She's Geeky: A Women's Tech (un) Conference
FairerScience friend David Mortman sent this on and it sounds like a lot of fun
The She's Geeky (un)Conference will provide an agenda-free and friendly environment for women who not only care about building technology that is useful for people, but who also want to encourage more women to get involved.
It is designed to provide women who self-identify as geeky and who are engaged in various technology-focused disciplines with a gathering space in which they can exchange skills and discuss ideas and form community across and within disciplines.
Our goal is to create an open space forum for women in tech to come together to:
• Exchange skills and learning from women from diverse fields of technology.
• Discuss topics about women and technology.
• Connect the diverse range of women in technology, computing, entrepreneurship, funding, hardware, open source, nonprofit and any other technical geeky field.
This is an unconference so it will have an agenda created by the people who attend.
It's on October 22 and 23rd at the Computer History Museum, Mountain View, CA.
PS they are particularly interested in having Women in Technology groups participate and ask you to contact email@example.com for more information.
