Book Description: Digital Sisterhood provides insight and inspiration for any woman seeking to celebrate, express, or reinvent how the Internet, social media, and technology impact her life. Ananda Kiamsha Madelyn Leeke became a pioneer in the digital space when she first logged into the LexisNexis research service as a first-year law student at Howard University School of Law 27 years ago. She was immediately smitten with what the World Wide Web could do and in this compelling memoir, we follow her on her journey as she finds herself in an Internet café in Beijing, China and has an interaction that changes her life.
Leeke begins to embrace and define the concept of “digital sisterhood” and through interactions and conversations both on-line and in-person, she embraces a complete career reinvention (spoiler alert, she leaves the legal field) and finally embraces her enormous creative spirit. We get to know the digital sisters in her life as true sheroes and virtual mentors. Their experiences and insights helped her use the Internet as a self-discovery tool and identify leadership archetypes that shaped her role as a social media leader.
Her blogging and social media adventures will highlight the lessons she learned while tapping into the power of her leadership archetypes, the reasons she launched the Digital Sisterhood Network, and the experiences that caused her to adopt what she terms the “fierce living” commitments. At the end of each chapter, you’ll have an opportunity to explore aspects of your own Digital Sisterhood journey through a series of interactive exercises.

Guess what’s been happening behind the scenes at the Digital Sisterhood Network? The creation of a new logo design! It was created by Dariela Cruz. She also created the 2011 Digital Sisterhood Month badges.
What do you think about the logo? We love the bright orange and pink colors! We also love the clean design of the text.
Many thanks to the digital sisters who provided feedback and helped select the new logo: Judith Hudgens, Xina Eiland, Yael Flusberg, Judy Weathers, Kety Esquivel, Danica Kombol, Britton Edwards, Kelly Heisler, Julie Diaz-Asper, Lori Malachi, Lynda Carter-Cook, Boni Candelario, Stacey Ferguson, Alma Suarez, Carla Hamilton Briceno, and Margaux Delotte-Bennett. Special thanks to Dr. John F. Leeke for his feedback on the logo design and all things Digital Sisterhood!
Digital Sisterhood Month 2010 was our first celebration of women online and the connections they make, conversations they have, communities they build, causes they support, collaborative partnerships they establish, and commerce they engage in with women they meet online and offline. It was an amazing December! Click here to read what happened.
The second annual Digital Sisterhood Month begins on December 1. The theme is “Celebrate the 4 Fs of Women’s Health: Feelings, Food, Fitness & Fierce Living.” Click here to watch a video about the theme.
FYI – The 2011 schedule of events will be posted by November 30.
