As in the past couple of years, I have several speaking engagements coming up, as we go into Black History Month and the Spring season. I've been pulling back a bit, though, so this year's list is not as busy as before. As you'll see, we are starting to get back to in person events, so my usual "Renate on Web" title for this post had to be edited! :)
Here's what I have going on for the first half of 2023. Where possible, I'll include a link where you can get more information and register for the events, if interested. I will also indicate with ($) at the end of each event that is not free. Here goes!

One of the best things about returning to in person is thinking about seeing gen-friends, old and new! I am looking forward to seeing and meeting as many of you, as possible, at these upcoming events!
P.S. This post will be updated as additional events are added. If you are interested in having me as a speaker for your organization, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to request my current list of topics. I'd love to hear from you!
