A monthly dinner and networking series for everyone interested in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics). From students just figuring out their interests to those with well-established careers - everyone comes together to meet 'n' greet, learn, network, and have fun! We welcome all aspiring geeks to come hang out with us.
Girl Geek Dinner Events:
Occasionally, we participate in and run events outside of our monthly dinners. These include partnered events with other local groups, educational meetups, and festivals. The goal of these events is education and awareness for STEAM topics.
We know innovation is key, but how do we do innovation? Come shake up your problem-solving skills at a hands-on Design Thinking workshop hosted by McAfee.
Design Thinking isn’t just a trending buzzword. It also isn’t just for designers. It’s an iterative process practiced by great innovators in business, science, art, and engineering, and adopted by world-class brands, like Google and Apple. Facilitated by Margaret Kuo and Barnali Banerji, UX Researchers at McAfee, this workshop is a hands-on opportunity to learn and practice Design Thinking. You’ll leave with new problem-solving skills that are transferable to any work situation. No design, UX, or previous Design Thinking experience is needed—everyone’s welcome!
Barnali Banerji, Manager of User Experience Research, McAfee
