One Million Women From Around the World Discuss Issues Via Social Media
We are pleased to announce the 2013 Women Are Talking Virtual Global Conversation taking place on Friday, May 3, 2013 between the hours of 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. (EST). The voices of 1 million women will gather to take part in a virtual conversation using the power of technology, via Twitter, Facebook and technology leader AT&T’s Tele-Presence Centers. This year’s theme is The Power of One!
Sponsored by Recipes for Good Living Magazine and AT&T, this event will bring together the voices of 1 million women and men who support women in their efforts. Begun over five years ago as a local gathering of women during the first weekend in May over tea events in the Washington, DC area, this annual event has developed into a global conversation that includes 11 different countries (US, England, France, Germany, Canada, Australia, Kenya, India, Dubai, Singapore and Brazil).
This year’s conversation will be moderated by women leaders on trending topics through a virtual dais in five Tele-Presence Centers located in Washington DC, New York City; Dallas, Texas; Los Angeles, California and Chicago Illinois. These women leaders will moderate interactive discussions over a two-hour period via a Women Are Talking mobile app, AT&T Tele-Presence Centers, tweets and Facebook, to which women around the globe will have the opportunity to lend their collective voices. This event will not only spawn the discussion, but will also begin the process for collectively creating an online interactive web environment where things are not only talked about but are acted upon.
The creator of Women Are Talking, Bonnie McDaniel who is a television host and contributor, author and Editor in Chief of Recipes for Good Living Magazine, a lifestyle magazine for the modern family stated, “the goal of this event is to emphasize the power that each woman has when her voice is connected to the voice of another person and it begins with a simple conversation.”
