I'm Cheryl Posner, Executive Director of Chuck Jones Center for Creativity. I'd like to share a story that inspires me: It's about the women of Shiraz, Iran, who play in the Fars Women's Chamber Orchestra. Their conductor is probably the only man in the entire country who would be permitted to lead this all-female group. He's blind.
