Our mission is to educate, promote and support diverse and inclusive companies and organizations. We aim to achieve this by taking a holistic approach to fostering diversity and inclusion in the workplace. We provide tech and tech-adjacent women an opportunity to network and connect with each other as well as with companies who wish to hire them. At the same time, we support companies in their diversity and inclusion efforts by providing them with the knowledge, skills, and tools to create an inclusive environment, in a safe and welcoming space.
What We Do
Run events for tech and tech-adjacent women in Boston, New York City, San Francisco
- We run networking events, professional development events, happy hours, and speed recruiting events.
- Events average 80-100 women and tend to sell out.
- We are fortunate to be booked out with sponsorships about a year in advance.
- We have incredible sponsors, largely but not exclusively from the tech industry.
- We’ve been running events since 2013, originally as Boston Girl Geek Dinners, but we changed our name and rebranded in Spring 2015.
- The goal for many companies who sponsor our events are to meet incredible women they may want to hire and to align themselves with a women-run and focused organization.
Offer corporate training programs
- We offer diversity and inclusion workshops on various topics around recruiting diverse teams and creating an inclusive culture at work.
- When we talk about diversity, we’re talking about all types of diversity, not just race and gender, but age, ability, class, and more.
- Our diversity and inclusion programs lay a foundation of understanding unconscious bias and offer practical strategies that attendees can implement immediately.
- We have partnered with HumanSide to offer leadership development training to companies, covering topics such as imposter syndrome, strengths-based leadership, growth mindset, and more.
- We offer a six session program called The Vault which allows people to dive deep into issues around diversity, equity, and inclusion at work and beyond. We discuss power, privilege, systemic racism and sexism and how that plays out at work by workshopping real world workplace situations in an intimate and safe environment.
