The CLUB celebrated its 4th Anniversary with a banquet, held at the Fremont Hills Country Club on November 15, 2016. At this event, the CLUB recognized three of its members for their outstanding service:
The Driver Award
Angelika Ryan, Consultant at PwC, was awarded the Driver award for 2016. Angelika joined the CLUB late 2015 and immediately took on a leadership role as the CLUB’s 2016 Treasurer and Financial committee lead. Angelika is not only creative and detail oriented but also strategic in her approach. In addition to her significant ongoing Treasury duties, she undertook a complete revamp the CLUB's financial management practices to better position us for the next phase in our growth.
The Evangelist Award
The CLUB recognizes Olga V. Mack, General Counsel at ClearSide, with the Evangelist award. Olga is passionate about driving the success of women. Olga publishes spotlight articles on women leaders, and has founded and leads a national movement to increase female representation on corporate boards. This year Olga represented Silicon Valley women at The White House's "United State of Women." Olga also evangelizes for the CLUB throughout her public presence.
The Groundbreaker Award
Katherine Mendonca, an Enterprise Mobile Computing Solutions Strategist at Apple, was awarded this year’s Groundbreaker award. Using the Design Thinking methodology from Stanford, Katherine led an initiative to revamp our Mentoring program to better meet our members’ needs. Because of Katherine, we now have CLUBconnect, a program focused on making connections happen between members to facilitate tapping into our wide-ranging professional expertise.
