Women's Blockchain & Cryptocurrency for Beginners: San Jose

DESCRIPTION

There is likely to be an entirely new generation of billionaires in the making as blockchain and cryptocurrency technology takes hold in the mainstream, as well as quite a few multi-millionaires amongst the "early adopters" still getting in now.

Unfortunately, many of the same structural problems that plague traditional finance are already emerging in cryptocurrency, where women make up less than 4% of total investors.

Join Gyals Network for an intersectional dialogue on the fundamentals of blockchain and cryptocurrency and learn how it will shape our future. All attendees will recieve our Blockchain and Cryptocurrency 101 material before the event. Join this event if you are seeking answers to the following:

  • Blockchain and cryptocurrency: What is it?

  • Cryptocurrency: Is it safe? How is it real? How does it have value?

  • How are institutions investing in blockchain and cryptocurrency?

  • Confusing press: Blockchain and cryptocurrency in the media

  • How do I get involved? Is too late to invest?

  • How to get a career in blockchain/cryptocurrency?

The all-women panel discussion will be led by:

  • Casey Caruso, Partner Technology Manager at Google:Casey Caruso is a blockchain investor and engineer who originally got involved in crypto as a miner. Casey organizes the San Francisco BlockchainMeetup@Google and works as a Partner Technology Manager on Google Search. Caseystarted her career conducting research at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics lab, while pursuing her M.S. in Computer Science, and went on to start Bakround, a SaaS company in the machine learning space. Most recently, Casey moved to the Bay Area to follow her interests in blockchain and evolutionary technology.

Emotional Wellness For Women and People of Color

Cheers to those of us who struggle passionately, and intelligently to BE our best but don't always FEEL our best.

  • Vivian Lee Pichardo, Psy.D. Psychotherapist 
  • Mei-Hua Gee, Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist 77452
  • Njambi "Brocollete" Gibson, Wellness Evangelist
  • Kristina Lembesis, Gyals Network

In this program we will cover the following:

  • Exercise how to be attentive to your thoughts, feelings and behaviors

  • Become aware and accepting of your true feelings

  • Remain optimistic about life despite disappointment and fustration

  • Source and form your "tribe" to help you through hard times

Program Schedule

  • 6:30-7:00 - Sign up, Appetizers/Beverages and Networking

Juicy Talks Series: Self Love

 An intimate conversation series hosted by Gyals Network.

An intimate conversation series hosted by Gyals Network.

Lets talk self love!

Join us for an evening of radical self-love to answer the question: "How do you practice radical self-love and what do you hope to learn from others?" 

This talk is inspired by the book, "The Body is not an Apology Movement"  by Sonya Renee Taylor.  

More on Sonya:

She gave an inspiring talk at TEDxMarin back in October and her new book is set to release later next week. 

A friend first introduced to her SpokenWord over 5 years ago and found her strength and confidence inspiring. Sonya has continued to travel the global and give powerful performances like this one on SnapJudgement.  Now there is a movement and a following.   By finding our own inner strength we can then go on to do bigger work in our community.

This talk will be help in San Francisco.  Exact location details will be sent before the event.
