Meet a Few Remarkable Women
Meet a Few of the Remarkable Women and Women’s Power Circles Featured in
• Kim Moses, award-winning television producer, who, after working in the male-dominated arenas of government and sports, longed for intimate conversations with other go-getting gals. So, she decided to invite some motivated ladies over for dinner, marking the birth of The Vault. For the past three years, The Vault has met monthly and welcomed guests from Dr. Helene Gayle, president and CEO of CARE USA, to Nicole Feld, half of the first sister-team to produce Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
• The celebrated anchor turned thriller writer Kitty Pilgrim, who became a cheerleader among her female colleagues after CNN began downsizing in 2009. She started a club, Ladies Who Lunch, which meets for leisurely midday meals at posh Manhattan eateries, to help talented, driven out-of-work women multiply their individual connections and discuss employment opportunities. Pilgrim also wanted to give her high-powered peers a reason to dress up and feel fantastic about themselves.
• Mallun Yen, who, after being named head of the intellectual property (IP) legal department at Cisco Systems in 2009, made the daring move of reaching out to her female counterparts at companies like Google, Sun, Intuit, and eBay. It paid off in the creation of ChIPs, short for Chiefs in IP, a group of women who meet regularly to talk about work and life beyond it. In 2010, when Yen left Cisco for RPX, a provider of patent risk solutions, many ChIPs members became her clients and consistently supported her venture.
• Heidi Roizen, trailblazing technology entrepreneur and venture capitalist, who serves finger food, Rombauer wine, and pointers on risk taking at the girl-parties she hosts at her tony guest house in Atherton, CA, one of the wealthiest towns in the U.S. Her group includes Silicon Valley’s most influential and helped launched the West Coast career of Deborah Perry Piscione, co-founder and CEO of Desha Productions, a multimedia company that owns and operates Alley to the Valley™ and BettyConfidential.
