This event has passed.

Dear attendees,

We regret to inform you that we have to postpone tomorrow’s Woxmn of Color Public Speaking Workshop due to a medical emergency. We are deeply sorry about any inconvenience and will apply all purchased tickets to a rescheduled event. Please allow us a few days to find a new date. If you won't be able to attend during the new date, we will reimburse your ticket.

While we will hold a rescheduled workshop especially for womxn of color attendees, we have a general speaker workshop coming up on August 19th.


Ruchika & Scott



At Ignite Seattle, one of the largest open submission public speaking events in the Pacific Northwest, we believe in the power of storytelling to build inclusive communities.

We’re especially committed to sharing stories that are untold, by storytellers we want to see more of.

If you identify as a womxn of color, please join us for a workshop on how to best tell the stories you already know, to an encouraging and open-minded audience. 

Learn more about Ignite Seattle is and why it is awesome AND to polish the art of storytelling and have some fun in the process!

We'll cover...

  • How to tell better stories at work or in life (and do it fast!),

  • The 6 most common mistakes speakers make and how to avoid them

  • The science behind fears about speaking and how to manage them

  • How to get a talk proposal accepted at events like Ignite Seattle, TEDx, etc.

  • Plus a few volunteers who bring 60 seconds of a talk they have will get an expert critique


This event is not focused on Ignite, and you do not need to have a talk prepared to attend! 

Your coaches will be Ruchika Tulshyan, professional speaker and author of the Diversity Advantage,  and professional speaker and Ignite Seattle emcee Scott Berkun. In addition to giving 20 to 30 lectures and keynotes each year, he wrote the bestselling guide to public speaking, Confessions of a Public Speaker.

(We also have a storytelling workshop on August 19th that is not focused on womxn of color. Please share these workshops with anyone who is interested.)

Please feel free to share this information with anyone who would be a good fit. And reach out with questions!

Thank you so much in advance.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the workshop,

Ruchika & Scott
