Event: London Girl Geek Dinners reaches the Big Five!

Have you ever heard of London Girl Geek Dinners?  What started as an organisation comprising of a few women passionate about tech has blossomed into a worldwide network of “dinners” from New Zealand through to Toronto and now the home of that movement – London – is turning 5 years old!

London Girl Geek Dinners is all about inspiring more girls to get into tech, more women to stay in tech and more not-currently-techie women to get involved. We run events in high schools, in businesses and in pubs with inspirational women and men talking about technology in its varied forms. Whether discussing using computerised techniques in creating manga or digital cows, London Girl Geek Dinners appeals to a wide range of people.

OK so what’s happening as we turn 5 ? We are hosting an event at Google HQ on August 4th –  they are our main sponsor. They will be feeding us and giving us goodie bags. Perfect! The wine has been supplied by Dinastia Vivanco and in the goodie bags we have lovely goodies from Green & Blacks, VitaminWater and Juniper Networks. We’ve also got raffle prizes including LGGD sweatshirts and all money from the raffle will go to helping us to gain charitable status. Speakers at the event include Sarah Gordon from Google and Sue Black.

Excited? I’m sure you are.  Want to be a member? I’m sure you do. Just pop over to www.groups.google.com/group/london-girl-geek-dinners/ and sign up for free! Woo hoo!

We’ve grown from just a handful of members to close to 1,000 and have helped members find new jobs, make new friends, discover hidden talents and find the inspiration to start their own businesses. From lifehacking to the work life balance to mobile gaming, London Girl Geek Dinners has covered a lot of ground with their members. Go on you know you want to.
