Attending Softec's 2018 Women In Technology Dinner

Just over a week ago, the ladies of SoCreate (and our CEO and Founder, Justin Couto) had the opportunity to attend Softec’s 4th Annual Women in Technology Dinner.

Softec is our Central Coast’s very own software and technology association. Their organization, which has been around for over 20 years, sponsors technology-themed networking and educational events for their 2,000+ members and the San Luis Obispo community.

This year’s event, which took place on Wednesday, April 18, centered around the importance of diversity in the workplace.

The event opened with an hour of networking and appetizers. Our team had the chance to talk with other local women that work in the technology space in San Luis Obispo, while also enjoying some tasty snacks from local restaurant, Splash Café.

Once the opening social hour was over, we all took a seat to listen to the evening’s presentations by keynote speakers:

  • Denise Isom

    Chair of the Ethnic Studies Department and Associate Faculty Director in the Office of University Diversity and Inclusion, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo

  • Amaya Weddle

    Director of Research and Insights, MINDBODY

  • Brittany McCrigler

    Director of Education Services, iFixit

While each presenter shared their own unique take on the importance of diversity in the workplace, the underlying message for all 3 presentations was the same:

Diverse teams are the strongest teams!

It is not uncommon for companies to mistakenly underestimate the importance of having a diverse workforce. Diversity in the workplace provides us with the opportunity to think in new ways, experience greater levels of innovation and creativity, and hold a better understanding for the world around us.

This event's message was also a great reminder about the important role that diversity plays in the screenwriting world, as well. From our company's inception, it has been a top priority for us to provide a platform that welcomes a wide variety of stories and voices. We look forward to SoCreate opening the door to more diverse writer voices. By removing some of the barriers to entry imposed by other screenwriting software, we have the opportunity to give EVERY writer the chance and platform to share their unique story.

We all had a fantastic time listening to each of the speakers share their own experiences and struggles they’ve faced in their own roles, and we absolutely cannot wait to see what the 2019 Women in Technology Dinner has in store for us all.

Until next time,

Few but mighty SoCreate ladies lunch alli Unger, Amber Black, and Rosa Couto

Few but Mighty! SoCreate's First-Ever Monthly Ladies Lunch

Last week, our three SoCreate ladies met up for the first-EVER SoCreate Monthly Ladies Lunch. With 17 total SoCreate team members, made up of 14 guys and only 3 ladies, you can imagine how nice it was for our gals to get together for lunch to just chat. The idea for the monthly Ladies Lunch actually did not come from one of us, but rather from our founder and CEO, Justin Couto. He came to me about a month ago with the idea of implementing these monthly get-togethers to give our ladies a chance to hang out away from all of that 'office testosterone.' ;) As we continue to grow as a company...

Summer Fitness Challenge - Day 100 Done!

SoCreate Summer Fitness Challenge 2016 - Day 100 Done! On Tuesday of this week it came down to a handful of warriors left charging down Day 100 of the SoCreate Summer Fitness Challenge 2016. It was a long fought battle of will, determination, and stamina. This challenge was tough, really tough. For me, it proved to be one of the most difficult challenge I have attempted. Thankfully, I was able to push through and complete it. The overall consensus was that the relentless no days off pace of the challenge was grueling and the downfall of most that couldn’t continue. Making up a missed day while...
