Virtual Meet-up - Building our community of global women who use Shopify

Success ! We just hosted the first⚡️Shopify Women's Network virtual meetup. ⚡️
I am excited to have connected and met 34 like minded women who use Shopify.

A quick summary we had 34 women on the call, located in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, Mexico, USA - A even mix of Merchants, Tech and Services Partners and 8 women from Shopify! 

I found it fascinating that quite a few of our members specialise in providing ecommerce services but are also selling online. I am a merchant as well and have found the experience of selling online invaluable giving me a new perspective of the challenges my clients go through. 

Our panelists Jade MackayJenneviere VillegasGilda VillaseñorEmily Forrest and Jackie Yap did an amazing job, such interesting insights on life, survival during COVID, Shopify Tips and Tricks.

Curb-side Pickup is one of my favourite new enhancements for Shopify and the ecommerce industry. Not only is it enabling people to buy in a safe environment but enables mothers with kids, people with disabilities and elderly to get what they need quick and easily. I believe it will be a feature that will stay beyond COVID and will continue to evolve and improve our shopping experience. 

Chat - I was stoked to see the chat was so interactive, here are a few highlights.
