Girl Geek Dinner Vietnam (Girls Only)
Thursday, December 20, 2012 from 6:45 PM to 9:45 PM (ICT)
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Girl Geek Dinner started in London in 2005. Being only a few women in technical events is tiring: “No, I don’t work in Marketing”, “Yes, I studied computer science”. You constantly need to prove yourself. Girl Geek Dinners offer a space free of this burden where women in IT can express and share their passion. The community has grown worldwide thanks to amazing sponsors who provided great venues and fantastic support:
- Same idea since 2005
- Spread over 25 countries
- With 30,000 people - over linkedin, twitter, facebook
- Vietnam is part of the community since June 2012
You may not know that women were actually the first computer programmers (1), but you’ve surely experienced the benefits of gender diversity in teams: better decision making, increased creativity, and enhanced, innovative performances (2). Especially with Agile management becoming mainstream, there is a growing demand for IT workers with leadership, interpersonal, and communication skills. At Girl Geek Dinner, we believe that women in Vietnam can and should take up this space. We want to inspire and give them the confidence to do so.
The events are non-profit and free. There is a dinner, presentations, and time for discussion.
The event will be hosted by Officience, one of our sponsors.
In this edition, we'll have 2 topics (more details soon):
- Work and Life balance
- Introduction to SEO
