“She’s Geeky is all about amazing and brilliant women who self-identify as geeks!” GITMSP events director Emma Lloyd exclaims.
The ‘Have an idea? Propose a session!‘ unConference nature means each day’s agenda forms organically based on participatory input, feedback and demand.
Catalyzed in 2010 by Jacquie Urick and Liz Tupper, the gathering marks the marks the fourth consecutive year here in Minnesota (previously held in St. Paul). New York, San Francisco, Seattle and Washington DC are among the other US cities hosting similar events. First founded in San Francisco as a networking group for women in tech, the local Girls in Tech chapter has continued to grow under Kate Agnew’s leadership to span a range of ages, occupations and STEM interests.
“We encourage girls who may not even be outside the tech industry, or young women curious about what’s possible to check it out,” Lloyd notes.
Early bird pricing ends today; student discounts, volunteer and sponsorship opportunities for She’s Geeky Minneapolis 2014 are available.
