Women in Blockchain Breakfast
Two upcoming events offer the opportunity to learn more about entrepreneurship and new technologies, including the blockchain.
The Blockchain Summit, scheduled for Sept. 24 and 25 at the Talaris Conference Center in Seattle, is the perfect forum for women who are interested in entrepreneurship and technology. As a precursor, you can participate in the Women in Blockchain Breakfast on Sept. 11 at the Bellevue Arts Museum.
Whether you are looking at new opportunities in technology or interested in advancing an established career, you can network with some of the most prominent women in the blockchain arena. That in itself makes this breakfast worth attending, but the breakfast will also benefit a good cause. All proceeds will go to the Ada Developers Academy, a not-for-profit organization that offers training to women in software development, as well as gender-diverse people in Seattle and the surrounding area.
While experts will touch on a variety of blockchain topics at this event, the Women in Blockchain Breakfast will have a much broader reach. As part of the agenda, panelists will share stories as to how the blockchain changed their careers and encouraged community involvement. Compared to the summit, this breakfast will take a more conversational and laidback approach. Along with providing personal narratives, successful women will talk about diversity in the tech industry, including the blockchain.
Contributions from Martin Davis PLLC, Perkins Cole, and Reflective Venture Partnerships make the event possible. The event also is part of Women in Blockchain-Seattle, a monthly meetup series where female tech enthusiasts and professionals come together regardless of their experience level. While this initiative is still in its infancy, starting only one year ago, it has already become one of the top forums where women in the industry become empowered by sharing ideas.
At the 2018 Women in Blockchain Breakfast, you can expect to see many prominent figures, including Andrea Louie, the Seattle founder of the event. Other leaders include Perianne Boring, founder and president of the Chamber of Digital Commerce; Martha Montoya, founder and CEO of Agtools; Dominique Shelton, partner at Perkins Cole; and Gwen Sheridan, COO of New Alchemy.
Although these women have diverse backgrounds, they share a passion for technology.
“I have had the good fortune to work in a number of different industries: Human Capital Management software, consulting, and others,” Sheridan said. “While I enjoyed those experiences, I have never found anything to be as exciting and intellectually challenging as blockchain.”
If you are a professional female in Seattle who is interested in or involved with the blockchain industry, this event will provide a wealth of knowledge and a desire to learn more. Although the event has “women” in the name, everyone is welcome, regardless of gender, level of expertise, or industry.
