Organizer

Bay Area Girl Geek Dinners

Google hosted the first Bay Area Girl Geek Dinner in January 2008, inviting 400 girl geeks to enjoy sushi, an open bar, Google schwag, great conversation and even better networking at Charlie’s cafe on the Google Mountain View campus. Events sponsored by Facebook and Yahoo! soon followed. Startups like LOLapps and Polyvore followed suit.

Today, Bay Area Girl Geek Dinners have been hosted by a diverse set of companies including Genentech, Palantir, Microsoft, Citrix Online, Electronic Arts…

The ask is simple — buy dinner and drinks for girl geeks, and give away a piece of co-branded schwag (to extend the lifetime of the event). Invite female speakers in areas of their expertise, from well-known names to the up-and-coming. Encourage networking amongst the girl geeks and recruiting by the sponsoring company. Everyone wins.
