Women in Leadership: It’s About Time

In 2016, the Wellesley Centers for Women, in partnership with American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco, released the findings of its Women’s Leadership in Resident Theaters study. It found that women and people of color were severely underrepresented in leadership positions in League of Resident Theatres companies (which comprise some of the biggest theatres in the country). Inspired by that study, WAM Theatre in Lenox, Mass., hosted the inaugural Berkshire Leadership Summit, Oct. 27-29, a gathering for women aspiring to lead, or already running, theatres. Around 83 women were in attendance. As part of American Theatre’s ongoing coverage on the sea change of leadership transitions around the country, we invited three attendees to share their takeaways from the weekend, and their hopes for the future.
