WELLESLEY, Mass. — The Annual Meeting and Luncheon of the Armenian International Women’s Association (AIWA) will be held on Saturday, May 5, at Alumnae Hall, Wellesley College.
Dr. Patti Fletcher, author of the recently published book Disrupters: Success Strategies from Women Who Break the Mold, will be the luncheon speaker.
The granddaughter of an Armenian Genocide survivor, a seasoned tech executive, award-winning marketing influencer, board member, angel investor, and speaker, Fletcher is currently executive-in-residence at the Babson College WINLab.
Fletcher points out that over the last 18 months the world has witnessed that, when women struggle, they come together to create a force for change.
“They become a force that disrupts the status quo, whether it’s equal pay and treatment of women in Hollywood and Silicon Valley, or women having the right to drive in Saudi Arabia,” she notes.
“Disrupting is about challenging the status quo,” she points out. “It’s the idea that nothing will stop you from doing your part and creating a new world that we want to live in.”
