Intersections Film Series: “The Empowerment Project”

Join the Penn State Sustainability Institute for its spring 2023 lineup of the Intersections Film Series, integrating stories of community resilience in the face of sustainability challenges around the theme of “Building Better Bonds.”

On March 1 at 7:00 p.m., we will be screening online The Empowerment Project, a moving journey led by six young female filmmakers seeking out stories of women overcoming obstacles and a lack of role models to become leaders in a wide array of initiatives from beer, making to aviation, mathematics to ballet. As part of an engaging month-long road trip across the country, they learn that the only limitation women face is the story that they tell themselves—once you are willing to try and not fear failure, anything is possible.

All films in the series are free and open to all students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members. All events will be streamed online to allow participation from all Penn State campuses, neighboring communities, and alumni. Pre-registration for all events is required and can be completed at the Intersections website.

Post-film discussions focus on finding solutions to problems and connecting Penn Staters to resources and opportunities to get involved on and off campus.

The series is co-presented by WPSU with significant programming support from the Center for Global Workers’ Rights and Penn State Water Consortium.
