Bay Area Amplify: Courageous Communication Workshop with Megan Himan

We have great places to practice our technical skills: Trailhead, online classes, and study groups. But where can we practice critical personal growth skills? How can we tune into personal strengths to find our unique voice and confidence?

Assertive communication, executive presence, and business storytelling are critical skills that are rarely taught, but are key to leveling up your career and owning your confidence.

This is a workshop for normal humans, with normal fears and anxieties. You will learn the tenants of assertive communication, craft a vision of your executive presence, and practice storytelling to leverage your strengths and establish authority.

Equity Salesforce Practitioners: Philly Amplify Kickoff Meeting

There are SO many wonderful Salesforce groups in the Ohana, let alone just in Philadelphia! What you can expect at an Equity Salesforce Practitioners meeting? We're proud to be a regional chapter of Amplify with our own Philly flavor.

*Connection* We're not just looking for our next gig - we're also looking to show up as our full, vibrant selves - women in tech, queer folks, Women of Color, parents, artists, and more. Come to this meetup so that we can get to know you as a Salesforce practitioner and beyond! Oh, and there will definitely be networking - just not the show-offy kind :)

*Inclusivity* We're working hard to build an inclusive space that is rewarding for Super Users, Admins, Developers, Partners, ISVs, and/or job seekers across Nonprofit and For Profit communities. Come as you are!

*Value* We want to make Meetups worth your time - so we're planning for activities that are fun, informative, and immediately beneficial. We'll have a rotating bunch of demos, discussions, and time to earn a Trailhead badge or two so you walk away having accomplished something. Two people on our leadership team are performing artists, so get ready for some fun and goofy activities, too! (Don't worry - two other members of our leadership team prefer to stay home with a knitting project).

*Solidarity* Many of us have faced disappointments and obstacles in our career as underrepresented people in tech. We want to use storytelling, mentorship, and our supportive networks to *amplify* our voices and our careers. We can't do it alone!

Many thanks to our partner, Slalom Consulting, for generously hosting this kick-off event!
