Description

Join the #LWTSQUAD and tech leaders at Squarespace on July 19th for an evening of cocktails, mocktails, talks, and networking as we explore how to build your creative confidence with experts in the field.

In such a male dominated field, learning how to talk yourself up and showcase yourself and your work – and to speak to it – is so critical.

This is for LGBTQ women, women of color, transgender + gender non conforming folks, + our allies for an evening to actually connect, learn, and to share how to build your creative confidence.

We're going to have a headshot/photobooth activation downstairs in the lobby. This is a way for us to provide high quality headshots for the community and help curb an out of pocket expense for you. We'll have a drag queen and a drag king helping to help guests bring out a fierce side of themselves, and to advise on hair/makeup/touchups. The photos will be colorful (we'll use special gels for lighting, a la Pose). Signup here: https://goo.gl/forms/Qw5RcKHMgaZLIL8x1.
