Our last Networking Night of 2015 will be at Puppet Labs, as part of the Women + Tech Holiday Party. The theme for the night will be “Raise Your Voice,” and not only will the women of Puppet Labs be giving great lightning talks about the theme, but we will also be celebrating the holidays and another wonderful year!

Lightning Talks:

- Grace Andrews, Associate Technical Solutions Engineer, Customer Success, Unspoken Words: The Power of Writing in the Workplace 

Learn how to find your voice at work by not speaking at all. Grace will share her experience of creating and writing an internal blog at Puppet Labs, and how that helped her make friends, solidify concepts and exchange knowledge with coworkers!

- Pamela Ju, Sr. Marketing Analyst, Business Optimization, Speaking Loudly: Literally Raising Your Voice

Pamela will explore different ways to make yourself heard. As an opinionated woman who doesn’t much like meetings, she has been testing different approaches to verbal communication in the workplace, and learning how to own the results. And yes, sometimes you just need to talk louder.

Hailee Kenney, Software Engineer, Product and Technology, Finding Your Voice: Taking Action to Build Confidence

This talk will be about building the confidence you need to speak up. It’s difficult to take risks and step out of your comfort zone, but doing so can help you find your voice and learn to communicate effectively. Hailee will share how making conscious decisions to challenge herself helped her to become more confident and learn to speak up.
