I came across this nice post today by Michelle Redern;

A Letter to A Young Woman in a Hurry

It’s a letter to herself back as a 20 year old.


  1. Slow down to speed up.
  2. Being a rebel can be conforming.
  3. Ask more questions.

It does make me think about whether you should be going fast as a 20 year old and slower when you’re older. But maybe that’s just because it’s what I did. I do wish I said no to some things.

Ever wanted to take just one day out for you? To get shit done? With me? Well now you can. My #GetShitDone days are a practical, fun, joyful, thought-provoking one day Masterclass for women. The whole day is designed and run by me, a woman who gets lots of good shit done and has a heap of fun doing it. Who is it for? For women who want to take one day out of their full lives to reconnect with themselves, their ambition, kickstart their “what’s next” plan, connect and expand their network of driven, ambitious women. What will happen? This is one day where you will check out of your normal life and check into a day that is just about you! There are two components to the day: Knowing Your Shit: You’ll reconnect with your purpose, values & strengths as well as gain greater understanding of why your emotional intelligence skills are female leadership game changers. Getting Your Shit Done: We will use the Knowing Your Shit work to define your leadership brand is, elevate your profile & develop your strategic networking plan. You’ll develop a #GSD plan to up your game, no matter what your game is. This one day Masterclass is an opportunity for professional women to disrupt themselves by stepping out of day-to-day life to stop, breathe, think and importantly reconnect, to themselves and with others. It’s practical, hands on and will be fun! I really value working in safe, collaborative environments, so I work really hard to create an atmosphere where women can learn to use empathy, curiosity and vulnerability to create meaningful connections. This is the perfect opportunity to set your chart for 2019 and beyond. When Will It Happen? Saturdays throughout 2019. Contact Michelle for dates. Where Will It Happen? Advancing Women HQ, Melbourne CBD. Details & Registration: https://mailchi.mp/cec0b8560867/advancing-women-leadership-retreat

Amazing stories here by Espree Devora.


Their intro:

The #womenintech Podcast is hosted by WeAreLATech’s Espree Devora and features inspiring Women in Tech from Engineers, Female Founders, Investors, UX and UI Designers, Journalists all sharing their story how they got to where they are today. The purpose of the show is for every listener to walk away feeling ‘If She Can Do It So Can I’. I call it “actionable empowerment”.


Here is a wonderful story about Jacqueline Sly “National Research Facility That Carries Out Robotic Space and Earth Science Missions”

G.I.R.L.S: girls in robotics

A nice video showing some young women building robots.

It also highlights the commitment you need to make to put it in. You can start fast but it takes a long time to build something from scratch.

My kids love watching Battlebots. It’s a bit violent, but it does show good background on the teams. There are a number of women in the teams, but I haven’t yet seen an all-female team and not nearly enough team-leaders.

Lisa Winter is one of the participants I’ve seen a few times and seems to be a great ambassador for the show and women in technology.
