(Denver) She++ Documentary Screening

Two of our members - Emily Grossman and Cynthia Traxler - have put together an exciting event for this month: the screening of the documentary She++

This documentary is only being shown where generous folks have volunteered to put together a screening (thank you, Emily & Cynthia!).  It explores the drop in female engineers, research and insight into this trend, and inspiring stories from fem-gineers in Silicon Valley.  See the synopsis below, or watch the trailer at:  http://sheplusplus.stanford.edu/film/

We hope to see you there!



Snacks: Popcorn will be provided, but food can also be purchased from the Gather café (inside Galvanize) until 7pm. The Gather bar also will be serving beers, wine, and other beverages until 9pm.

Between 2000 and 2009, there was a 79 percent drop in the number of first-year undergraduate women considering computer science, even as products such as Facebook, Twitter, Angry Birds, etc. began making technology 'cool' again. And so, we have been told, time and time again, we need more women in technology. But we're not entirely convinced by the op-eds and panel discussions. Is there really a difference? The greatest technology companies of our time -- Apple, Google, Facebook -- have been successfully founded and run by men. And they seem to be doing a pretty good job.

she++: The Documentary (12 min: TV-14 DL) energetically proclaims 'Hello, World' after following smart, creative, and trailblazing technologists hard at work in hi-tech. This short documentary collects research and inspirational pieces of Silicon Valley's unsung heroes to galvanize us to explore our potential as 'femgineers'. Written and directed by recent Stanford University good girls gone geek, Ayna Agarwal and Ellora Israni, she++: The Documentary encourages the future CEOs, the innovative engineers, the techies and the fuzzies, the sisters, cousins, and daughters, to break away from the stereotype into a revolutionary field. As technology is becoming increasingly ubiquitous, all demographics must harness new ideas to transform and empower technology. Think of what more 'femgineers' could do.

    Does anyone drive through downtown, perhaps near the ballpark on the way home? I don't have my wheels tonight (I have a ride there lined up, but not one home).

    I'm not sure if I'll make it this evening ... I'll have to be a "maybe"

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.
