Digital Drop-In: Glassbreakers
Glassbreakers is a safe, supportive and dynamic online community for professional women. By connecting women online who can provide peer-to-peer mentorship for each other, we hope to create mutually beneficial relationships for our users offline as well. Glassbreakers is an inclusive community for any person (cis or trans) who identifies as a woman.
Eileen Carey is the CEO & Founder of Glassbreakers, a software company based in San Francisco. She previously led Communications for MarkMonitor, an enterprise software company acquired by Thomson Reuters. Prior to MarkMonitor Eileen was a spokeswoman and communications manager for Citigroup in New York. She holds an MBA in International Marketing from Fordham’s Graduate School of Business and a BA in creative writing from the University of Maryland.
She discussed how Glassbreakers got from an idea to a funded, revenue-generating software company with a launched product (all in the male-dominated world of Silicon Valley).
This event was co-sponsored by the Tuck Initiative for Women.
About Digital Drop-Ins (DDIs)
The Digital Strategies’ DDI videoconference series allows our MBA Fellows the chance to have intimate conversations with key technology leaders. Hour-long sessions focus on a particular topic or range of topics of interest to the fellows, and enable the small group to participate in an engaging discussion about a key element of technology and how it impacts or drives corporate strategy from the perspective of the guest speaker. Fellows come away from each Digital Drop-In with a clearer sense of each guest’s perspective on an issue or topic impacting his or her enterprise in a significant way.
