Gm and welcome to the Crypto, Culture, & Society newsletter! If you’re new here, get started by learning about our history and mission, exploring how you can contribute to CCS, and subscribing to our calendar.
This is a big one.
After a couple weeks of holidays and seminars, we’re back next week with a stacked slate of workshops and other learning experiences.
We hope learners and alumni alike will make some time next week to join-in and connect and learn before many of us again take time to be with friends and family.
First up, three discussion-based sessions that all go way beyond the financial elements of web3. Come ready to jam.
Fireside Chat: Women & Web3
An informal discussion exploring all things women & web3 with Janelle Chalouhi and Meghan Donohoe of VenusVentures. Michelle Baldwin, cross-CCS and SuperBenefit contributor, will host our conversation with these dynamic web3 women.
