Dec 16, 2010, 12:58 ET from T.E.N.

ATLANTA, Dec. 16, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- T.E.N., a technology and information security executive networking and relationship-marketing firm, announced today that Marci McCarthy, President and CEO, has been featured as a contributor in CLIMB: Leading Women In Technology Share Their Journeys To Success. The book, a Women in Technology (WIT) publication, features more than 60 profiles of leaders influencing Atlanta's business, academic and technology landscapes, including Women of the Year in Technology Award recipients, WIT presidents, and key WIT supporters and volunteers.

McCarthy's chapter, titled, "New, New and New – A Time of 'Firsts'" discusses lessons she learned throughout her career, and people that made a difference beginning with college graduation, through serving at the helm of WIT and starting and owning her own successful company today.

"As I reflect on my career, I found that regardless of which industry you are in – or your state in the industry – what matters above all are the relationships. Relationships are what bind us together, move us forward and make us successful," said Marci McCarthy, CEO and president, T.E.N.

"These powerful and poignant contributions illustrate challenging and often humorous leadership lessons that can impact readers of all ages and gender," said Sandy Hofmann, president of WIT, Inc. and co-editor of CLIMB. ”These extraordinary women have generously shared their invaluable experience, advice, and journeys that will inspire leaders in this generation and the next."

CLIMB also describes efforts by WIT and The WIT Foundation to support the next generation of women through pre-career programs encouraging girls to study and work in STEM-related careers (science, technology, engineering and math.) Net proceeds from book sales will provide additional funding for the WIT Foundation. CLIMB is available through WIT's website (www.mywit.org), as well as at WIT signature events and forums. The book will be available on www.amazon.com in 2011.
