Women in MIDS: Speaking Up In Public: Practice Your Voice In a Safe Space
Open to all women-identifying MIDS students and faculty.
Women in MIDS Coffee Meetup this week is going to be an interactive session where we all can get a chance to hone our public speaking skills. We will use PowerPoint Karaoke, an improvisational activity in which a participant must deliver a presentation based on a set of slides that they have never seen before for this.
Every round, 1–5 people will volunteer to speak with a deck that anyone can bring and put up for the volunteers. We encourage people to bring slide decks about any topic. 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 volunteers.
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.
