Our mission is to empower women+ in the workplace and educate, promote, and support diverse and inclusive companies and organizations. We aim to achieve this by taking a holistic approach. We provide tech and tech-adjacent women+ and their allies an opportunity to network and connect with each other as well as with companies who wish to hire them. At the same time, we support companies in their diversity and inclusion efforts by providing them with the knowledge, skills, and tools to create an inclusive environment, in a safe and welcoming space.
What We Do
We value open-mindedness, kindness, empathy, transparency, positivity, giving back, and paying it forward. We believe that helping companies create an inclusive culture starts with us first. We are a certified B Corp and encourage you to learn more about what that is.
We believe in the importance of giving back and have chosen to donate to local charities that support underserved girls in STEM. We know how critical education and encouragement is in these fields, which tend to be both well paying and not represented by women+ in large numbers. Thank you for coming to our events. They help us support these great nonprofits!
What is a geek?
A geek, according to the Merriam Webster Dictionary, is “a person who is very interested in and knows a lot about a particular field or activity.”
We love this word because it emphasizes learning, curiosity and passion. And what we’ve found since we began this group is that we attract geeks in the truest sense of the word. We can be honest, silly, make mistakes, explore, learn, and educate others because we are supported by a community that understands.
