WiT Regatta: December Pop-Up Event in A'dam
On December 13th, the Regatta is back for a free one-night Pop-Up event! It’s an opportunity to strengthen the learnings and relationships birthed in October, or experience the atmosphere of the Regatta for the first time.
The Women in Tech (WiT) Regatta debuted in Amsterdam in October 2018 and it became a powerful celebration of women in tech in our vibrant city. 400+ women (and men) and 140 speakers across dozens of tech disciplines gathered for the weeklong conference designed to connect attendees to mentors, peers and resources. From cryptocurrency to polishing your startup pitch, the Regatta tackles the topics women in tech care about, creates dialogue and forward movement, and highlights the fact that Relationships are the True Currency.
You’ll have a chance to participate in two breakout sessions and attend a conversation led by a diverse panel of experts. The evening ends in a social mixer with bites and drinks. Sessions include:
Hiding in the Bathroom: Emotions in the Workplace and How to Manage Them /
What happens when you start to feel frustrated, worried, disappointed, or just plain mad at work? For many, the answer has been to “hide in the bathroom” and cry for fear of showing signs of weakness. We’ll discuss when it’s appropriate to express emotions at work, how embracing vulnerability can improve your career, and tips for keeping things professional while remaining authentic.
Toxic Tech: Mindful strategies to Build Resilience /
The abyss of 24/7 connectivity makes it difficult for us to navigate our professional and personal lives without feeling overwhelmed. What can we do to ensure we thrive? How can we protect ourselves from drowning in these turbulent waters? What role are you allowing technology to play in your life? In this discussion, we’ll share tips and techniques to help you weather the storm.
Take Your Seat at the Table: Building Credibility /
Credibility is a precious thing in any profession. For most, it is the surest way to advance a career. If you want to advance your career you need to be part of the conversation and have a seat at the table. But how do you get the seat? During this session, we’ll discuss the importance of building personal and professional credibility and presenting your most confident and authentic self.
The Potential Impacts of the “Internet of Things” /
The internet landscape is growing at an exponential rate with a multitude of smart devices that keep us constantly connected. As a result, we now have what is called the “Internet of Things” (IoT), the umbrella term for anything that connects to the internet. As this market continues to evolve, we have to ask what it means for us: Where does IoT go next? Should we be concerned about security and privacy? What are the consequences if something goes wrong? Will mankind be able to fully understand IoT or will we eventually be outsmarted by devices? Have we already reached that point?
The WiT Regatta Pop-Up is a free, inclusive event but space is limited and tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Women and men in any role and at any career level in tech are welcome to attend. Reserve your spot today!
