First Women & Minorities in Tech Central Florida Meetup

We are gearing up to have our first meetup. This group will serve as a forum for collaboration, networking, education and to lift each other up and develop mentorship within women and minorities in technology-related fields. Our objectives also include programming to help tech companies or those who hire within the tech field become more inclusive and welcoming to women and minorities.

We will have wine & cheese (sponsored by The Tech Law Firm, a woman-co-founded law firm) and then group introductions. It has been suggested that a good Ice breaker would be to hear short stories about how each person got involved/interested in Tech and maybe what they are doing in the tech space now.

Please spread the word but would like to retain the purity of the group and attract as many tech enthusiasts as possible (as opposed to simply business development people, recruiters, or folks in the periphery, unless there is a tangible contribution to the conversation and not just a place to pick up leads).

    It was great to meet everyone tonight, and hear all of your stories! I'm excited by the ideas Carlos presented, and look forward to see what we'll accomplish. If you are interested in the Orlando Girl Geek Dinners (first dinner this Thursday), you can find more info at the following links:

    Depending on how things pan out. I either won't be able to make it at all or will only make the second half. My class doesn't let out until 7

    Looking forward to meeting other women in technology. I was involved in a group when I lived in Atlanta, but haven't been able to find anything like it in Orlando.

    I don't get out of work until after 6p. Will we still be able to get into the building, or do the doors/elevators lock?
