Thirteen years ago I was completely incapable of communicating, and when confronted, was an extremely difficult person to interact with. Today I am a Senior Project Manager and a certified communication coach who's helping to change the lives of the difficult people I now can empathize with. After being raised in two highly abusive homes, I underwent a decade of extensive therapy, pursued an education in self-development, and drastically altered my perception of human to human interaction. These changes allowed me to significantly transform my personal life and career in the last two years - including a 50% raise in salary! In this chat, I want you to walk away with: Tips for identifying difficult mindsets Methods for dealing with internal mindset shifts Strategies to better communicate with friends, peers, and coworkers

As a black, queer womxn who is the Head of Community for HER App, the largest social and dating app for LGBTQ+ womxn and queer people, I’ve worked from the ground up to launch and grow a network that supports the wants and needs of over 5 million LGBTQ+ womxn, trans and non-binary folks who don't always get the opportunity to bring their voices to the table. From fostering online communities and in-person events to managing social media, content creation, email marketing, and customer support, I’ve discovered that when our users engage in the community we’ve built, they want to know that their opinions are being heard. In this chat, I want you to walk away with: How to establish a community where your members’ voices are heard How to engage with them How to utilize these responses for product improvements
There isn't any "one size fits all" approach to mitigating bias in tech. In reality, the current processes and trainings fail because they don't improve our own innate biases, something that can only be changed when looking at an organization (and oneself) systematically. KeyAnna Schmiedl, Global Head, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Wayfair is joining us for a live Q&A to discuss the challenges we face when combatting bias and how we can each play a role in mitigating bias through systematic change.
