Virtual Women + Tech Meetup – Designing Life On Purpose

Designing Life On Purpose: How the Principles of Placemaking Can Influence Our Personal Wellbeing 

Placemaking is an approach to the planning, design and management of public spaces. But behind the ideas of placemaking are ideas about what it means to be human. Candi Shelton explores the 11 principles of Placemaking and helps us see how we can apply these to our personal lives to help us design the kind of life we really want.

Ladies of Atlanta, it’s time to come together to make the phrase “Women in Tech” obsolete!

Our Village can be the one to make women in tech the status quo.
