A one day conference to inspire women in tech

“Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards.”

- Aldous Huxley

Is tech overtaking ethics? Or will it help us create a better future? From AI to Automation, future cities to fake news; it’s time to see how today’s brightest women are shaping our future. GeekGirl Meetup’s 5th annual conference deep dives into how technology is in influencing our lives across communities, work, money and the media.

Join us on December 2nd, and see how tech can have a positive impact in a new world. Because if you don’t like something, fix it.

We would love for you to bring your mini Geeks along and we will have a crèche onsite on the day so you can focus on the fun. Pre-booking the creche is done when you register. This is possible thanks to our inclusivity sponsor Stripe.

Tickets on sale NOW.
