Hi everyone. Tonight I'm heading a panel discussion on the professional use of social media for the International Professional Women of Istanbul (IPWIN) in Taksim. If you're an international pro woman in Istanbul you're invited, you don't have to be a member of International Women of Istanbul (IWI)
25YTL, 7pm, Taksim Hill Hotel. RSVP to Protected content -- RSVP required.
We'll also post online the proceedings and resources for expats worldwide... contact me or comment below to be sure to access it.
Here are some of the reasons social media is perfect for the expat woman professional:
IN AN ATTENTION ECONOMY WE’RE NO LONGER OUT OF SIGHT
We’re used to relying on technology to fill the gaps in our expat operations so social media has the potential to level the playing field for the most far-flung female professionals:
1) Social media works best the way women work best: it’s about making and tending personal connections
2) Social media supports and consolidates the spread-out personal networks expats and global citizens have already initiated in their mobile lives
3) Social media provides access to state-of-the-industry practices, trending thought, and leading players in our professions
