To celebrate the 2017 International Women's Day theme, #BeBoldForChange, Tech for Good London is joining forces with GeekGirl Meetup UK (GGMUK) for a bonanza of presentations and discussion from some amazing women who are using tech to empower others.

From politics to AI ethics research, diversity remains a crucial issue in 2017. Hear from inspiring female innovators from different sides of the tech for good sector about the projects they’re working on to improve lives and challenge the status quo.

For the second half of the event, GGMUK will be chairing a panel discussion about some of the bold thinking and changes needed to support greater diversity and inclusiveness in tech. It will explore the resources, communities and networks that three panelists have used to drive change, with practical tips for how you can also take action. The full line-up will be announced soon.

There will be two opportunities for community announcements this time, with those that are relevant to the theme halfway through, so please send them through early. It’s a chance to promote projects, events and jobs to the combined Tech for Good and GeekGirls communities.   
 

If you’d like to speak about a tech for good project you’re working on in this area, or if you’re keen to join the panel, then please get in touch
We are charging a £3 fee to help manage attendance numbers and cover the costs of running the Meetup. We don't want this to be a barrier to entry, so if you have any problems with the fee, please do let us know.
