Author. TEDx Speaker. Founder, The Rising Tides - Making the Workplace Better for Women.

In July of 2015, Eileen Scully launched The Rising Tides to advise organizations on making the workplace better for women. Her passion for strengthening the roles women can play in each other’s success grew from the twenty years she spent in technology, learning from some of the smartest leaders, clients, and colleagues imaginable. As women, not only are the demands on our professional lives extending but as our personal lives are continuing to flourish, I believe we need to move closer to a business culture that appropriately supports both.

In June of 2016, I was honored to be invited by the Obama White House to participate in the United State of Women, one of five thousand global advocates for women and girls convening to prioritize and activate on our collective goals.

In November of 2017, I was named one of Irish America Magazine's Business 100, honoring the best and the brightest Irish-American and Irish-born leaders representing some of the most innovative and influential companies and corporations in the world.

In August of 2018, I keynoted the first IEEE Women in Engineering Leadership Summit in Tunis, Tunisia.

In September of 2018, I spoke at the first TEDx in Sfax, Tunisia, on "How Women Can Succeed in a World Built Without Them."

In 2019, my book, "In the Company of Men: How Women Can Succeed in a World Built Without Them" will be published, featuring stories of women who have accomplished much in male-dominated spaces, and are working to widen the path for others to follow.

Much of my free time is spent working with The Get In Touch Foundation, on whose board I have proudly served since 2010. We provide free breast health education to girls around the world.
