Eileen Brown came to my attention as the moderator of the very successful WIL&T luncheon at Tech Ed 2007. I contacted her to get help in pulling together as many resources for our own WIL&T session at WPC 2007 including our group on the WPC site. Eileen, whose own story is just unbelievable in its roots, pulled together a great amount of research which she shares along with the panelists, in a video at Tech Ed and sent this to me as well a few broadcast links she has done.
Eileen is typical of what we need in this global community, someone who readily gives what she has so carefully taken her own time putting together and without a thought happily shares with everyone in order to give us a window into what we need to look at. Below I have put these resources links for your own previewing. What I learned confirmed what I believed to be true. BUT what I really found amazing was the stories of the panelists, one of whom I met at WPC, Lisa Coleman. Again here is someone who wants to help spread the message and does so gladly and with no hesitation.
Eileen has let me know in no uncertain terms that she believes in this initiative and we look forward to having her input as we forge ahead.
Take an hour and listen to this session. Unfortunately we don't have the best video feed (looking into getting it for our WIL&T web site), but just sit back and listen. A picture is worth a thousand words but in this case cranking up your speakers will be worth a whole lot more.

Thank you Eileen. You're a real motivation to techies everywhere!
