WITI Boston Regional Network
The Evolving Role of Women’s Leadership in Technology

Wednesday, November 17, 2004
6:00 p.m - 8:00 p.m.

As business, technology and the world have changed, so too have women's roles in business leadership. Having had careers in sports, public education, small business ownership and consulting Sharpnack's experience has led her to help others produce breakthrough results in all areas of their lives. "I believe that we are all seeking work-life integration rather than "balance" and I work with people (and myself) to fulfill that commitment."

Come learn what several hundred alumnae women from such companies as Apple Computer, Boeing, Compaq, the Gillette Company, Hewlett-Packard, Levi Strauss & Co., and Wells Fargo now know and use every day to be more successful in their daily lives.

With her academic background in linguistics, business, and psychology, Sharpnack guides participants through a process of unlearning what they assume to be true about what they can (and can't) accomplish.
