On the Road Advocating for the Advancement of Women
Over the past few weeks, Karen has been on the road representing Dell at several events that support the company’s Women Powering Business movement. In December, she joined 50 CEOs at the Catalyst CEO Summit in New York City. The theme of the summit, “Getting Past Stuck,” examined how to prioritize and tap the pipeline of high-potential, high-performing women for leadership roles.
On December 15, Karen joined Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, former Secretary of State Madeline Albright and International Monetary Fund President Christine Lagarde to launch The Women in Public Service Project.
|This critical initiative, sponsored by the U.S. State Department and Seven Sisters Colleges, unites thought leaders and educators from both public and private sectors to identify, create and advance a new generation of women committed to public service. As the technology partner of the initiative, Dell will provide equipment, technology consulting and social media training for program participants.|
Karen’s passion and commitment around these initiatives underscores Dell’s belief that women share a unique perspective and approach to business, public service and community development. As technology enables businesses everywhere to use data and reach customers in unprecedented ways, technology can also be a powerful tool for women to engage in leadership and improve quality of life for communities around the world.
