All Access Pass
The last year was a terrific one for UF Women, culminating with the very successful All Access Pass two-day symposium in April. We had wonderful speakers and engaged attendees, and the rooms literally buzzed for two days! Our keynote speaker, Linda Parker Hudson, was fantastic. She was recently honored in Fortune's list of the 50 Most Powerful Women in Business and was named one of Washington's 100 Most Powerful Women in the October 2011 issue of Washingtonian magazine.

Mark Your Calendars
The steering council is making plans for the months ahead, which will include small regional events and a forum in Gainesville on March 23rd-24th. We would love to see you back in Gainesville for the forum in March. The program promises to be engaging and fun; plus you will have time to network with your fellow UF Women! Mark your calendars and plan to attend.

Dara Torres, (BA Telecommunications '90) - London
Age is just a number. The statement couldn't be truer when it comes to 12-time Olympic medalist Dara Torres. Leading the University of Florida to nine SEC wins in 1985-89 was just the tip of the iceberg for this swimmer. Now 44, Torres has no plans of slowing down. In fact she is training for the 2012 Olympics in London, despite having knee surgery in 2009. Dara's 12 medals have her tied with retired swimmer Jenny Thompson for the most decorated U.S. female Olympian. If she makes the team, she will become the oldest Olympic swimmer ever. But it's not records she is looking to break, but rather it's her love for the sport that drives her. To read more, click here.
Florida Innovation Hub at the Heart of Innovation Square
Made possible by an $8.2 million federal grant and a $5 million commitment from the University of Florida, Innovation Hub, the first building in Innovation Square, opened for business in October. The business incubator links startup technology companies with UF expertise and service providers to help them succeed and prosper. To read more, click here.
The hub is the centerpiece of Innovation Square, a development that combines technology and science, business and employment opportunities with retail and residential space, all in one convenient location. In coordination with the development of Innovation Square, the University is developing Innovation Academy, a program focused on entrepreneurship. Students recruited to this program will attend only in spring and summer semesters, and the various available disciplines of study will be linked with entrepreneurship instruction and internships.
