verynice Women's Design Salon: Future Tech

The verynice Women’s Design Salon is an intimate series that empowers our local creative community of women by bringing them together, along with outside experts, to discuss real issues, current events, and new ideas. While the series is focused on empowering women, all are welcome to attend and contribute.

Our break-out activities will be facilitated by some amazing volunteers including Creative Strategist, Jessica Wen, verynice Marketing and Impact Coordinator, Anna Zigmond, UX Designer, Tiffany Estrella, and SapientRazorfish Designer, Sam Cabrera.
