How the Reading Club works

Every 2 months, we gather to discuss books & articles about conversational AI, voice technology, and women and minority genders empowerment.

Reading Club members receive an email with 4 books and/or articles to choose from.

Pick any from the list to read! All will be discussed in the meeting.
Meaning, you’ll also be able to learn from what others have read! 🤗

Can’t attend the meeting? You can still read along and contribute your opinion & questions in the #bookclub Slack. We’ll make sure to discuss your impressions in the meeting, which you’ll be able to take part in by watching the recording. 🔁

Check the Global Events Calendar, your email and the pinned messages at #bookclub channel on WiV Slack for the date of the next meeting. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
