May 11: Women in Tech Weekly Issue 110

We're revamping this newsletter and want to hear your thoughts on it via this quick survey. It will take 3 minutes max!

It feels like every week there are headlines surrounding more violence and suppression around the world! Recently, there has been a lot of news related to the conflict in East Jerusalem. There are no words to make any of these situations better, but we want to acknowledge the tragedies happening in the world rather than turn a blind eye and pretend everything is okay! Know that this community is here for all of you who are affected by this week's (or any week's) events like this! Please let us know how we can support you!

While we have all of these tragedies going on in the world, we do hope that we can at least provide you with some light by celebrating all the badass women in tech and help motivate you this week with some resources! 🎉

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. No matter how big or small, we want to hear from you!

What is toxic positivity? Toxic positivity is the belief that no matter how dire or difficult a situation is, people should maintain a positive mindset. It's a "good vibes only" approach to life.

Behavioural interviews for Software Engineers are just as important as technical interviews. It can be tricky to navigate these interviews if you're new to the industry so its worth preparing for them beforehand and putting a lot of effort into them.
