Girl Geek Scotland activities in 2017
GGS have had a BUSY year so far. We have held 8 events so far in Mentoring, Cybersecurity and Blockchain; we’ve delivered a report on role models and mentoring for school age girls for Skills Development Scotland including four webinar sessions; and launched our Declaration of Support for Women in Technology with the delightful support of our Subscribers who help us achieve our aims of: Sharing Best Practice, Profiling Women, Supporting the Delivery of Training, and Being Visible Allies. We would therefore like to give thanks again to all our Subscribers for their ongoing support in our activities. They are:
- Create Future
- Royal Bank of Scotland
- The University of Edinburgh: Learning, Teaching and Web Services
- Waracle and Exception
and of course LINC Scotland.
For the remaining part of the bonnie year of 2017, we are focusing on developing our Mentoring Programme further, updating our website, we will be profiling some inspiring women in tech and related sector roles, and do look out for news of the confirmed dates of our Autumn events. But first we have a Summer casual meetup event coming soon – find out more below.
…also huge thanks to all our beloved GGS Volunteers who help make so much happen, and our event attendees and online community members! We do it all for you and each other :-)
