BAY VIEW, MI – On Wednesday, July 13 at 4pm, Bay View will spotlight women in a summer of programming that centers on the challenges, opportunities, and stressors that women face at home and at work. The conversation, simply named Empowered: Achievement, Balance, and Career, will feature a distinguished panel of powerful leaders for a  discussion of relevant topics for all those struggling to make sense of this human experience and the way our work and personal lives are interwoven. A discussion takes place in air-conditioned Voorhies Hall on campus, an intimate 200-person theatre, and is free to the public. The campus is encircled by Encampment Ave., and can be accessed from US 31 just north of Petoskey.

The panel will feature Julie Holder, CEO of JFH Insights and executive coach as well as former CEO of Dow Chemical; Deb Fellows, Editor in Chief at MyNorth Media & Editor of Traverse Magazine;  Molly Kircher, owner of Lake Affect & Senior VP of Brand Development for Boyne Resorts; and Gail Gruenwald, Executive Director of Tipp o’ the Mitt Watershed Council. The conversation will be a lively look at numerous issues and is geared to be universal in its themes, so both men and women are encouraged to attend. Barb Stonewater, a gifted teacher and administrator, will facilitate the discussion. As a bonus for attendees only, the final dress rehearsal of Evita, which begins at 7pm in Hall Auditorium, will provide a sneak preview at this entertaining and enlightening look at one extremely powerful woman and the hurdles she overcame. Dining options between the 4pm panel discussion and the dress rehearsal include Terrace Inn and Bay View Inn, both walkable from the campus.

The Bay View Music Festival runs from June 19 through August 18, and features pop, jazz, classical, chamber music, and theatrical productions throughout the summer on the campus just outside of Petoskey. The public is welcome to all musical events, as well as the myriad of educational, religious, and recreational activities offered by the Bay View Association, the festival’s parent organization.

There is no cost for admission to the panel, but concerts and productions presented by Bay View are all online at www.bayviewfestival.org. General questions should be directed to Chris Ludwa at 231-347-4210 or email sent to [email protected]
