Women IT Execs Share Insights On Leadership And Risk Taking

Next week at IBM’s Innovate Conference I'll moderate a panel of highly accomplished women executives who will talk about their personal leadership mindset when taking business risks.  The panelists are:

- Cheryl Allison, Director, Raytheon Network Centric Systems

- Ellen Daley, Managing Director, Forrester Research

- Gina Poole, Vice President, IBM Rational Software

- Meg Selfe, Vice President, IBM Rational Software

- Karla Wallace, Senior Manager, General Motors

Note that Forrester’s Ellen Daley will be one of the panelists, joining this impressive group of women execs in IT. If you can’t catch us live at the conference (Tuesday, June 5th at 3:00 PM Eastern), then I hope you’ll join through streaming video (http://www.livestream.com/ibmrational) and Twitter at #ibminnovatewp.
