Girls in Tech Omaha is hosting Meet and Mingle, a free event for women working in and interested in technology to connect, network and get to know other women in the Omaha area tech scene, on Monday, Sept. 14 from 6 to 8 p.m. at The 1020 (www.1020omaha.com – 5013 Underwood Ave.).
“One thing that’s been missing in the Omaha tech scene is opportunities for women in technology to connect,” said Kt McBratney, Girls in Tech Omaha managing director. “Our previous events and feedback from members have shown us that Omaha’s women in technology want and need to build a community and learn more about their peers.”
Created in 2007, Girls in Tech was born out of a need to provide a place for women to cultivate ideas around their careers and business concepts involving technology. Girls in Tech aims to offer a variety of resources and tools for women to supplement and further enhance their professional careers and aspirations in technology. These resources include educational workshops and lectures, networking functions, round table discussions, conferences, social engagements and recruitment events. Girls in Tech Omaha launched in May of this year.
