Description:

We all walk different paths in life and our journeys into the technology industry are no different. Some have been building robots from a young age and others have quite literally stumbled into the field by accident. However you landed where you are today, we want to hear from you!

The purpose of the inaugural Amplify Open Mic event is to showcase all the ways underrepresented people have blazed (or are blazing) their trails. SPOILER ALERT: no two paths are the same; they are as diverse and unique as the people walking them. Okay, maybe that wasn't the plot twist of the century - you probably already knew that. But you might be surprised to discover unity, inspiration, motivation, and even confidence stems from sharing our diverse experiences.

Come share your experience and/or learn from others - whatever you are comfortable with.

Schedule:

  • 5:30 - 6:00pm: Networking

  • 6:00 - 7:00pm: Open Mic

  • 7:00 - 7:30pm: Networking

For those interested in speaking: you will have up to five minutes to share in whatever format you would like. We'd love to hear about where you started, where you are now, and where you're aiming yourself for the future. This is a brave space where vulnerability, honesty, humilty, and humor are all welcome and encouraged. Sharing your story can shine a light for others; your hindsight can be another's foresight. You might even learn something new about yourself in the process. For inspiration, check out Brene Brown's TED Talk on the Power of Vulnerability.

Let's Cowork! If you'd like to avoid the dumpster fire that is metro-area traffic these days, or if you'd just like a change of scenery, feel free to utilize Gather Cafe in Galvanize's public lobby before the event. They have coffee, snacks, and free wifi.
