Women’s Empowerment Lecture: From an arts manager to a business owner — a story of a female entrepreneur
In her talk, Irina will cover the story of her education, how she became the youngest executive producer of the Bolshoi, how she gave this all up for her dream to live and work in the US. She will also mention how family and personal issues forced her to come back to Russia, where she, at first, had to and then chose to be a business lady and how she adapted to combine motherhood with operating two businesses (a contract supply company and biotech lab), as well as running her own producing agency as a hobby.
