GeekGirlCon 2017 @ The Conference Center
Sep 30 @ 10:00 am – Oct 1 @ 8:00 pm
GeekGirlCon 2017 @ The Conference Center | Seattle | Washington | United States

GeekGirlCon is an organization that works to empower women and girls to pursue their passions—whether they love science and technology, comics, literature, gaming, or anything else! Everybody is a geek at heart, in one way or another. Our mission is to ensure all these geeks are supported, welcomed, and encouraged to pursue what they love.

GeekGirlCon’s largest event is a two-day convention that gives female geeks and their supporters the opportunity to build a community, share facts and fandom, and learn how they can help promote the role of women and other underrepresented groups in geek culture. We also bring people together through social media and events in the Greater Seattle area. We have a lot of fun doing this, although we aren’t afraid to also tackle some serious topics related to gender equality.

We invite anybody who wants to see more women succeed in geek-related fields to join GeekGirlCon.
