  • Having the Courage
    Having the Courage Claudia Amy Salador, CEO/Founder Recorded: Jun 15 2018 28 mins
    'Having the courage' has become my new personal brand tagline. No longer are we a generation of robots, filing in and out of the same out dated system but we are unique and special individuals that are starting to march to our own beat.

    I used to be a robot, but I now march to my own beat after turning down a job at a top PR company in London. At age 22, I found the courage within myself, like many other youthful millennials today to make their own decisions in life, regarding jobs, choices, challenges.

    This meant not doing what was expected but what was meaningful to me. This choice of journey means continually defending my decisions to everyone, making harder decisions how to carve up my time, really figuring out what I wanted to do, what I can do, my skills, my passions - continuously thinking whether I am mad or not, questioning how I would make a living - many questions, multiple answers... NOTHING that I had been taught about in university.

    I am representing the millennial generation, doing things differently and having the courage to do so. I want to inspire everyone and anyone to not quit their jobs, but find their meaning, their passion and go for it!

  • The Power of Mentoring
    The Power of Mentoring Jennifer Riggins Recorded: Jun 13 2018 62 mins
    This conversation features women in tech who have benefited from receiving and giving mentoring, but it's really for anyone who is looking for a hand up or to offer one. Our experts will share their experiences and talk about the importance of mentoring — though that it's not for everyone — how to find the right mentor and mentee for you, and how it's an important part of building a career in tech.

    So grab your cuppa and join the conversation for the second episode of WIT: Women in Tech! We are talking to four awesome women in tech -- Tammy Bütow, SRE (site reliability engineering) and chaos engineering specialist at Gremlin; Ana Medina, chaos engineer at Gremlin (formerly Uber); Charu Sharma, CEO of Next Play an AI tool that helps companies connect their employees internally for mentoring; Etel Sverdlov, director of developer community and first hire at Digital Ocean; and Prima Virani, senior security engineer at Marqueta.

    Their roles in tech benefit from a wealth of experience working with and securing those systems. But you usually have to have already worked with those systems to then be able to get jobs working with those systems -- a struggle for any junior-level job, but a particularly strong one in the tech space. This is where mentoring comes in. Each of these awesome women has benefited from being mentored and benefit from giving back and mentoring.

    Join us (or sign up to listen to the recording later) to learn the best way to find a mentor or mentee/mentoree and how to leverage that relationship so you're both getting the most out of it. You'll learn about informal and formal guilds that support that mentoring, and what companies should do to facilitate these benefits. And you'll hear personal stories from these women who have built solid careers in tech on the shoulders of experience and support.
  • How To Escape the Trap of Toxic Perfectionism
    How To Escape the Trap of Toxic Perfectionism Harriet Waley-Cohen, speaker and certify coach Recorded: Jun 13 2018 62 mins
    The media tells women that they must be slim, successful, ambitious, fabulously and fashionably turned out, have a beautiful home that looks interior magazine perfect, throw dinner parties with intricate menus, bake organic cakes for the school charity sale, model glowing skin, meditate before dawn and be calm at all times…

    The ideals that are put forward are unrealistic at best, and perpetuate the toxicity of striving for perfectionism at worst. This has a detrimental effect on women’s confidence, self-esteem, health, happiness, relationships and career.

    In this webinar, different aspects and consequences of perfectionism will be explored. A different paradigm will be put forward that supports women in finally abandoning the shame of not being perfect: progress and self-validation.

    The focus will be on:
    What a life of celebrating progress looks and feels like
    How progress rather than perfection supports self-esteem and confidence.
    Practical tools for shifting to the empowering attitude of progress and self-validation.

    Learning to Love Criticism Naomi Ward, Founder, Education Connected Recorded: Jun 6 2018 36 mins
    Hearing and integrating criticism is a fundamental part of our growth.

    What are the conditions we need to create personally and environmentally in order to use criticism in our favour?

    We will look at a company where 'radical transparency' is at the heart of the culture to see what we can learn. In addition, we will look at practical strategies to support you in being open to criticism instead of going on the defensive.
