Stella & Dot CEO to Speak at Inaugural Silicon Valley Conference

Stella & Dot CEO Jessica Herrin has joined an impressive lineup of speakers slated for this year’s Watermark Silicon Valley Conference for Women. Hillary Rodham Clinton, fashion icon Diane von Furstenberg, and professor and best-selling author Dr. Brené Brown are among the women who will deliver keynotes at the first-ever event. Also in the lineup will be Dr. Gloria Mayfield Banks, an elite executive national sales director with Mary Kay Inc. as well as a motivational speaker and trainer.

Watermark brings together executive women in the San Francisco Bay Area, home to tech industry hotbed Silicon Valley. For more than 20 years, the nonprofit has worked to increase representation of women at executive levels, specifically through connection, development and advocacy programs. Watermark’s board of directors includes top executives from brands such as Intuit, Oracle and Deloitte & Touche LLP.

The inaugural Silicon Valley Conference for Women will take place in Santa Clara, California, on Feb. 24, 2015. With the theme “Lead On,” the event aims to promote leadership as well as personal and professional growth. Throughout the day, Herrin and more than 100 other speakers will lead discussions and interactive sessions on issues impacting women in the workforce.

Watermark is also using the conference as a platform to introduce its first Watermark Index. Based on a survey of Bay Area companies, the Index will highlight businesses actively supporting and developing the women in their ranks.
