What a great night…
A few weeks ago, I had the distinct pleasure of being a sponsor at the Anita Borg Institute’s 2010 Women of Vision Award. What a fantastic night it was! More than 800 people attended to celebrate the achievements of these phenomenal women. I was honored to share the evening with my fellow women leaders and visionaries. I was in awe of the many accomplished women technologists from such diverse displines who attended. I was most impressed by the award recipients and the event was a major success. What perhaps thrilled me the most was sharing the experience with the five lovely men who I was honored to have as guests at my table. None of them had ever been to an event where they were surrounded by so many highly accomplished women, technologists and leaders. I firmly believe their experience will impact their perceptions about women for the rest of their lives. I hope they will share their experience with their daughters and teach them that, if they put their mind to it, they can succeed at ‘whatever’ their heart’s desire is. It was truly magnificent and inspiring and I encourage everyone to go to www.AnitaBorg.org for more details on the event.
