She Geeks Out builds dynamic communities through events, networking and education. Our mission is to create an inclusive culture that values and upholds diversity, particularly gender diversity. We connect like-minded, passionate individuals from all walks of life. We provide the guidance necessary to help develop talents and skills in order to enact organizational transformations. She Geeks Out supports a welcoming network, enables mentorship, supports girls and advances women, and encourages every woman to proudly fly their geek flag.
We believe in the importance of giving back and have chosen to donate to local charities that support underserved girls in STEM. We know how critical education and encouragement is in these fields, which tend to be both well paying and not represented by women in large numbers. Thank you for coming to our events. They help us support these great nonprofits!
How do I know if I qualify as a geek?
Don’t worry about qualifying yourself. If you think you are a geek, you probably are! Everyone has something that they geek out about. Come on out to an event and see for yourself. We do this to meet new people and learn from each other.
A geek, according to the Merriam Webster Dictionary, is “a person who is very interested in and knows a lot about a particular field or activity.”
We love this word because it emphasizes learning, curiosity and passion. And what we’ve found since we began this group is that we attract geeks in the truest sense of the word. What’s more, because we are a women-only group, we are able to provide a safe space. We can be honest, silly, make mistakes, be right, educate others and learn from others because we are supported by others who understand.
