Happy 10 Year Anniversary, Bay Area Girl Geek Dinners! Meet Girl Geek X . . .
Careers span decades of life, and this month we reached our first decade of Bay Area Girl Geek Dinners, rebranding as Girl Geek X to celebrate our decade of growth! Many top women have held a variety of roles within a company, tried new ventures, some failed, some kept going — whether at the same company or different ones. Since launching in 2008, our community has grown to over 15K women in tech, and hosted over 150 dinners. In 2017, our events were attended by 2,800 girl geeks! A snapshot of the 2017 attendees:
Girl Geek X is partnering with companies looking to connect with our high-caliber network of women in tech by sponsoring Girl Geek X programs/events with the content girl geeks want (eg. podcasts, videos, webinars, workshops).
What we are excited for in 2018 . . .
MORE GIRL GEEK EVENTS! Girl Geek X Dinners will be held WEEKLY in the SF Bay Area starting in 2018. These are unique learning & networking events where women share leadership in STEM & career expertise in a fast-paced industry. Retention and recruitment of mid-level/senior women in tech is a critical lever for increasing the ratio of female CEOs, executives, engineers and entrepreneurs. We are hosting non-stop, weekly events in 2018.
MORE SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES! Also, Girl Geek X offerings are EXPANDING with sponsorship opportunities for more events, content & partnerships! We are determined to create lasting impact beyond events — amplifying women’s sustained voices with multi-channel distribution (eg. video, podcast, blog posts, social media). Please get in touch with me at email@example.com to learn more.
MORE LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT & LEARNING! We’ll also be ramping up learning & development programs for women to better navigate their unique career journeys. Stay tuned for dates!
