Conferences Speaking

Coro Women in Leadership Alumnae Panel

I had a lovely time withย Coro Northern Californiaย as a panelist for their Spring ’20 Women in Leadership Cohort!

Here are some highlights of what I shared:

(1) showing grit and leading with empathy in this new reality โœŠ๐Ÿฝ

(2) how this virtual transition can offer a window into other people’s souls/lives since we have the opportunity to see a more personal side of the person ๐ŸŒ

(3) spotlighting Yuki Ueda as a friend I made from my cohort back in Spring ’18 ๐Ÿ˜Š

(4) my continued involvement with Coro as a host for Coro Fellows, being a judge and offering advice when asked ๐Ÿค

(5) the story behind launching Techqueria‘s COVID-19 fund for undocumented people ๐Ÿ’›

(6) offering Clockwise as a resource for managing your time better and avoiding meeting overload ๐Ÿ•’

Kudos to Hannah S. (also from my cohort!) who helped facilitate the discussion and the other panelists Rezwana Aliya Chisti and Marisa Levine. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ
