Last night I went along as a +1 to Oxford Girl geek dinners, an event organised in order to encourage more women to get involved in technology.
It’s an informal gathering with some presentations and lots of opportunity for networking. Men are permitted, but only if accompanied by a girl geek.
From the central website:
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 being assumed to be marketing, 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.
Good fun and both myself and Kelly thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, more please!
