ATLANTA, December 16, 2010 - T.E.N., a technology and information security executive networking and
relationship-marketing firm, announced today that Marci McCarthy, President
and CEO, has been featured as a contributor in CLIMB: Leading Women In
Technology Share Their Journeys To Success. The book, a Women in Technology
(WIT) publication, features more than 60 profiles of leaders influencing
Atlanta's business, academic and technology landscapes, including Women of
the Year in Technology Award recipients, WIT presidents, and key WIT
supporters and volunteers.
McCarthy's chapter, titled, "New, New and New - A Time of 'Firsts'"
discusses lessons she learned throughout her career, and people that made a
difference beginning with college graduation, through serving at the helm of
WIT and starting and owning her own successful company today.
"As I reflect on my career, I found that regardless of which industry you
are in - or your state in the industry - what matters above all are the
relationships. Relationships are what bind us together, move us forward and
make us successful," said Marci McCarthy, CEO and president, T.E.N.
"These powerful and poignant contributions illustrate challenging and
often humorous leadership lessons that can impact readers of all ages and
gender," said Sandy Hofmann, president of WIT, Inc. and co-editor of CLIMB.
"These extraordinary women have generously shared their invaluable
experience, advice, and journeys that will inspire leaders in this generation
and the next."
CLIMB also describes efforts by WIT and The WIT Foundation to support the
next generation of women through pre-career programs encouraging girls to
study and work in STEM-related careers (science, technology, engineering and
math.) Net proceeds from book sales will provide additional funding for the
WIT Foundation. CLIMB is available through WIT's website
(www.mywit.org), as well as at WIT signature events and forums. The
book will be available on www.amazon.com in 2011.
