LOUISVILLE, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 18, 2010 — The Design Automation Conference (DAC), the premier conference devoted to electronic design and design automation (EDA), today announced details of this year’s Career Workshop, organized by Workshop for Women in Electronic Design (WWED), “More Than Core Competence...What it Takes for Your Career to Survive, and Thrive!” The annual WWED is for men and women in the electronic design industry, and in academia.

The 15th WWED will be held on Monday, June 14th, from 11:30am until 2:00pm. Sponsors for this year’s WWED are Atrenta, Axiom Design Automation, ClioSoft, EVE, Jasper Design Automation, MP Associates, Mentor Graphics, Real Intent, SpringSoft, and Synopsys. The 47th DAC will be held in the Anaheim Convention Center, in Anaheim, CA, from June 13th - 18th, 2010.

The WWED keynote presentation by Patty Azarello, founder and CEO of Azarello Group, will focus on career building – why some people get ahead, why some don’t, and what you can do about it. Patty will outline how to make sure your career doesn’t fall victim to someone else’s priorities, how to make the most of your time and energy, and how to take the initiative rather than waiting to be discovered. Patty also will present the Marie R. Pistilli Women in EDA Achievement Award to Dr. Mar Hershenson, vice president of product development in the Custom Design Business Unit at Magma Design Automation.

From 1:00 until 2:00pm, three well-known women in the electronics world will give 10-minute “lightning panel” on career issues followed by lively discussion and questions from the audience.

  • Carol Hallett, vice president of sales at Real Intent, talks about bringing your authentic self to a leadership position and how truly effective this can be.
  • Gilda Garreton, principal engineer at SunLabs/Oracle, discusses mentoring as a leadership development tool and competitive advantage for your career.

Kathryn Kranen, CEO of Jasper Design Automation, talks Money Talk: above and beyond intelligence and diligence, delivering real and observable value in your company. For biographies, photos and details of presentations please see DAC Workshop: More Than Core Competence.
