Women Who Light the Dark

A Conversation About Leadership: Women Who Light the Dark

DATE: Friday October 12th & Monday October 15

Women @ Sun sponsored 2 outstanding and inspiring events. A live event was held on Oct. 12th on the Menlo Park campus where we had approx. 80 people attended and Paola sold 58 books where 100% of her royalties will go to the Global Fund for Women. In addition a Webex event was held on Oct. 15th where approx. 30-40 people attended from other Sun locations. We had Terry McKenzie, Executive Sponsor to Women in the West & Sr. Director ,Global Employee Communications & Change Management, speak about the Women @ Sun organization and we had  Stans Kleijnen, former Sun Executive and Board Member of the Global Fund for Women speak about the Global Fund for Women. The highlight of the event was when Paola Gianturco, renowned photojournalist and author of the photographic essay book Women Who Light the Dark talked about some of the photo's in her book and the stories surrounding those photo's. We learned about remarkable women from around the world who have improved the lives of women and girls in their communities through extraordinary leadership and innovative strategies. It is safe to say that we all walked away inspired and amazed.

If you were not able to attend this event and you are interested in supporting the Global Fund for Women and reading about the amazing women in Paola's book you can purchase Women Who Light the Dark from independent and chain bookstores, as well as online booksellers around the globe. In addition all are listed on he BUY IT page of www.womenwholightthedark.com, 100% of Paola's royalties will be donated to the Global Fund for Women.
