Winnipeg has its own Girl Geek Dinner organization kicking off in 2010! The “Geek Dinner” idea has been around for a while now, providing an opportunity for geeks to get together over a meal or drinks and talk tech, sci-fi, or whatever geeky topics come up. The Girl Geek Dinner movement is meant to provide a forum for the fairer-geeks to get together and network with other femme-geeks. From the Winnipeg GGD page:

Winnipeg Girl Geek Dinners is an offshoot of the London Girl Geek Dinners, started by Sarah Blow.

The goal of these get-togethers is to make technology accessible and interesting to all age groups and all people, particularly women.

These monthly events are aimed at providing a welcoming atmosphere and a platform for learning in an informal environment.

Trish Rempel of Apptius Computer Solutions is spearheading the group and has set up a blog and a Facebook page for those interested in signing up for event notices.
