Des Femmes newsletter - Issue #23

Hello and welcome to the Des Femmes newsletter! 👋

We’re focused on launching our second print issue of Des Femmes Magazine (on shelves in Q4 2022!) and the 2022 mentorship program, which is off to a great start! This article by participant Haley Berkoe offers great advice for anyone interested in working in the bitcoin economy. 
We ended up having way more qualified applicants for the program than we expected, so we’re currently working to expand the mentorship program to accommodate a wider diversity of participants.
We know that the program already has more than three times the percentage of female participants as the last Chaincode Labs program. There’s still room to grow, yet it’s a great start. The kinds of feedback we’re getting so far includes: 
“I’m really happy to be a part of the program. Met with my mentee today. She’s lovely!” 🤗
“ I am really glad I found out about this mentorship program. Just exactly what I need right now at this stage of my career.”  🤓
Participants in the virtual program are joining from France, India, Italy, Nigeria, Canada, Portugal, the Netherlands, Greece, the USA, and Israel, just to name a few countries represented. To learn more about what we’ve been up to, be sure to check out our Notion or buy an official membership. Here are three reasons to join today!
Plus, if want to hire bitcoin-savvy developers!, email leigh@desfemmesmagazine.com to learn about our recruiting services.
We can’t wait to share the magazine with all of you! It includes a wide range of women entrepreneurs using cypherpunk tools around the world. Just like last year, our production process included several women being paid directly with bitcoin, plus dozens of amazing volunteer contributors from the community.
When it comes to publishing, thousands of readers engaged with our content in this first year, including dozens of holiday collection NFT holders, from both last winter and Mother’s Day. We think you’ll love our next magazine!
Highlights of the month:
🔥 Two Des Femmes keyholders, who met through our community, are starting a business together! Congrats, Autumn and Danielle! 🥳
🔥 Our 2022 mentorship program sponsor, Superlunar, launched new grants for people working on open source projects to apply for funding!
We love helping y’all secure the bag, so be sure to check it out. 💰
🔥 NFT holders who bought pieces from our Power of Motherhood collection are getting mint access to artist Leah Sam’s Power Pass membership with live events and even more educational resources. 🎨
🔥 Our bitcoin keyholders made their first multisig transaction to pay a designer for a BTCPay server guide for the magazine! 🎉
🔥 Contributing DAO program manager Rachel Hyman  setup BTCPay server for our website! 🎉 Next we are testing it and add tips for using it. Wish us luck! 🤞
Community spotlight:
We’re also excited to highlight mentorship program co-manager Marina Spindler, who is joining our operations team for the rest of the year to help us expand the curriculum of the mentorship program to accommodate the diversity of qualified students. 
We’ll share more details on our project evolution soon. Until then, be sure to follow us on Twitter or Instagram via @desfemmesmag. Not a member yet? Buy an official membership here.
