Nerdy Girls OKC is the founding chapter of Nerdy Girls Association with sister chapters in Tulsa, Nashville, and Thousand Oaks, California.
The mission of the Nerdy Girls Association is to create intelligent communities to empower women. Members are encouraged to participate in and become a part of the culture around them through education, arts, and volunteerism. Our community events aim to support local business and to initiate involvement between members and their neighborhood leaders.
Nerdy Girls members are a network of intelligent women from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds. Members share skills and knowledge across the group in order to educate and to be educated. Nerdy Girls use these collective skills to strengthen our communities.
We support the visibility of women in professional fields, ranging from the arts and academia to science and mathematics, and the encouragement of young women to move into these fields. We encourage women to identify as nerdy, intelligent, creative, techie, artistic, educated, and more.
