We’re delighted to announce that the 7th Manchester Girl Geek Dinner will take place in the week of International Women’s Day. MadLab in the Northern Quarter will host the first part of the evening starting at 6.15pm, which will see a series of short talks by some of our favourite girl geeks, along with free drinks and nibbles. Maria McDade, a manager at IBM UK, will talk about the company’s activities in engaging women to pursue a career in technology and their recent ‘Women in Technology’ events. Louise Maddison is a research student at Manchester University and won this year’s ‘Junk the Jargon’ competition with her talk ‘How computers can find a cure for cancer’. Hwa Young Jung, one of the founders of MadLab, will give us an insight into her work in setting up and running one of Manchester’s most exciting collaboration spaces for the geek community.
Putting the ‘dinner’ into Girl Geek Dinner, the second part of the evening will take place at Croma restaurant near the town hall, only a short walk (or taxi ride) from MadLab. We have a reservation for a lovely little area in the back, and Croma offer us a choice of 2 courses (main + starter) from the full menu for a fixed price. The restaurant has an extensive menu with plenty of healthy and vegetarian options. We don’t have any talks scheduled for this part, but we’re sure there will be plenty to discuss, chat about and network.
