Chic Geek is a Calgary-based non-profit building a welcoming, supportive community for women at the intersection of technology and entrepreneurship.
We want to see more women as makers, builders and creators, leveraging technology to change the world!
We achieve that through our EVENTS.
Founded in January 2013, we’re building a supportive network for women that acts as a launchpad into the broader, exciting world of startups and technologies. One of our first steps was to partner with Ladies Learning Code so we could bring basic coding workshops to Calgary.
These workshops are teasers, to encourage women to explore and try their hand at new technologies. In addition to coding workshops, we host speaker and networking events, socials, casual learning sessions and leadership opportunities for women in our network.
If you envision a world with strong female role-models in technology, we’re starting to build them here and now. Take a stand with us, discover your nerdy side and challenge the stigma around being a geek.
AND MOST OF ALL...
we are friendly, approachable, and go out of our way to make others feel welcome.
