Philanthropy Texas Style – The Ann Richards High School in Austin and The Committee of 200 Women CEO’s group


A few weeks ago I was privileged to join fellow women CEO’s from our group The Committee of 200 ( I was past Chair of the C200 Foundation and Past Vice Chair of the Governing Board) at Intel in Austin who hosted the 11th grade class of The Ann Richards High School for Science Technology Math and Engineering. The occasion was for us to meet these young women and for all of us to be inspired by each other.

Below are the wonderful young women at my table – all of whom aspire to go to college and to become the next leaders of their generation. It was our pleasure to show them that it is possible as we have done, to dream and succeed in those aspirations! What a pleasure – and great thanks to Intel and our c200 member Renee James, President of Intel, who enabled us to use their amazing facilities and inspire us with their achievements. From left to right they are:
