Girl Geek Dinners is the result of one geek in the UK, tired of being the only girl & having to constantly prove herself, who decided to go find more of her kind and invite them to dinner. This is the Bay Area Chapter.
Angie Chang started the first Bay Area Girl Geek Dinner, which was hosted by Google in January 2008. The 400 girl geeks were invited to enjoy sushi, an open bar, Google schwag, great conversation and even better networking at Charlie’s cafe on the Google Mountain View campus. Events sponsored by Facebook and Yahoo soon followed. Startups like LOLapps and Polyvore followed suit. Today, Bay Area Girl Geek Dinners have been hosted by a diverse set of companies including Genentech, Palantir, Microsoft, Citrix Online, Electronic Arts…
The ask is simple — buy dinner and drinks for girl geeks, and give away a piece of co-branded schwag (to extend the lifetime of the event). Invite female speakers in areas of their expertise, from well-known names to the up-and-coming. Encourage networking amongst the girl geeks and recruiting by the sponsoring company. Everyone wins.

- Key DifferentiatorThis Chapter of Girl Geek Dinners aims to bring geeky girls together. That’s where you come in! Event Sponsors Event sponsors provide venue, dinner/heavy appetizers, and drinks for the attendees. Co-branded schwag and door prizes can also be provided. Generally, the company or organization sponsoring the event organizes speakers to give lightning talks, and has demo booths to showcase their products. Being an event sponsor is a great way to generate PR in the community and also have a pool of talented, geek/creative/tech women to potentially recruit from. Schwag/Door Prize Sponsors Are you interested in providing schwag to be given away as prizes during one of our events? Tshirts, books, subscriptions, software, gadgets, you name it! Drop us a line and see how you can get involved. Other Sponsors Do you have another idea for sponsoring a Bay Area GGD event? If it’ll benefit the women who make up our community, we’d love to hear about it!
