Across the Divide: Navigating the Digital Revolution as a Woman, Entrepreneur and CEO

Tuesday, August 30, 2011 @ 10:00 AM-12:01 PM

— lecture and book signing

Featured Speaker: Susan S. Elliott, Founder & Chair, SSE, Inc., and author, Across the Divide: Navigating the Digital Revolution as a Woman, Entrepreneur and CEO

Hear the story of a pioneering woman who got in on the ground floor of the digital revolution to become one of its leaders!

In 1958 Susan Elliott joined IBM as one of the company’s first female programmers. Forced to leave in 1966 when she became pregnant, she founded technology and education firm SSE, Inc., in the midst of a decade that was known for innovative technology, but not for women leaders in the field.

Today, St. Louis-based SSE is one of the fastest growing technology and education firms in mid-America, recognized globally for its work in the fields of eLearning, blended learning, network infrastructure and technology management services.

Meet Ms. Elliott, hear her story, and have the opportunity to buy a signed copy of her new book, Across the Divide: Navigating the Digital Revolution as a Woman, Entrepreneur and CEO, following the presentation.
