About She's Geeky:

She’s Geeky convenes to inspire women technologists for the future and advance systemic change in tech culture, providing a space to create enduring communities that foster collaboration and innovation among women professionals working in Science Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

In early 2007 a group of women working in the high-tech sector in the San Francisco Bay Area recognized a need for a gathering space where women who self-identify as geeky could meet in person to support, educate, and share experiences with each other. Although many organizations already existed for women in different areas of technology and as well to encourage girls to pursue careers in such fields, there was no commons area that:

  • brought all  interested individuals and organizations together;
  • supported peer-to-peer learning exchange;     
  • built connections and established relationships across diverse communities and disciplines to support women technologists; and
  • specifically attended to retaining women in technology fields through community

Rather than creating another niche women-in-tech organization, we decided to work with and promote existing activists and organizations, inviting them all to meet at an interactive event called an unConference.

What is an unConference?

Beginning at 9 AM each day, we start with a blank wall and, in less than an hour, with a facilitator guiding the process attendees create a full day, multi-track conference agenda that is relevant and inspiring to everyone there.  All are welcome to put forward presentations or propose conversations.As women register we will be posting proposed topics on our wiki.

If this is an unConference - why does it cost money?

We operate She's Geeky as a not for profit event and raise enough funds to cover the expenses of producing a quality event.  About half (1/2) the cost of putting it on  is covered by ticket sales and half (1/2) from sponsors. Our no-show rate is only 10% vis up to 60% for free camps. We can't provide food economically and un-wastefully if we don't create a contract with attendees to attend. Your payment covers food and a portion of the related venue and event expenses and in exchange we provide a well organized, adequately staffed, engaging event at a reasonable price that is considerably less than regular conferences.  To understand more about this please see our post about money and unconferences.
