  1. I always greatly appreciate talks/panels about mental health in the tech industry. Based on my own experience, it’s something the majority of people in this industry struggle with but so rarely talk about. Removing the stigma by talking about it publicly in addition to providing helpful tools to deal with it helps in so many ways!
