My October started with a blast of women in social media events. On October 3, I moderated Sisterhood the Blog’s focus group on how women marry their social justice, social entrepreneurial, and/or nonprofit work to do good with social media on October 3, 2010, at Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library in Washington, DC. Guest panelists included:

•Maaden Eshete, Co-founder of Divas, MPH –;

•Regina Holliday, Medical advocacy muralist –;

•Shannon Lynberg, Co-founder of Hollaback DC! –;

•Tracy Chiles McGhee, Founder of Womanifesting, Inc. –;

•Megan Pagado, Marketing and events manager for the Arts and Humanities County of Montgomery County, arts advocate, and graphic design “dabbler” – and;

•Pamela Pressley, Founder and publisher of The Cotillion Online –;

•Chai Shenoy, Co-founder of Hollaback DC! and gender-based activist –;

•Tracey Webb, Founder of Black Gives Back and Black Benefactors – and

We had a great time chatting about so many aspects of our work! I learned so many things from these dynamic digital divas. Look for video clips from the focus group in a few weeks. In the meantime, check out the Flickr photos:
