OLLI @Berkeley presents "Riding the Next Wave," a series of conversations with Sylvia Paull in which Sylvia and her guests will forecast the year's advances in the arts, culture, and technology
Renee Rivera joined the East Bay Bicycle Coalition (EBBC) in 2011 as executive director, after many years as a volunteer, board member, and most recently acting executive director at the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition. Renee has a background in non-profit financial management and administration, and worked for many years at the Exploratorium in San Francisco. Her position as executive director at the EBBC allows her to bring her management, financial, and administrative experience to bear on her passion for bicycling and bicycle advocacy.
Sylvia Paull specializes in publicity, branding, and business development services for high-tech start-ups and nonprofits. She also founded and is host of several events: the INFUSION technology lunch, held monthly at the Berkeley Repertory Theater; the Berkeley Cybersalon, a periodic event focusing on technology and culture; and the Last Friday Ladies Lunch, featuring women who are changing the world, held in Berkeley. She founded Gracenet, a networking and advocacy organization for women in high-tech, which led a successful campaign to help eliminate sexist advertising in high-tech media. She was marketing director for Software Ventures; board member of BMUG, the Berkeley Macintosh Users Group; and co-producer of Science Editor, distributed by CBS radio.
