Event description


We are SOLD OUT at space capacity.

Here are some of our other (just as awesome!) upcoming events:

August 27th: Fuckup Nights Toronto: Blockchain & Failure themed event at Sandbox by DMZ

September 19th: Fuckup Nights Toronto Vol XXVII at Shopify

Data shows that women respond to failure differently than men. When women make mistakes, they’re more likely to interpret the setback as a sign they lack ability. Men, on the other hand, tend to attribute failure to more controllable circumstances.

Our perception of failure impacts how quickly we bounce back and start up a new project or business. Failing well is a skill. That's why we've teamed up with Slack to host a special event featuring an amazing all-women roster of speakers sharing their failure stories and lessons learned.

This event and community is open to everyone!

WTF is Fuckup Nights?

Failure is a part of any success story, but we don't talk about it enough. We've all been to plenty of events where people tell you how they hacked, hustled, and created their success, but very few where someone gets up and says "I totally messed up, and this is what you can learn from it."

Fuckup Nights Toronto is part a global speaker series and community where stories of failed businesses and projects are shared in 300+ cities. Each speaker is given 10 minutes and is able to use 10 images. After each speaker, there’s a Q&A session, as well as time for mingling and drinks!

What is Slack?

Slack is a collaboration hub where you and your team can work together to get things done. From project kickoffs to budget discussions, and to everything in between — Slack has you covered. Slack is where work flows. It's where the people you need, the information you share, and the tools you use come together to get things done.

This event is in partnership with Slack's Women’s Employee Resource Group (ERG). Through recruiting and networking events, guest speakers, internal mentoring relationships, workshops and more, the ERG has created new opportunities for women to advance their skills, elevate their profiles and bring more talented women into Slack.
