Kick-Off for Detroit Women's Tech Mentoring Group!

Girl Develop It and Grand Circus are teaming up to bring the women of Detroit the most supportive tech scene in the country! We want to find you a mentor, a mentee, and provide a setting where we can we can all mentor each other. 

Our aim is to provide a series of events where women in tech can meet up, discuss issues, hear from speakers and hopefully find some mentors in the community. Come to our kick-off and provide some feedback on the best way we can help you! 

Please register for this event at Grand Circus's Eventbrite page. Thanks!

      You will..... my car was at the airport and my keys were in Georgia..... not an effective combination. :(

    I was so busy these past few weeks at work that I was unable to attend. I am interested for sure if you organize another one.

    Is there a free parking area and is there a fee for the event? It's my first one. I wont be surprised if i don't get a reply back at such short notice lol

    April 9, 2014

    • Leeann

      Sorry we didn't see this in time, Charlesha! There was no charge for the event -- for events with a charge, we always list that on Meetup, so you'll never be surprised. I'm not as sure about parking, but here's a map (pdf) from Grand Circus: http://www.grandcircu...­

    Great event! So great to meet everyone!

  • Katherine

    So should we bring our computers or is this more of a meet and greet type thing? Is it cool if I bring my programmer boyfriend?

    1 · April 9, 2014

    • Sylvia

      It's more of a meet & greet. Most GDI events welcome both men and women, but this event is more about female mentorship, so the boyfriend may feel a bit out of place.

      April 9, 2014

    • Nicole R.

      We don't have anything planned where you'll need your computer, but it's totally ok to bring yours. And also ok to bring your programmer boyfriend! All are welcome. :-)

  • Karen Z.

    I was so looking forward to this, but it is overlapping something else I had planned. Sometimes I wish I could clone myself!!! I do want to find a mentor regarding Web Design and Dreamweaver/HTML coding. I am doing more design and sometimes need a guiding hand.

    2 · April 9, 2014

    • Nicole R.

      Hi Karen! You are in the right place! And no worries, there will be another event soon. Hope we can see you at the next one! We'll post it here on Meetup once details are confirmed.

  • Denni

    If I'm not there 'til 7 will I miss lot? And will there be another event like this one if I can't make?

    April 8, 2014

    • Sylvia

      You will not miss too much. This event is a kickoff event/meet & greet. Stop by if you can to introduce yourself and meet some of us!

      2 · April 9, 2014

    • Nicole R.

      Hi Denetrua! It's a very casual format, so feel free to stop by whenever you can. Another event is in the works, so there will definitely be another chance to join us then. We'll post it here on Meetup.
