SIM Philadelphia Breakfast & Panel Discussion

Wednesday, May 11 2011 7:30am - 10:30am Eastern Time Presented by:


SIM Phildelphia and SIM Women are partnering on a CIO Breakfast “Board Bound!” on May 11th.  The focus of the breakfast will include ideas and encouragement on how to be deliberate in obtaining board positions.  We have assembled a panel of new faces and fresh perspectives: two CIOs to discuss their efforts and board experiences, as well as, a search professional and executive coach to discuss the value board experience brings to an executive career.  While it’s always wonderful to gather together and network, this is also an opportunity to learn from each other.  We’ll learn the differences between corporate and non-profit experience, as well as paid and unpaid board roles, and how to gain notice from the board community. In addition we’ll have tips and “ground floor” tactical approaches for those who are working their way up the executive ladder; it’s never too early to begin laying the groundwork for that board position!


Visibility is a key component in promoting women in technology and demonstrating that an IT moniker doesn’t make us less of a business leader; it also holds true for the men in our profession.  We need successful executives to step into the spotlight and be the examples future leaders can emulate. An overriding theme inside SIM Women has always been: take action.  After each of our previous events, attendees shared how they enjoyed the networking aspect of the evening, and how they were encouraged by the number of true peers in attendance. Now is the time to recognize the importance of networking, learning from that network, and translating your good intentions into action.  A board role validates your business acumen as no other experience can, but it’s a world unto itself, so attend this event to learn how to be “Board Bound!”
