Terms and Conditions
Tech SHEssions is a free program altruistically organized in Madrid by Commit to help those women who want to start talking at tech events. It consists of two blocks:
- Mentoring. Mentees work with their mentors to prepare some talks (the topic they prefer) and present them to the rest of the program. There are three talks: the first one of 10 minutes, the second one of 15, and the third one of 20. Also, they receive feedback on their presentations.
- Training. Women give talks and webinars on useful topics for the students (how to prepare good presentations, how to overcome the fear of the stage, advice for a good speech).
