The unConference for women geeks of all kinds to share, connect, network, learn, inspire and have lots of fun.
She’s Geeky Is Emerging Out of Hibernation
We were already thinking about this and then COVID hit and now there are global protests unfolding as part of the Movement for Black Lives.
Women’s voices in STEM fields are needed more than ever as we feel into the present and look towards the future.
Our first convening will be a ½ day event online that uses Open Space Technology to support the community having the conversations it wants and needs to have at this time.
August 8, 2020
9am – 2pm PDT / 12pm – 5pm EDT
Since we last gathered in person we have had the #MeToo Movement, #TimesUp, and the continued momentum for the Movement for Black Lives.
Change is happening and we are seeing the next level of reckoning within the technology industry about its racism and sexism, and there is much more to do.
Our hope is to jumpstart and cultivate some ongoing conversations around critical topics and issues. We wonder what will emerge from this ½ day event.
We are excited to align and expand with you on the day of the gathering and to grow the strength and resilience we need.
Together, we start the day with an opening circle and then three sessions within the open space followed by a closing circle.
Come as you are. Come as a team. If you’re a woman out to build great products, do great science, and/or create new realities, you deserve to spend this day with passionate peers.
Bring your daughters. Bring your mothers. Most important, bring your fears, your questions, your proposals for sessions during the day, and your resolve to put new energy and action into building the future.
Are you a woman? Are you a Geek? She’s Geeky is for you!
We invite women working in Science, Technology, Engineering Arts and Math (STEAM) to gather and connect. Serving Geeky Women since 2007. Learn more.
