Join us and the incredible pioneer, Captain Brenda Berkman, at this very special Courageous Conversations event.

Captain Berkman began her career in the fire service after initiating and winning the federal sex discrimination lawsuit against the City of New York that paved the way for women to serve in FDNY. She then served as a firefighter for 25 years stationed in Manhattan and Brooklyn and was a first responder on 9/11. She retired as a Captain.

In 1996-97, Capt. Berkman served as a White House Fellow, the first professional firefighter to be awarded this prestigious leadership development fellowship in the history of the program. She has led both local and national women firefighters’ organizations.

Since retirement, she has pursued her passion for art through  printmaking, and volunteers as a walking tour guide at the 9-11 Memorial in New York City to honor her friends and colleagues who were lost on 9-11, and to help educate visitors.

Join us to hear her talk about her inspirational and moving life story.
