Women in MIDS Coffee Meetup: PowerPoint Karaoke
Open to all women-identifying MIDS students and faculty.
Practice your voice in a safe space
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; maximum speaking length is 5 minutes.
- 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).
Women in MIDS hosts a bi-weekly Coffee Meetup Series. Typically meetups have 30 minutes dedicated to speakers, industry-relevant videos, and other activities to empower Women in Data Science, with the remaining 30 minutes open for discussions.
