? (I promise that you don't!) Or you thought it was too expensive? Well, now, here's your chance to learn to dance all the basic steps of Salsa in a single workshop for only $10. Where else could you learn all this for such a low price? Nowhere! But thanks to your friends at Free And Cheap Things in Boston (www.FACT-Boston.com), Boston's best Meetup group, you can learn it here. BAILAMOS!

First, NO PARTNER IS REQUIRED for this workshop. We will rotate partners throughout the event, so you do not need to bring your own partner. But if you *want* to bring a partner, you are both welcome to register. And you don't have to rotate partners if you don't want to.

Second, no prior dance experience is required. Absolute beginners are welcome!

So what will we cover in our two-hour workshop? We'll learn both the basic steps of Salsa and the basics of leading and following, as follows:

4 - 5pm : timing and flow of the dance, the basic steps (front and back basics, side-to-side basics, the right turn), the basic holding positions (open and closed), and the basics of leading and following.

5 -5:30pm : BREAK (for food, drink, phone calls, etc.)

5:30 - 6:30pm : review of the first hour's lesson, the left turn, and the cross-body lead (where the two dancers change places). And if things are going great, we'll cover the inside turn, where the follower does an extra left spin during the cross-body lead. We may even cover a few more things!

So, what will this course do for you? Once you master the steps in this course, you WILL be able to dance the basics of Salsa! This course will give you the proper foundation to learn far more advanced steps.
Don't wait! Sign up today!

The 9 bus runs from Broadway Red Line station in South Boston and stops right next to UAB. The 10 bus runs from Andrew Red Line station in Southie and stops right next to UAB, as well. Get down at the "K Street" stop from either one. And both the 9 and 10 buses start at Copley, too, so you can pick them up there. Just make sure to allow enough travel time, because we will hopefully start right on time! 

Please sign up in advance to get the $10 price. Walk-ins may be allowed as long as the ratio of leaders to followers is right, but it will cost double the price at the door. Yikes!

Lastly, please note that tickets stop selling at 2 PM on the day of the event. If you don't get a ticket online, you can try your luck as a walk-in. Ouch...
