Geek Girls Unite!

Time to strut those heels, girls! GDG Philippines is happy to announce its first ever Geek Girl Meetup!

The event will be a great venue to bring together women who are passionate about technology in a traditionally male-dominated field. This is also a part of Google and the Google Developer Group's commitment to promote diversity and encourage women to excel in technology.

We will be joined by strong women in tech, including lady Googlers Merci Niebres, Janet Yoon, and Aileen Apolo, as well as Minette Navarette, President of Kickstart Ventures.

Please join us on Tea Party Tuesday, October 16, 2012 at the Globe Telecom Showroom, Valero Telepark, Valero Street, Salcedo Village in Makati City. The event starts at 6:00 pm.  To register, please fill out the form at

Big hugs go out to GlobeLabs, Kickstart, and QSR for making this event possible!

Pinay geek girls rock! See you at the meetup!
