WHAT’S HAPPENING?

A two-part event, this month’s Geek Girl dinner will take place at the Microsoft headquarters in North Ryde.

Firstly, we’ll be working on the Women Build program using Lego Bricks to start discussions around solutions to a problem facing women in the technology industry. Then we’ll be heading upstairs for the entertainment and networking component of the evening, and get hands on with the Xbox 360 games system. Finger food and drinks will be provided.

Some of the female stars of the IT industry will be coming along to the event, which will be MC’d by the lovely Ashley Jenkins, Fragdoll extraordinaire, site manager for Xbox.com and programmer of the Xbox LIVE interface.

Hi Mana,
what's the best email to send my details?

If you've got too many people already, don't worry about it.

Thanks
