Join WordPress.com for an International Women’s Day Livestream Panel

It’s happening Friday, March 8 2019 at 6 pm UTC / 1 pm ET / 10 am PT.

On International Women’s Day this Friday, WordPress.com parent company Automattic is hosting four outstanding women tech leaders for a livestreamed conversation about professional advancement, technology, and mutual support as we strive for equity in the workplace.

It’s happening Friday, March 8 at 6 pm UTC / 1 pm ET / 10 am PT. Signups are limited to 500 people, so RSVP now to reserve a spot. You can also follow the conversation on Twitter at the hashtags #a8cIWD2019 and #IWD2019.

We’re proud to welcome panelists with a diverse range of expertise. Eli Budelli is WordPress.com’s lead of mobile development; Yelp software engineer Tanvi Patel is part of the review platform’s core web team and an outspoken advocate for equality in tech and health; Crystle Johnson, senior manager of diversity and inclusion at Pandora, is an expert in embedding inclusion in hiring and talent retention; she is also the founder of the Red Lip Collective, which empowers young women of color through mentorship and professional development. And Diana Chiu, senior manager of business development at DuckDuckGo, brings deep knowledge of partnerships and M&A cultivated over a decade working across tech, aviation, and biotech. The event will be moderated by Maria Scarpello, customer success advocate for Automattic.

The hour-long discussion will cover how to develop women leaders, create support systems for sustainable careers, and harness the power of self-awareness and self-validation.

As a distributed company with more than 800 employees in over 60 countries, Automattic sees inclusion and diversity as a constantly evolving idea. We know that diverse teams make better products, and we also know that there is always more work to do. We hope that attendees of this panel, across career stages, gender, and location, will leave with at least one new strategy for using their voice at work and uplifting the voices of others.

DES Daughter Network Blog New Design

New header image, new WordPress theme and new colours for 2016!

With 2016 approaching, we thought it was time for few changes…

Fist, the header image. This “three wise doctors looking at us” awesome graphic is © and courtesy of Artist and DES awareness supporter Alberto Sebastiani.

You’ve been exposed to DES,
so what?

Some posts such as My DES Daughter Journey – Doctors (03.2011), Wanted: DES Aware Doctors (04.2011) and A focus group study of DES daughters: implications for health care providers (2000 study) mentioned the DES victims distrust of the medical profession. I cannot think of a better image to illustrate the DES cause.

Many thanks to Alberto for his long time support. Here are few links for you to visit Albertos’s blog, website and Twitter.
