Just home from the Simmons Women’s Leadership Conference

Posted by gminks in women in tech | Tagged , , | 1 Comment

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.

    Hi, Gina,

    Enjoyed your tweets about the conference. Looking forward to reading more about it when you get the chance.

    When I first started thinking about AS and the workplace, one of the things that got to me was what you mentioned – talked as if the world is flat and we all communicate and listen on the same frequency.

    To get the maximum out of employees on the spectrum, this has to change.

    Glad you’re thinking along these lines.
