Join us Jan 29-Feb 2- 2018 for the inaugural Women in Tech Regatta Week.

The Regatta is a curated collection of events, workshops and conversations designed to connect women in tech to mentors, peers, resources and to the power of community. We will dwell in the realm of what’s possible, rather than simply what is.

Sessions are grouped thematically and each session will be hosted at one of five ports. Attend all or create a personalized itinerary aligned to your specific interests, by checking off the sessions below.

Mindfulness in action
What is mindfulness and how can it benefit us in our daily lives, not as an obscure concept, but as something that improves our personal and professional lives and creates a contented mind. 
Mindfulness practice is about becoming lighter, it’s about not letting anything stick to you and become a concept. Come to talk about how mindfulness practice is about facts, not fiction.

Find Your Zen - Connect with Others
Everyday we experience a myriad of conversations and opportunities to connect. These range from difficult conversations we stress over, to the mundane interactions we are hardly present for. Too often we are stressed, frazzled or distracted and miss the opportunity each conversation presents. What if there were three simple steps that could help you bring down your stress and create more calm, presence and openness, allowing you to meaningfully connect with whoever you are talking to? 

3) Deidre Sirianni- Make Your Own Damn Rules  (8:30 - 8:45 pm)
