Goodbye Sydney Geek Girls

Dear Sydney Geek Girls,

I'm leaving Sydney for the sweltering heat of Darwin and the company of my wonderful family.

You are in good hands with Catherine Eibner, Kate Carruthers, Jodie Miners and many others.

Please don't let the group fade away. There are so many fabulous geek girls in Sydney who have shown each other so much support for the last two years. Keep it up.

You can always email, txt or tweet me for a chat, support or anything else I can help you with.

Love, hugs and geeky kisses,

Be a 3 minute Mentor and Mentee - North Ryde Social Event with Girl Geeks and FITT

We have a fantastic local Female IT community with thanks to each & everyone of you who is involved.

Have you ever wanted to do more? Perhaps give something back to the Female IT community?

Well, this is going to be your chance!

Sydney Girl Geek Dinners are joining forces with Females In Technology and Telecommunications (FITT) for its first networking event that will provide a fun and interactive speed mentoring game, with the overall goal of sharing ways you can get involved in mentoring & give or receive support from your peers & our amazing role models we are lucky enough to have.

The aim is to provide an interactive networking to share and discuss work related experiences that could include anything like the following:

-If only I knew 5 years ago what I know now
-What works for me in this situation
-I know I have a strong skill set here, but could use help here
-What type of course could help me progress in this area
-I just want to make sure I’m heading in the right direction

So bring your questions as well as your answers as this is one opportunity to make great introductions, learn from your peers and have fun.

This event is kindly sponsored by Microsoft

Light lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Pencil in the date:

Thursday, October 29th

Where shall we meet?

I'm back at work and ready to start organising "stuff" again.

I need a suggestion for a venue that would suit an informal gathering
of Sydney geek girls. It needs to have a variety of food and lots of
seating. Outside is fine if there are heaters. Preferably in the CBD
or surrounding suburbs.

It will be in a couple of weeks so stay tuned for details.

Respond to the Google group or comment on this blog if you have suggestions.
