Anita Borg Women of Vision Awards

Last month I was fortunate enough to attend the Anita Borg Women of Vision dinner.  I have gone every year for the last few years and I always find it SO inspirational. The dinner was to honor three women kicking ass and taking names in innovation, leadership, and social impact. Arianna Huffington was the keynote speaker and was really engaging and funny.

The line up
One thing that struck me was that of the 3 winners - all three had fathers that were engineers/scientists and 2 of the 3 had mother's who were also scientist/engineers.

I have posted the two talks I found most inspiring, along with the bio video on one of the winners (seriously - where did she find the time to do so much)!

Seriously - watch them!!
