I was able to attend the Simmons Women’s Leadership Conference courtesy of EMC’ Office of Diversity. It was wonderful. I connected with a Senior Manager from my part of the world (Florida), ladies from RSA, ladies from our IT and Shared Services depts.
I also spent alot of time with fellow EMC blogger Polly Pearson.
I have some video I need to edit, and some better coverage of the conference, but I am still processing some of the things I heard. I tagged my tweets with #swlc, so did other EMC ladies. Check it out in a twitter search.
As a preview for what I’ll blog about…there were a couple of speakers that really got to me. One speaker talked about leading but talked as if the world is flat and we all communicate and listen on the same frequency. And an amazing Southern woman put a spotlight on why culture and family and community matter so very much.
