She+ Geeks Out in Boston July Power Up Workshop sponsored by Addgene
July 22 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
***TICKETS GO ON SALE ONE MONTH BEFORE THIS EVENT***
Please join She+ Geeks Out and Addgene at their beautiful offices in Cambridge for a fun night of learning, networking, eating and drinking! You’ll walk away with more knowledge, new connections, and a full belly!
This event is a woman-focused event that intends an inclusive definition of women. We are welcoming and respectful of women, including trans women and those who are nonbinary, gender non-conforming, and anyone who identifies as a woman in a way that is significant to them. We also welcome allies who are committed to creating environments that are supportive of people who are typically underrepresented in the workplace and beyond.

Not Networking 101- Building Relationships for Success
Networking has gotten a really bad name these days. We all know how it typically goes – I take your card, you take my card and then we don’t call each other. Addgene Executive Director Joanne Kamens will teach you how best to build and maintain authentic relationships that you can carry with you throughout your professional career. This workshop is designed to reintroduce you to how strong professional relationships are necessary for most people to succeed in their careers. She’ll provide practical tools for meeting people and for nurturing new and established connections. We can’t wait to see you there!
Can I get a refund?
Yes, up to one week prior to the event! This helps us better manage our waitlist. We are not able to accommodate last minute cancellations since they are tricky from an administrative standpoint. Request a refund here up to one week prior to the event!
When should I arrive?
Our event starts at 6 PM. Please try not to come by before then– while we love to see your friendly faces, we need that time to set up and get everything ready before things get going. You’ll just be sitting around awkwardly otherwise and that’s no fun for anyone.
What if the event is sold out or ticket sales have ended, can I just show up at the door?
Unfortunately not! If we’re sold out that means we are really sold out! You can certainly add yourself to the waitlist, but if you haven’t received an actual ticket from Eventbrite for this event, we won’t be able to let you in the door. If you’re seeing ticket sales have ended (which is the day before the event), we’ve had to stop selling tickets in order to ensure we’ve got the food ordered properly and nametags set!
Can I transfer my ticket?
We currently do not accept ticket transfers, so if you know you can’t go, please update your ticket information by editing it via the link provided to you in your Eventbrite email.
What do I need to bring to an event?
Other than your smiles? You should bring a form of ID. You won’t need to print out the PDF of the ticket, though– we will look you up when you arrive using all the digital things.
How do I know if I qualify as a geek? What can I expect?
Take a look at our FAQs on the website!
Where can I park?
All of our events are T-accessible, but we understand that sometimes you have to park. If you do, we recommend you use the BestParking website.
Do you have food that’s gluten free/vegetarian/vegan?
We do request that our sponsors include these options, but we are ultimately beholden to what they order. Most of the time these options are provided!
Thanks to Addgene for sponsoring!
