Live Event

Every one of us has, at some point, felt like a fraud. This is especially true in tech and for women. We are surrounded by brilliant, technical people, and our livelihoods depend on our ability to learn complex systems, APIs, and architectures. Managing all of this pressure is daunting and can leave us feeling isolated. This talk will give you an inside look into what success looks like from someone who also deals with imposter syndrome. You’ll hear inspiring stories and coping mechanisms, and have the chance to ask questions live during the session. Session led by Stephanie Wong, Developer Advocate at Google.

Google Cloud and Soul Academy Partner

"I don't have an occupation.. I think now is the time for me to get back. That's when I saw the Soul Academy Opportunity in partnership with Google Cloud.. and six months later I was invited to part of the Soul Academy team but this time on the other side. That's when the world... you know when the world gets colorful?"

Pride in Belonging

June is one of the most important months of the year. It’s a month full of revindication, power, and love. Did you guess it? Of course, it’s LGTB+ Pride Month! This year, we’re supporting LGBTQ+ communities with commitments to help fund and celebrate inclusive spaces that foster belonging for all.

“I think warmth is the most important feature we offer. Just having people come in and feel like they’re meant to be there.”
