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).
