Women Tech Council: Women in Innovation Networking Event
On May 7, 2008 the Women Tech Council presented the first annual Women in Innovation Networking event with featured speaker Sharlene Wells Hawkes CMO of StoryRock.
The event was entitled "Think Big: Marketing Strategies of a Small, High-Tech Company" and was held in the Thanksgiving Point Garden Room. I believe the event registered 250+ people (mostly women) and provided a unique opportunity to network with other women and learn from the experiences of other women in technology innovation.
The message from the keynote Sharlene Wells Hawkes and a message that is the central theme of previous, present and future events is "Do what you want with your future and your career and don't let anyone box you into their idea of what you are". This message resonates with other messages of "don't let anyone tell you no" and " become self aware".
The Women Tech Council is a community of women that encourages women to employ forward thinking strategies generating support for all women.
Women helping women, I like that !
