Calling all Geeky women!
We are doing it again – a weekend of fun and connection and nerding out.
January 24-26th at Microsoft in Mountain View.
She’s Geeky is coming to Seattle in April 26-27.
I will be heading up to facilitate and am very excited to finally have this event coming to the North West.
She’s Geeky is a kind of magical event where women geeks of all kinds, gaming geeks, linux geeks, fandom geeks, crafting geeks, beekeeping geeks, drupal geeks, raspberry pi geeks, Arduino geeks, geeks in training, come together and hang out learning from each other.
Maybe we can even get some women from my native Vancouver to come down.
I don’t need to say much. This graphic from the New York Times explains it simply Computer Science and Engineering are getting worse for women and have been for 10 years. These industries are where law and medicine were in the 50′s and 60′s. I share this fact with people from other industries and they look at me funny and say “really” – YES really. They have believed the myth that technology is a a meritocracy and really progressive.
