I met Julie Ann Horvath at the Farmhouse Conference and she’s amazing! She’s not only a designer at GitHub, but she’s the Creator, Organizer & MC of Passion Projects; a monthly event where she invites badass women in tech to come in and share their awesomeness.
Tonight my good friend, Laura Gluhanich (aka @lauraglu) will be speaking on Your Presence Is A Present , and I’m looking forward to seeing her rock it.
Additionally… this weekend, Julie is putting on GitHub’s First Public Speaking Workshop For Women, and I’ve been invited to be a mentor/contributor!
I’ll be there, with several other (incredibly awesome and admirable) women, mentoring, working and hacking all day. We’ll be talking about things like writing a proposal and personal bio, writing in general, talk outlines and flows, how to handle Q&A or discussion formats, how to have (or fake) confidence whilst on stage, and how to show your passion.
I absolutely love what a champion Julie is for supporting women in the creative/tech industry, and I’m super excited to meet all the other rad women flying in from around the country for this awesome event!
