“Thank you also for tweeting about us being at the event. I didn’t realize that Innovation Women was so wonderfully hands-on with the speakers once they were selected. Things were great at the WGBH Boston Talks event. It was a great group of people, and I really enjoyed it. They should definitely keep using Innovation Women to find more female speakers. As you know, it was 3 guys and me! The event was extraordinarily well-run and well-planned. They gave us all the supports and guidance needed to talk on stage.”
