We are very excited to announce the 2nd Los Angeles Girl Geek Dinner, hosted by Southern California public radio station KPCC in Pasadena! This event will feature a panel discussion focusing on the impact of technology on media and career, leadership, and the current state of girls in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). 

Panelists include:

- 

Stacey Ferreira, Entrepreneur, Founder of mySocialCloud.

Jan Sanders, Director of Libraries and Information Services for the City of Pasadena.
- 

Talulah Riley, Actress/Writer and Ambassador of The Prince’s Trust.
- 

Alex Schaffert, Director of Digital Media for KPCC, Southern California Public Radio.



Drawing on their work and personal experiences, the panelists will explore questions of what is currently being done to promote girls and women in STEM careers and leadership positions, how the media has portrayed girls and women, and what the future looks like. The discussion will be moderated by Angie Chang, Director of Growth at Hackbright Academy and founder of the Girl Geek Dinners’ Bay Area chapter. 

Skylar Jackson, Communication & Program Director, Entertainment Industries Council will deliver a special message via Skype, and there will be a closing keynote by Andy Wilson, Founder of Rexter and Innovate Pasadena.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
