Women Talk Design elevates the best talks about design from women, and empowers event organizers with tools, approaches, and information to engage more women speakers.
The site was founded by Christina Wodtke in 2013. In summer 2017, Christina started a fundraiser to support two of her students, Melissa and Jennifer, as UX interns on the project. Donors directly supported two promising women in tech and design, as well as many more in the future by getting more women on stage where they can inspire the next generation.
After an amazing outpour of support from the community, and research findings highlighting there is a lot of work to be done, Christina recruited Danielle Barnes to incorporate and lead Women Talk Design as a sustainable, effective social enterprise. You can read more about the announcement here.
