LET'S CHANGE THE RATIO

Only 12% of engineers are women but we know women can change the ratio.

The current internet was primarily built by men, but our Girl Geek community is driven to bring more women and girls into STEM careers. Because we think it’s great 😀

Here's a question...

WHAT WOULD THE INTERNET LOOK LIKE IF THERE WERE MORE WOMEN BUILDING IT?

We invite Girl Geeks to learn and teach through our workshops, intensive weekends, online courses, hackathons, game jams, meetups and makerfests.
Our programs increase the number of women with technology skills. Girl Geek Academy is designed by Girl Geeks for women who want to learn more about technology and aspire to a Girl Geek future.

THE GIRL GEEK MANIFESTO

Boldly going where no girl geeks have gone before. There are things to learn, mistakes to make and fun to be had. Where we go, we go together. We support-forward: we are there for each other before we even know we need help.

We sometimes say no: We aren’t about being unhealthy, burnt out and undervalued. This means we say no to pizza at meetups, crazy long hours for hackathons and not being paid to teach. We celebrate our achievements because they are achievements – not just because they are the achievements of women.

Emojis welcome 😀
