The 2018 Summer Conference


Each year, nearly 200 Emma Bowen students gather in New York City at the Emma Bowen Foundation Annual Summer Conference to network, learn, and take their first steps toward a career in the media and technology industries.

This year’s conference will take place at New York University’s Kimmel Center and feature talks by charismatic leaders in the industry and conversations with EBF Alumni, as well as a few flagship events, including the Foundation’s Annual Power Networking event and the Foundation’s Annual Career Fair with some of the industry’s leading employers.
