The CLUB is thrilled to announce Karen Catlin, CEO of Athentica, and Diana Olin, Global Program Manager & Lawyer at Adobe, as the newest additions to the CLUB’s Board of Directors.
Prior to joining Athentica as its CEO, Karen was a vice president in the CTO’s office at Adobe Systems and a leadership coach for women in the tech industry. Karen writes "Use Your Inside Voice", a blog about the intersection of leadership and parenting, and she frequently publishes about leadership on Femgineer, Women 2.0, and other tech leadership blogs.
In her role as the Global Program Manager for Adobe’s Worldwide License Management leadership team, Diana uses an interdisciplinary approach and relationship-based mindset to build connections across functions and catalyze projects towards the end goal.
“The CLUB is a self-selecting group of engaged, genuine women leading proactive lives and dedicating the energy to establish such a mutually reinforcing environment. Member driven, it’s about creating a space for women to grow into themselves and help others do the same…. As we approach 2014, may we each have the courage to dedicate the time to pause and invest. Pause to appreciate where we are and who’s helped to get us here. Invest in ourselves to self-reflect and proactively engage with life and others,” Diana commented in a recent article.
Existing board members and founders of the CLUB are Annie Rogaski, a Partner at Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP in the intellectual property practice, Kristiane Koontz, a management consultant with PwC’s Financial Services Advisory group, and Julie Stephenson, a specialist in intellectual property strategy and risk management.
The CLUB also thanks outgoing board members Kesa Yorozu and Lynn Koh.

Please join us in thanking Kesa and Lynn for their fantastic and tireless efforts making the CLUB a success!
