Fashion Tech 2019 - What’s Next? by Women of Wearables

Fashion Tech 2019 - What’s Next? by Women of Wearables

To kick off our 2019 meetup season, Women of Wearables are organising another monthly meetup on February 27th, and this time topic is all things fashion technology!

Using the latest technology can give a fashion brand access to unlimited possibilities when it comes to communication. Biotechnology has enabled us to come up with progressive ideas such as bioengineering using spider silk, 3D printing has affected the traditional design process, the materials, and the production of jewellery and accessories, while brands like Burberry, Alexander Wang and Ralph Lauren are using technology to further elevate the customer experience.

But, the fashion industry is also one of the world’s most polluting. Reportedly topped only by oil, the fashion industry is contributing to major environmental destruction – mainly because consumers insist on buying so many clothes at such cheap prices. Alternatives do exist. The solution lies in buying less and choosing better quality items that are made as ethically as possible.

In order to raise awareness about some of the challenges of fashion industry, as well as possible solutions and upcoming trends, Women of Wearables are bringing together five speakers - entrepreneurs, technologists, designers, legal professionals and journalists, who will share their views on all things fashion tech, sustainability, smart textiles and everything in between!

Join us for an evening of inspiring talks about fashion tech projects and networking afterwards!

Many thanks to our sponsors MHP Communications for providing us with the venue and refreshments for the evening!

* While we are an organisation aiming to inspire and connect first and foremost women in wearable and fashion tech, we welcome all genders to this event! :)

Agenda

6.00 - 6.30 - Registration and networking

6.30 - 6.35 - Women of Wearables - 5 minute presentation

6:35 - 6:50 - MHPC - 15 min presentation

6.50 - 8.00 - Panel discussion + Q&A

8.00 - 9.00 - Food, refreshments and networking

*Be advised that we will be taking photographs at the event, which we will be using in the future to promote Women of Wearables' activities. By registering for the event you are giving Women of Wearables permission to take your picture and post them on our website and social media channels as well as use them in other promotional materials.

- Identifying the brave conversations we want and need to have
- Recognising the fears and excuses we make to ourselves that hold us back
- Learning how to move forward despite them

Through attending this workshop, you will;
- Learn a simple structure that enables powerful, objective and meaningful conversations
- Be motivated to take bold, immediate steps towards your personal and professional goals
- Feel empowered to ask for what you need or want, with less fear around hearing “no”
- Identify fact from emotion, assumption and story
- Understand and move past the excuses & fears that hold you back

SAN FRANCISCO: Women in Tech: The Future of AI

SAN FRANCISCO: Women in Tech: The Future of AI

Since Ada Lovelace wrote the first computer program nearly 200 years ago, women have contributed to the advancement of computing and helped pave the way for today’s artificial intelligence (AI). Today, women are pushing the frontiers of AI in applications from robotics to recruiting, from startups to venture capital. Equally far-reaching are women’s contributions to investigate AI’s social, ethical, and legal implications. For all the promise of new technology, AI can exacerbate negative effects when it reinforces biases and inequalities.

Estimates show that women comprise only 13.5 percent of those working in machine learning, one of the fastest growing technology fields. This well-recognized gender gap continues to deter talent and diminish potential for the field, which will affect innumerable aspects of our economy and everyday lives. WITI@UC imagines a different future.

The symposium is open to everyone, encouraging a broader audience to join the conversation. Attendees will have the opportunity to share experiences, establish new connections, and collectively champion the advancement of women in technology.

SAN FRANCISCO: Ditch the B* Stigma! Professional Advancement Workshop for Women in Tech

FEMRESOURCES’ WOMEN IN TECH CAREER ACCELERATOR SERIES

Get ready to deep dive and ditch the b* stigma!

Back by popular demand! Our introductory professional advancement session was so well received we’ve expanded it to a half-day interactive workshop.


Do you ever shrink from speaking up because you don’t want to be thought of as difficult? Have you ever worried about the stigma against women being bossy, bitchy or overbearing?

Many women -- including women in tech -- struggle with being assertive because of concerns like these. The problem with not using a strong voice and speaking up: you prevent your personal and professional growth.

Instead of avoiding confrontation, learn how to stay true to yourself while amplifying your power.

Through real-world examples and unconventional problem-solving methods, you’ll learn techniques for developing a self-assured presence that improves your verbal and non-verbal communication, no matter the topic. Building authentic confidence and making your communication style work to your best advantage are crucial to your success.

You’ll get entertaining information, small group discussion, insightful worksheets, fun demonstrations, and a lot of role play.

After this session, you’ll know how to:

  1. Stop apologizing and speak with strength

  2. Deal with mansplainers and conversational bulldozers

  3. Harness the power of tone of voice and body language

  4. Discover and embody your ‘Most Confident Self’ (MCS)

Workshop Format

First, we'll review important yet simple mindset shifts you need to make in order to start communicating with more strength along with specific suggestions on how to use words, tone, and presence in a variety of situations.

Then, we’ll break up into pairs and small groups to put these concepts into practice. We’ll role play real-life scenarios for instant, supportive feedback.

Following role play, we’ll debrief and share our various experiences.

Throughout the workshop, we’ll alternate between discussing principles, role play, and debriefs. This will be a safe place to discuss issues that come up for you.

Kali’s fresh approach will entertain you and equip you with new tools to stop the negative self-talk that can be diminishing, and give you a new foundation for standing in your power.

We'll provide a yummy lunch and plenty of snacks to fuel your day.
