Free
Come join us for a fun evening of networking with kind humans!
Please join us for a special night of networking and learning with the lov

Please join us for a special night of networking and learning with the lovely folx at DraftKings !

You’ll have an opportunity to discuss these topics:

Ellen Kim: Life of an Engineer at DraftKings

Bella Hayes: Self Advocacy & Negotiation

Amanda Westphal: Tips & Tricks on Virtual Interviews

Jason Jones: Personal Branding on LinkedIn

How is this going to work?

This will NOT be a Zoom meeting (yay!)… you’ll be able to virtually network in small groups of up to six people per table. You get to choose where you ‘sit’ and there will be lots of pre-created topics that will be work and fun-related (furbaby and humanbaby pictures, book ideas, TV show obsessions, all welcome here).

You’ll get all the info on how to access the platform through Eventbrite and below is a screenshot of what you can expect it to look like when you’re in and virtually talking with people!

Thanks to DraftKings for sponsoring!

This event is a women and other marginalized genders-focused event that intends an inclusive definition of women and other marginalized genders. We are welcoming and respectful of women and other marginalized genders, including trans women and other marginalized genders and those who are nonbinary, gender non-conforming, and anyone who identifies as a women and other marginalized genders 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.

Please make sure to read our code of conduct before coming to our event!

“I absolutely loved the tables! IRL events I have horrible social anxiety so it’s super hard for me to dive into a conversation by walking up to a group. Having these set topics made me feel instantly welcomed and able to really get into the topics with everyone. I wish more events were run this way.”

“For being a virtual event, it was surprisingly easy to engage and feel connected to people. I loved the UI with the tables and table topics, and the speaker part worked very well too.”

“Wonderful content and great conversations. This was my first event and I found it very valuable. I also loved the virtual interface, it’s very user-friendly.”

“The speeches were intriguing and the online forum was incredible! The virtual chairs and tables where attendees could mingle, offered a perfect alternative to physical meetups during our time of social distancing.”

Land Acknowledgement

She+ Geeks Out was originally founded on land that is the traditional territory of the Massachusett and Pawtucket tribes, and which is still home to descendants of these peoples. At this point in time, the SGO team is fully remote, and we are located across the United States. Land acknowledgements are a way for us to reflect upon the duality of our work— while we work within our team, our community, and our client organizations to promote greater inclusivity and abolish inequities, we ourselves still perpetuate and contribute to various forms of historical and present oppression. We are now operating in a virtual space, but we can still honor and name the physical spaces we all inhabit. We encourage you to learn more about the lands you are currently on and reflect on your own place in this work.
