About

Join WNB.rb for a salary negotiation workshop hosted by Fatou Fall! This event will provide valuable insight from an expert who has helped negotiate over 400 job offers in STEM, and is a must for anyone who wants to get the most out of their next job offer.

More about our speaker:

People call me Fatou. I am 29, Senegalese, Harvard alum, Entrepreneur, Forbes 30U30. My areas of focus are Education, Career Development, and Hydroponics. I have been attracted to entrepreneurship for some reason, even though I studied Applied Maths at Harvard. One of the milestones of my entrepreneurial journey was helping in over 400 negotiations of STEM job offers in the tech sector, in my capacity as the ex-cofounder of teamrora.com. My ultimate dream is that one day, 50% of business decision-makers are women worldwide.

WNB.rb’s goal is to support a more diverse group of people to make significant and meaningful contributions to the Ruby world. It is a monthly meetup with technical talks where the speakers and audience members are all women and non-binary people. We hope to provide a brave space for tenured speakers, first-time speakers and everyone in between to interact in a technical capacity. This community seeks to enable developers to grow their technical skill sets and confidence, further promoting inclusion of women and non-binary folks within the Ruby community. 

What happens during each meetup?  On the last Tuesday of every month at 12pm EDT, we host two speakers to give technical talks on Ruby and the related ecosystem. The talks are be 15 minutes each, with 5 minutes Q&A afterwards. Towards the end of the meetups, we have a few minutes where folks can optionally stay online to chat. The meetups last one hour, and we post recordings of each talk afterwards. This meetup will forever be virtual! 

I’m interested in speaking at a future meetup, how can I do that?   We are so glad! Please send an email to jemmaissroff@gmail.com and e.m.giurleo@gmail.com. No need to write anything in depth or fancy. Even if you don’t know what you’d like to talk about or you’re a first time speaker, please reach out and we’ll work with you to put together a talk for a future WNB.rb meetup. 

I don’t identify as woman / non-binary but I’d like to be an ally. How can I best do that?  Thanks for asking! We’ll be sure to post links to all talks to our twitter so you’ll still be able to watch, learn from and share all of our talks. Ways you can be an ally are to continue to advocate for more diverse voices at conferences and other meetups, learn from, elevate, support and/or mentor individuals who add diversity to the space, and share information about this group with anyone who might be interested. 

Do you have a code of conduct?  Yes we do! You can read our code of conduct here.
