UPDATE: RSVPs are now closed for Hear + Now. Please bring your free Splash ticket to the event on Wednesday to gain entry. If you do not have a ticket, you will not be able to attend this quarter's Hear + Now, but we hope you will join us for the next one.
Hear + Now is a lightning talk series that gives a voice to accomplished engineers across the tech industry. This event is hosted quarterly by Square WomEng. We've recently improved the way we run Hear + Now to make this event a more inclusive space. We welcome and encourage all women, men, and nonbinary people who identify as having a marginalized identity and/or being an ally to attend. Read more about this change on the Square Corner blog.
This quarter's Hear + Now will be a discussion night, focused on creating a safe space for intentional conversation. We're going to follow a Birds of a Feather format, by breaking out into smaller groups based on discussing topics of shared interest. Everyone who attends will have the chance to propose the topics they'd like to discuss!
To get you brainstorming about possible topics to propose, here are some that we're interested in talking about:
* How do you address bias in your workplace?
* How do you act as an ally to other underrepresented groups?
* What's the most supportive community you've found in tech, and what makes them successful?
We're excited about spending time with all of you and hearing your perspectives and stories!
Light food and non-alcoholic drinks will be served, so feel free to come early and mingle.
You must RSVP by Monday, November 28 at 12:00 PM PDT. Any guests without a RSVP will be denied entry to this event. See the Logistics section below for details.
