Wings-our new project for women in design/tech
Tuesday, 21 February 2012 09:05

Wings-logoWings - our new workshops for women in design & tech project.

We're developing a project for women who want to learn new skills, build on their industry knowledge or who feel concerned that their skills are out-dated. We'd love to involve you, hear your thoughts, feedback and ideas on this project and how we could improve it.

Wings is workshop based with one-day courses on subjects such as:
- Mobile app design
- User experience design
- Coding PHP, the basics
- Being a confident speaker, to clients and audiences

These subjects aren't set in stone and soon we'll ask you to vote on which workshops you think should be made available.

 

How the workshops will work

Duration: 1 day
Cost: Free, buffet lunch
Availability: 5 workshops, 10-15 places on each, one workshop per person only.
Location: at physical venues in the East of England and London

The workshops will be run by super women in the industry. Take-away guides and booklets will be provided. We're looking to offer these workshops to women most in need; who are either unemployed, returning to work after having families or are looking to change careers. The workshop materials will be made available on our website for those unable to attend and possibly some video too.

The aim of this project is to encourage those super talented women out there who are having a tough time, to get their lives back-on-track. To inspire them to start their own businesses, learn something new and go for that top job.

 

We really need your support to make sure this project is a success. We're currently seeking funding to make this happen so that we can support emerging talent and foster new collaborations. If you'd like to get involved get in touch. We're also looking for women to run the workshops (this is a paid position) so if you'd like to share your hard earned wisdom let us know get in touch.

 

 

 

 

 
The Power of One – A personal Review
Monday, 13 February 2012 00:00

As part of my connection with the Web Heroines project Keri asked me to listen in on one of the sessions and write up a review from the website.  I attended one of the sessions on day one which was led by inspirational entrepreneur, public speaker and former librarian, Julie Howell,who was just one of several fantastic speakers who took part in the Emerge Mini Conference.

Who is Julie Howell?
Julie started her career as a custodian of information (librarian!) and has so far taken everything life has thrown at her to achieve what is frankly a brilliant career.This journey saw her win a special lifetime achievement award for her work with the RNIB and her efforts to bring digital access to people with disabilities.
