Open to all women-identifying MIDS students and faculty.

Women in MIDS Coffee Meetup this week is bringing back a popular event from last semester: PowerPoint Karaoke. It will be an interactive session for all of us to get a chance to hone our public speaking skills. PowerPoint Karaoke is an improvisational activity in which a participant must deliver a presentation based on a set of slides that they have never seen before.

Every round, 1-5 people will volunteer to speak with a deck that anyone can bring and put up for the volunteers. We will have 3-4 presentations. The speakers can choose to receive feedback or not. After the talk and feedback, we will move to the next presentation presented by another round of volunteer(s).

Join us in a practice to boost your confidence in public speaking or help others do so.

Women in MIDS is hosting a bi-weekly Coffee Meetup Series this semester. Each meetup will have 30 minutes dedicated to speakers, industry-relevant videos, and other activities to empower Women in Data Science, and the remaining 30 minutes open for discussions.
