December sees the second girl geek dinner in Leeds. As someone schooled in a range of inner-city schools, some of them quite hard, I’m not a fan of exclusion. In it’s extreme, it can be fatal.
Creating an event that’s in a universal domain, and then telling people they’re not eligible to attend, because of their sex, is counter productive.
Do women in technology need special treatment?
Which then leads onto the flipside, what would a boy geek dinner look like?
To be honest I don’t care, gender shouldn’t exclude.
If you want to understand gender – go speak to Rikki.
