She’s Geeky 10, Bay Area – January 27-29, 2012

She’s Geeky Bay Area

Computer History Museum, Mountain View

Fri-Sun, January 27-29th

So how does She’s Geeky work?
The “un” part of unconfernece is about this being almost like a conference – amazing people, amazing discussions, great presentations. The big difference is that instead of a pre-planned agenda, the agenda is created live the day of the event by all the geek women who attend. Here is more on how an unconference day works in our FAQ.

Who is it for?
We welcome geeks of all kinds and all levels of geekiness. All the way from formally trained multi-PhD recipients in very technical fields to those who geek out on the weekend making cool gadgets.  If you think you are even a little bit geeky about something, you are most welcome.

Since 2007, we have hosted 10 events around the country inclusive of women of all ages who self-identify as geeks. We attract women from a broad spectrum of technological specialties, professions, industries, levels of expertise, and across generations.  More about She’s Geeky some of our history and what is Core to She’s Geeky.

How do I know it will be good?
It is hard to describe how much fun this event is for women who attend.  To be in a room with 100s who are both women and geeky is really an amazing thing to experience.  We want you to join us!

What will I get out of it?
Women attending She’s Geeky events find inspiration and gain self confidence to pursue or continue on STEM career paths because they are given the opportunity to present their work, often for the first time, discuss critical issues and build peer networks for support.

We collaborate with diverse groups & communities bringing all types of geeks together!
This weekend is where:

  • Women 2.0 & LinuxChix
  • Engineers & neuroscientists
  • Gamers & Makers
  • Firmware & Software Developers
  • Nonprofit Technologists & Open Source coders
  • Multi-PhD & Self Taught Whiz’s

can all be in one place and learn from each other, inspire each other and grow cross disciplinary networks.

How many Women will be there?

This will be our fifth Bay Area She’s Geeky event, and we are aiming for 500-600 women attending the event over the three days at the Computer History Museum.

How can I spread the word?

We have fliers that can be printed up and chopped in 4. ShesGeekyBA4-up1

We have 8.5×11 Full Sheets for posting in offices, etc. BayAreaWholePage1

    We who are putting on Hack the Future recently discovered that She’s Geeky will be taking place the same weekend. We heard that some women bring their daughters to She’s Geeky and we’d like to extend an invitation to any of these girls to join us at Hack the Future between 10 AM and 4 PM at the San Jose Tech Museum.

    This would require some logistical support in terms of getting the girls to the Tech and back with adequate supervision. We have very limited resources so we have to ask that others step up to help put such support together if there is sufficient response.

    Check out our website for more information. I can be reached as lee (at) fonlyinstitute (dot) com .

    Are there any events for the younger kids like my daughter in middle school? I like to get jazzed up about geeky stuff…before other interests kick in.

    This looks awesome! I just got my company Genentech to sponsor up to 30 women from our company to attend. Can you please get in touch with me to coordinate logistics? We will want to pay in bulk and send you a list of names of our participants.
