In an industry lacking women in speaking roles, it's important that women support one another on their journey to the stage. Women Helping Women provides women of all experience levels with the support they need from first draft to booked gig.
We’ll host Hangouts featuring Q&A about our past speaking experience and anxieties, where we can also listen and help with yours. Featuring periodic special guests.
We’ll work personally with as many of you as we can, and find other women in the tech/open-source community to help mentor as well.
We’ll manage a Google Group for asynchronous Q&A, mentoring and helping you craft your perfect proposal so you’re ready when the CFP opens.
We’ll introduce you to Ember organizers around the world who can provide less-intimidating settings for you to prepare your talk and build your stage-presence.
We’ll culminate our efforts in a variety of events on Monday, pre-conference day, to help you prep for your next speaking gig, and to meet other amazing women in the Ember and tech communities.
We’ll send you an invitation to our Google Group, provide you with contact information, and let you know when Hangouts are scheduled.
Do you already have speaking experience? Do you remember getting over your own hurdles and have hard-earned wisdom to share? Be a special guest, mentor or just a friendly voice on the mailing list. This group is for you too.
