It’s been a while since we announced a new Brussels Girl Geek Dinner. The reason is that we still get a lot of requests and ideas, but if, for example, the event would not be 100% free for the geek girls, I’m madame non. But don’t worry, we’ve got a few more cool editions in the pipeline and are just looking for ways to make it “click” for everyone involved. In the meanwhile, here are some ways you can keep track of upcoming Brussels Girl Geek Dinners, and get/keep in touch with each other:

Engineers, IT specialists, machine operators… only few of them are women. Belgium’s largest employers’ organisation and trade association Agoria wants this to change.
Therefore Agoria rolls out the red carpet for all the Technoladies.
Keynot speaker is globally renowned game designer Jane McGonigal (janemcgonigal.com, avantgame.com and twitter.com/avantgame). McGonigal is convinced that individuals who are used to tackling problems in computer games will also be more creative and faster at finding solutions to problems that might occur in real life.
And if you are a man? You are most welcome too! We really need you to support our message… although during this event, all spotlights will be on the ladies!
