🌷🌺🌸Spring is finally here! 🌸🌺🌷
The days are getting longer and the weather is finally getting a bit warmer too. The change in the seasons has definitely put a spring in our step (sorry about the pun!) and we’re really looking forward to our next event in April.

✨What happened in March
In March we had our first event of 2021 where we partnered up with Coding Black Females and our sponsor Cleo. We had multiple sessions where we found out how to charge our career progression with actionable steps from Ria.
Here is the worksheet from Ria’s session here
We also had a session with Coding Black Females where they spoke about the power of community and how a community can help you to progress on your journey. Charlene and Jessie have inspired us even more with their knowledge and experiences in running a community.
We’re over the moon about how this event went so thank you to Cleo for sponsoring the event and making it happen.
😱Missed it? Don’t worry, we’ll have some blog posts soon from our community talking about the event.
🌈 Swag Update
Last month we were due to give away some notebooks for those who attended the event but realised we did record who actually attended. So we’re opening up the offering to your newsletter subscribers who live in the UK!
Fill out the form above and we’ll select 50 random people based in UK to receive a notebook from us. This notebook has been made possible by the fabulous Brendan Kearns who kindly donated to Triangirls in celebration of International Women’s Day.
These bespoke positivity journals have been created with the wonderful Talk & Tell! So keep your eyes peeled once we’re ready to send out the notebooks.
🗓 Upcoming Events
We’re really excited to announce our next event titled You Do You! We’ll be reflecting on how we can take ownership of self-doubts, show up and invest in ourselves.
We have 3 speakers for our April event:
Harpreet with her talk ‘Me, myself and I. Dealing with self-doubt during remote work’. Sophie talking to us about how we can show up for ourselves and finally Rina, former Ballerina turned User Experience Designer will be speaking to us about investing in ourselves and personal branding.
Also at the end of the event, we’ll be leaving the room open for 15 minutes where we invite you all to discuss the event, talk about what you’ve learnt or maybe ask a few follow up questions.
Help us shape our events
Triangirls is a community for you, and we want as many of you involved as possible. That’s why we want to hear from you. We’ve put together a super quick survey to find out what you would like from us in 2021 as well as the best way for us to get that content to you.

🔦 Spotlight Series
Introducing Joy Nwaiwu Backend Developer and Technical Writer
“I have learnt that there are really no limitations except the ones you set yourself. Learning is a process, one that you don’t get to skip steps because eventually, you would always have to pick up where you left off.”

Triangirls are looking to raise the profiles of women and non-binary people in tech. Interested in participating in our spotlight series? Email us at hello@triangirls.com.

🙌 Success stories
At the start of last year, we ran an event on how to smash 2020. The event was a huge success mainly because of our wonderful speakers. Mina Bach spoke for the first time at Triangirls and educated us on how bullet journals could help you manage and make meaningful progress on your goals.
