For me, this past week was full of meetings and events for technical  and professional women:

I have been a member of the ABI Advisory Board since 2005 and I come from our meetings refreshed and energized. Work done by my ABI Advisory Board committee over the years includes:

The highlight of this inspiring and busy week was shaking hands with one of my long-time professional heroes, Genevieve Bell. I have heard Dr. Bell speak in person and have watched her TED talk on “The Value of Boredom”. I was very happy to speak with her, however briefly. Her Women of Vision – Leadership Award acceptance speech was funny and memorable. My summary tweet was: “You have a moral obligation to make a better world if you can see it. You can do more.”
