Women in Consumer Technology’s exclusive fifth annual Forum 2016, “Design Your Life: A Road-map to Success Amid Change,” took place on Tuesday, June 21. This year’s Opening Keynote Speaker was 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.
