Encourage. Energize. Empower.


There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women.  – Kofi Annan


In the above quote, Secretary Annan was referring to women in developing nations.  However, it’s just as apt a description of women in technology. 
Encourage. Energize. Empower.  Those are pretty tall orders. The YOU is implied. How about we imply instead that it’s WE? As working women with a voice,  WE need to support each other. WE need to encourage each other to try harder, to reach farther and to stand taller. WE need to energize each other when we’re tired, when we stumble and when we need to rest. 
Where should you start? How about right here?  Here is a great place to start. 
We’ll do it together.

Busy is a Four Letter Word

If I ask you, "How are you?", is your default answer, "I'm so busy!"? Why do we measure our worth by how much we are doing, rather than by the value of what we do? Are we busy doing the truly important things that will bring lasting happiness? What does this have to do with a code camp? Join Jes as she shares with you how she, too, was too busy for too long, but is learning how to do less, more productive, and have bigger impact.
