Trish Tierney (Executive Director of the Institute of International Education in San Francisco) is the editor of a new IIE-published book called Women in the Global Economy: Leading Social Change. Many of the TechWomen mentors and program staff joined Trish with authors Nuket Kardam and Fredric Kopp (both from the Monterey Institute of International Studies) and social media expert Beth Kanter, to celebrate last night at IIE’s penthouse offices near the Lion Gate entrance to Chinatown.
My husband and I enjoyed hearing the authors speak about the book, seeing our IIE and 2011-2012 TechWomen colleagues and friends, discussing plans for the upcoming TechWomen-2013 program (selection of mentees from the Middle East and Africa is going on now), what I am doing at MentorCloud and John’s new job at EVault, and answering questions from potential TechWomen mentors. The rooftop view at sunset is lovely! Mimi Hills and my husband won the door prizes – a copy of the new book in an handmade bag. I look forward to reading it.
