Speakers will be Malgorzata Sokolowska from Google, giving insights into her journey to becoming a Google engineer, and our very own Annabelle Atchison, talking about how women can use social media to connect and promote their work.
The Geek Girls Carrots network empowers its members through networking, learning and idea sharing. The mission of our community is to promote women in IT, help to educate them and inspire their pursuits. We also want to motivate women to run their own projects and establish new technology related companies.
The foundress of Geek Girls Carrots – Kamila Sidor, co-organized the first Startup Weekend in Poland in May 2011. The event attracted a lot of interest. However, among all the participants, women accounted for a disappointingly small percentage. And that was the moment the idea for Geek Girls Carrots was born. Kamila then met with Magdalena Wójcik – a blogger from www.geekgirls.pl – who was also thinking about meetings for geek girls. On July 7th, 2011, the first meeting of Geek Girls Carrots took place. After a few months Magdalena decided not to organize meetings any longer. But she was soon replaced by five new girls who now, with the local organizers, create the Geek Girls Carrots Board.
