Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) June 09, 2013
Watermark, a community of executive women who come together to connect, develop and advocate for one another, will host best-selling author Pamela Ryckman at a gathering of women leaders in Palo Alto on June 19.
Ryckman has spent three years studying how women help women. She has observed ambitious women from all over the country harness their collective wisdom to change the way power is allocated and business practiced. Women’s networks are taking charge in every major American city, and “Stiletto Network” is the first book to shed light on this groundbreaking movement. Huffington Post lauds “Stiletto Network” as “a beautiful mosaic of how women are changing the rules of business to suit themselves and their lifestyles,” and Publishers Weekly calls the book “essential reading for any woman who wishes to further her career while remaining true to herself.” By not only calling attention to changing tides in the female workforce, but also championing the cause, Ryckman plays an important role at this critical moment in women’s history.
On June 19, Ryckman will discuss how the women of Stiletto Networks collaborate to realize their dreams or support a cause, lift each other up and push one another forward, and help every Stiletto woman achieve her goals through proven networking methods.
The Watermark Speaker Series features a variety of thought and opinion leaders on subjects of interest to its executive audience. Recently featured speakers include Lynne Twist, best-selling author of the award-winning book “The Soul of Money," and Justice Sonia Sotomayor, first Hispanic and third woman to serve on the Supreme Court.
