Girls in Tech recently held its second event to bring the women of tech together for an evening of networking and technology discovery.
Athena von Oech, product manager of Ning, introduced the company’s DIY solution for building and hosting dedicated social networks, which is a killer app for creating a community around GIT.
Sarah Meyers was alo in attendance and stepped in for bub.blicio.us tv to interview a few of the attendees, including:
Leah Culver, Pownce
Donna McGahan, Atlassian
Alison Covarrubias of Ladies Who Launch
Created in February of 2007, Girls in Tech was founded by technology marketing and PR mavens Adriana Gascoigne and Laurie Anne Lassek.
GIT was born to further support girls in an industry that, traditionally, has been primarily, well, mostly full of guys.
Girls in Tech is an organization which caters to intelligent, professional, and influential young women working in the technology industry. The organization is a membership driven group, which aims to provide tools and information to empower, encourage innovation, inspiration and involvement among its members, while seeking to collaborate with like-minded men in the industry.
The group offers a variety of resources to women to supplement and further enhance their professional careers in technology. Some of these resources include networking functions, round table discussions, conferences, dinner engagements, and recruitment events.
