Is your inner girl geek dying to get out, but you don’t know where to send her? Start a GirlGeek Tech Meet-Up! AkiraChix founder, Linet Kwomboka, will lead this workshop on how to start a regular meet-up just for women, and eventually turn it into a permanent technology space. This workshop will give attendees a roadmap and the resources needed to start the process of creating meet-ups of their own, while also introducing everyone to each other and forming a network of GirlGeeks that can ignite the power of women in tech.
