This bi-annual event is a collaborative effort of, now, three entities coalescing around a common theme. We invite 8 – 10 women from our design community to give a short presentation about their passions/their work. It is a dynamic experience for the presenters as well as the attendees. Free and open to the public; Registration requested.
The theme for this spring is “Creativity and Careers.” The theme is intended to be open-ended so that each speaker can interpret what it means to her. This event works best when our speakers use this opportunity to explore and talk sincerely about their work, elevating the conversation within their field of work, critically exploring where they want to take their work, etc.
A Pecha Kucha styled event
Each presenter uses 20 slides (no more and no less) and each slide automatically advances after 20 seconds, totaling 6 minutes 40 seconds per presenter.
During the event, complimentary hors d’oeuvres and beverages are served. Registration opens March 15, 2019. Each entity promotes the event among its members/constituents. The event is open to the public, including men. Expected attendance is 180 – 200 people.
