She’s Geeky – Bay Area 2014, our largest event of the year!
Each day begins with group/interactive agenda setting. Feel free to choose which day(s) you'll come based on your schedule. Choose how many days you attend based on how much community exposure and opportunity you want and need. Every day offers new topics to discover!

We are actively seeking sponsors! Please see this page to learn more about levels. Huge thanks to Microsoft for stepping up as our branding and site sponsor this year!
About She's Geeky
Without places to re-energize and networks that support them, women who have done the hard work of developing their skills to work in STEM may drop out after just a few years in their field. We want to improve the situation of women in STEM fields, increase retention rates, and create a place for women to discuss the topics that are meaningful to them. Inspiring each other, creating vital networks, and sharing skills are at the core of our events.
Women attending She’s Geeky events find the inspiration necessary to continue on STEM career paths because they are given the opportunity to present their work, discuss critical issues and build peer networks for support.
We work with and promote existing activities and organizations in regions around the country. She’s Geeky is a neutral event that supports connection between different geeky cultures by using a format where the agenda is created live at the event by the women in attendance.
Since the first successful event in 2007, we have hosted 14 events around the country inclusive of women of all ages who self-identify as geeks. We attract women from a broad spectrum of technological specialties, professions, industries, levels of expertise, and across generations.
This will be our 7th Bay Area She’s Geeky event and we are aiming for 300 women attending the event over the three days at the Microsoft Silicon Valley Campus.
What is an unConference?
Beginning at 9 AM each day we start with a blank wall and in less than an hour, with facilitator guidance, attendees create a full day, multi-track conference agenda that is relevant and inspiring to everyone who attends. All are welcome to put forward presentations or propose conversations.
If this is an unConference - why does it cost money?
We operate She's Geeky as a not-for-profit event of PlanetWorks and raise enough funds to cover the expenses of producing a quality event. It takes a combination of sponsorships and ticket sales to cover the costs associated with the event. To understand more about this please see our post about money and unconferences.
