Presented by WWCode London
Women Who Code London invites you to the launch of the community Bookclub, where we discuss books, talks and other media around topics that are of interest to our community. To kick us off with the first topic, we invite you to join us for a Panel Discussion "Leadership: Finding Your Voice".
We did a poll in Women Who Code London and found that leadership is an area of interest for our community. Recognizing the group of diverse women and the amazing resources that already exist, we want to create an experience where our members come together to support each other and learn together.
We believe that leadership is something you can demonstrate whether you are an individual contributor or in a formal leadership role. The series will be geared towards both women who are already in leadership roles and those who are currently individual contributor.
Every month, we will examine a different resource together. The first 30 minutes will be dedicated to studying the content and the second 30 minutes will be a focused discussion. We will cover topics like leading in the face of adversity, having difficult conversations and leading without formal authority. The best part is we will structure the sessions in a way where you can drop in and out based on the topics that are most relevant to you.
