Triangirls Newsletter - ⚡️Remote Event 🎟 Confidence, Overcoming Fear and Goal Setting 💪

We’re proud to announce that with the help of our sponsors we’ve managed to raise £1,000 for BLMUK. We stand for justice and equality - We ask our community to use their voice and their platform to do the same.
We highly recommend grabbing yourself a Hustle Crew Membership for access to workshops and resources on how to be an ambassador of inclusion in your community and drive change in your workplace. It will give you the skills to engage in conversations about racism, sexism and other forms of oppression.

🎟 Triangirls Talks
After the success of our first remote event, we have another one coming up this week! Join us for a couple of hours on Thursday evening for a packed out evening of inspirational lightning talks.
🎤 Our fantastic speakers:
Kish Modasia - Mindfulness
Kish will be taking us on a journey of mindfulness to help each of us find the courage to stop, take a few breaths, and relax in just a matter of seconds.
Lara Mendonça - Design for belonging
Tech is shaping the future of our planet. It’s changing how we have fun, vote, shop, communicate. It’s also affecting our sense of belonging, in our personal and professional relationships, and collectively.
But why does belonging matter to designers? And how do we design to hold space for everyone to feel truly empowered to speak up and change the structures in society?
This talk will show how we can create a path for affecting change: as a person; as a designer; as a team member; and as a leader.
Naomi Gibson - Creating psychological safety in teams
Temi Olukoko - 100 days of code to first job
How the 100 days of code challenge helped prepare her for her first developer role by learning how to build various web applications.
Racheal Idowu - Why career changes are scary but worth it
Nicole Ingra - Side project: shrtcttng
Like many, I started this year full of plans and hope. I had quit my job to move to Barcelona, and become a nomad-ish freelance. But when Covid hit Europe & the rest of the Western world, it felt as if my life was put on hold, with circumstances beyond my control. So I decided to use my energy and newly found time to bring to life a passion project - to experiment, giving fewer fucks and reinvent once again.
During our event, we have a segment where the floor can be yours for 5-10 minutes. The content is up to you, whether you’d like to share a funny story, or tell us you are hiring, or share a project you are working on. Let us know you’d like some time by replying to this email.
💥 Building confidence, overcoming fear, and goal setting
