BJ Wishinsky: Trusting the Net to Appear

  Broadcast in Business

Call in to speak with the host

The art of personal reinvention means trusting your ability to take the risks worth taking, celebrating when things work out according to plan, and learning from your setbacks when they do not. BJ Wishinsky, Communities Program Manager, for the Anita Borg Institute (ABI) put into action the quote from American naturalist John Burroughs "Leap, and the net will appear," when she joined ABI after a 20-year computing industry career. Her risks paid off and, today, BJ uses social media tools and networks to help technical women and their advocates connect with resources, opportunities, and each other.
