May 2 at 5 p.m. at the Post at 750, a talk called Creating Opportunities for Women in Opera features a panel of industry experts. And the same evening, at 7 p.m., What Role Do the Arts Play in Addressing Homelessness happens at SFU Woodward’s, headlined by Billy Guinness and Rhoda Rosen of Chicago’s Red Line Service.
