August 04: Women in Tech Weekly Issue 70

In Partnership with my Self-Worth Strengthening Affirmations and Gratitude Prompts

Happy Tuesday! This week’s issue has so much goodness – I hope you’re ready to get inspired and celebrate these awesome women with me 🥰

If you’d like to submit anything for next week’s issue, please do so using the submission form at the bottom of this post.

New Project 🌟

Community has been at the centre of everything I do for years now ❤️ I think that notion of belonging, support and sisterhood is the best way to raise everyone’s level. It’s the best way to generate ideas, solve problems and create better, more inclusive products and services. It raises everyone’s level!

I’ve been itching to create a community for women in STEM for years now and it’s time to do that. I feel like it’s now or never! Watch this space for upcoming updates 🥰 If you’d like to be the first to know when it launches, please express your interest by filling out the form below!

Let me know when the community launches!

I’m pausing Featured posts as I’m focusing more of my energy on building this. I hope that the result will help you find and connect with even more strong, inspiring, like-minded, stereotype-breaking women in STEM!

Celebrations 🥂🎉

Anastasia got one more step closer to taking control of her anxiety and having a consistently confident state of mind!

In her own words:

“I have been analysing my behaviour in different anxiety-inducing situations, whether it’s at work or in my personal life. There are 3 questions that I ask myself now, before an interview or an important meeting, which help me to work through my anxieties and build long-term confidence. I think it can be useful for anyone, who’s struggling with feeling confident and for whom all the usual confidence-boost tips don’t seem to work.”

Did you know that today only 24% of computer scientists are women? So glad to be one of them and I'm really looking forward to see this percentage growing! 👩🏻‍💻💪🏼⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ 📸@digital.wander
