The Women's Center is bringing two dynamic speakers to U.Va. this month in its "Changing Face of Technology" series.

On April 5, Allison Abraham, a 1988 Darden School alumna, will describe how she envisions the Internet affecting the lives of users. As Chief Operations Officer at iVillage Inc. until recently, Abraham was instrumental in designing the innovative marketing strategies that propelled iVillage.com to become one of the most popular Web sites for women. She is now president of LifeMinders Inc.

Her talk will be held in the Darden School's CCA Amphitheatre, room 50, at 1:30 p.m. Although the event is open to the public, reservations are required by calling 982-2361.

Jacklyn Monk, the managing editor of Vibe magazine, will give the keynote speech at the first Black Women's Leadership Conference on April 14. Monk will speak about exploring and representing identity in the age of technology. The first African-American woman to become beauty editor of a general audience women's magazine, New Woman, Monk has also been executive editor of Girl and has been published in Harper's Bazaar, Heart & Soul and Cosmopolitan.
Her talk will be held at 11 a.m. in Minor Hall Auditorium.
