About the speaker

She writes and speaks about tech industry culture and ethics, relentlessly pushing towards more diversity and welcoming spaces. With over twenty conferences under her belt, Karolina is also a seasoned organiser, previously curating such well-known events as JSConf and CSSConf Australia or JSConf Europe.
In 1987, Billy Blue Creative (which blossomed from the infamous Billy Blue Magazine) decided to open a tiny design school to train creative folk who would eventually contribute to projects circling the design studio and creative department. A crowd of about four was expected. Sixty-six people enrolled and there was a long waiting list…
In essence, the college was created by industry for industry and we’ve been building on that concept in everything we cultivate. Since opening our college doors 25+ years back, Billy Blue College of Design has launched the careers thousands of graduate creatives and thought leaders, qualified and ready to make their mark in the design and creative industries.
Science Gallery Melbourne is fascinated by the fact that Barbra Streisand cloned her dogs. Science Gallery Melbourne is a dynamic new gallery at The University of Melbourne that will engage young adults 15 years and older through the intersections of art, science & technology.
Part of an international network, the gallery will open in 2020 as part of an exciting innovation precinct in Melbourne. The upcoming Science Gallery exhibition PERFECTION runs from September 12 to November 3rd at the University of Melbourne’s Melbourne School of Design in Carlton and will explore what it means to pursue perfection in a non-perfect world.

Here at Clement we’re about two things: Good coffee and Good People. Like all fruit, coffee is seasonal. Depending on the time of year, we roast and sell the freshest, tastiest coffee from around the globe. Our baristas don’t just make coffee - they love it. They take the time to learn about where it comes from and how it’s best served.
