CE Week returns to NYC June 20-24, 2016, and Women in Consumer Technology’s exclusive fifth annual Forum 2016, “Design Your Life: A Road-map to Success Amid Change,” is scheduled for Tuesday, June 21. This year’s Opening Keynote Speaker is The New York Times Bestseller author, journalist, and popular lecturer, Gail Sheehy. In her 50 years as a writer she is the embodiment of this year’s Forum theme. She has interviewed thousands of women and men and written 17 books. From her 1976 book Passages, named one of the ten most influential books of our times by a Library of Congress survey, to her five other books on the passages theme revisit and illuminate the stages of adult life: New Passages, Understanding Men’s Passages, The Silent Passage (menopause), Sex and the Seasoned Women, andPassages in Caregiving. And in 2014 she turned the lens on herself: she had to write a memoir about her own passages. The book is called DARING: My Passages. Sheehy hopes it inspires young women to dream big, take risks, outlive the early failures, and build toward success with meaning and social purpose by midlife.
The Forum serves up a full day of sessions, topics, workshops and keynote speakers that relate to career enhancement for all corporate, small business and entrepreneurial women pursuing a career in consumer electronics.
