“How to Become Self-Made” is a workshop stemming from Nely Galán’s New York Times bestselling book on the entrepreneurial mindset, Self Made: Becoming Empowered, Self-Reliant, and Rich in Every Way. In this unique workshop, Galán will share her philosophy on what it takes to start and run a business, beginning by working for others, while always thinking like an owner. She will focus on describing concrete steps that women, people of color and members of under-represented groups can take to cultivate the attitude, create the plan and execute the strategy and tactics required to make the dream of financial empowerment and independence a reality.

Nely Galán is a self-made media mogul. Dubbed the Tropical Tycoon by the New York Times Magazine, she was the first Latina President of Entertainment for a U.S. television network (Telemundo). She is an Emmy Award-winning producer of over 700 episodes of television in English and in Spanish. She was the first Latina to appear on the television juggernaut Celebrity Apprentice. Galán is a sought after motivational speaker who has spoken at companies such as Coca-Cola, General Electric, American Express, Chase, Walmart, and tech companies such as Google, EBay, Facebook, Uber, Adobe, SAP and many more.

The Women’s Leadership Society (WLS) at USC Annenberg M{2e} provides support for female professional advancement at the intersection of technology, media and entertainment. 

This event is the first in a three-part speaker series on Women & Entrepreneurship sponsored by WLS for Spring 2018. 

RSVP requested. The workshop will take place in the Wallis Annenberg Hall Auditorium from 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. with a reception and book signing to follow in the Wallis Annenberg Hall Forum from 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
