The Most Important UI: You

A lightning talk about the lack of self-care in the tech industry and how you can build your own self-care toolkit.

Abstract

Let’s face it, lack of self-care is a problem in the tech industry. We wear exhaustion like a badge of honor, promote unrealistic expectations about loyalty, and often times we neglect our body, heart, and mind’s most basic needs. In this talk, we’ll discuss the scope of this issue and learn how you can build your own self-care toolkit.
