About this event

Join us to cheer on new and experienced speakers as they practice short talks during this special Women Talk Design Lightning Talks event, sponsored by Zendesk!

At Women Talk Design, we’re on a mission to amplify the voices of women and nonbinary people. Our lightning talks event offers the opportunity for new and experienced speakers to practice a talk in front of a safe, supportive audience and get feedback. Some of our speakers will be public speaking for the first time. Others will be practicing a talk for an upcoming event or testing out a new talk topic.

We invite you to be part of that supportive audience! Cheer on our speakers, offer feedback, learn something new, and meet the Women Talk Design community. We hope you’ll also leave inspired to speak at a future event.
