Founded in Johannesburg in November 2011 by Leigh-Ann Fowle, the dinners are run bi-monthly, with exciting guest speakers and opportunity for Girl Geeks to connect, support and empower each other.
About Girl Geek Dinners:
The Girl Geek Dinners were founded on the 16th August 2005 as a result of one girl geek who got annoyed and frustrated about being one of the only females attending technical events. She was tired of constantly having to prove herself and decided that she just wanted a change and to be treated just the same as any other geek out there, gender and age aside. After all to be geeky is to be intelligent, have passion for a subject and to know that subject in depth. It’s not at all about being better than others, gender, race, religion or anything else. Those things just detract from the real fun stuff, the technology, the innovation and the spreading of new ideas.
