The Women’s Empowerment Symposium is an annual program for high school juniors, seniors and college students.  Participants learn from female business leaders, athletes, and local and national education leaders within the inspirational setting of the Rose Bowl Stadium.

The Symposium, executed virtually due to pandemic restrictions over the past two years, welcomed over 2,000 attendees from 33 states and 7 countries.    It has been highlighted by keynote messages from influencers and iconic names such as former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, Olympian Lauren Gibbs, Basketball Hall of Famer and Broadcaster Ann Meyers Drysdale, World Cup Champions Brandi Chastain and Julie Foudy, and actress and activist Sophia Bush, to name a few.

While women are our main target demographic, it’s also important for men to join this movement. We need to empower each other. Young female and male leaders of the future have benefited from the Rose Bowl Institute’s approach to learning from sports values and experiences.

The fall virtual program will once again highlight the three pillars of the Rose Bowl Institute; Sportsmanship, Leader, and Citizenship through its key panel topics focused on empowering and inspiring.
