Women in Technology International’s (WITI) San Diego chapter has formed a strategic alliance with Hera Hub, a coworking space for female entrepreneurs.
Hera Hub provides work, meeting, and event space to women in a variety of industries, including technology. Carey Harrington Adolfsson, Director of the WITI San Diego chapter, states,“Hera Hub gives me the distinct honor of being in constant proximity to great women and resources. Throughout the last month we have found services and suppliers for a multitude of business needs. You can't overplay the importance of Hera Hub in the women's entrepreneurial community.”
On Wednesday, October 26th WITI is hosting a special event featuring Margaret Heffernan, former CEO, and author of the new book “Willful Blindness”. Heffernan will be leading a discussion about the consequences of denial and how ignoring facts has lead to the housing bubble burst, the great recession, and large scale ponzi scheme ignorance. Included in the discussion will be methods to combat denial and arguments for engagement rather than deflection.
The event will take place at Hera Hub (9710 Scranton Road #160, Sorrento Valley) on Wednesday, October 26, 2011 from 5:30pm to 8:30pm. Attendance is open to both men and women and registration is available online at witi.com/sandiego.
About Hera Hub
Hera Hub (herahub.com) is a serene, café-style work and meeting space for accomplished, like-minded entrepreneurial women.
Much like an incubator or think-tank, this model provides a professional place to focus and collaborate, while giving women the visibility and access to the tools they need to build successful businesses. Hera Hub offers hourly, daily, and monthly membership options for freelancers, independent consultants, entrepreneurs, nonprofits, and authors. The first of three locations is a 5,000 square foot office conveniently located just off of the 805 freeway & Mira Mesa Boulevard at 9710 Scranton Road, Suite 160, in Sorrento Valley.
