She+ Geeks Out January Geek Out: Civic Engagement for Introverts

January 28 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$10

It’s 2020, people, let’s do this! But, you know, not necessarily in the knocking-on-doors or calling-people kind of way. Have you ever wanted to get more involved in shaping your community’s, your country’s, your world’s future, but felt unsure how to do it, or overwhelmed by options? Great, us too! Good news, you’ll get to meet three fabulous women+ who will share their experiences getting involved in a variety of ways and point you in the right direction if you’re interested in doing it yourself!

  • Sam Hammar, Co-Founder, Run En Masse
  • Kimberly Lucas, Open Data Manager, Citywide Analytics Team, Dept of Innovation & Technology, City of Boston
  • Third speaker TBA!

This event is a woman-focused event that intends an inclusive definition of women. We are welcoming and respectful of women, including trans women and those who are nonbinary, gender non- conforming,and anyone who identifies as a woman in a way that is significant to them. We also welcome allies who are committed to creating environments that are supportive of people who are typically underrepresented in the workplace and beyond.

Please make sure to read our code of conduct before coming to our event!

FAQs

Can I get a refund?
Yes, up to one week prior to the event! This helps us better manage our waitlist. We are not able to accommodate last minute cancellations since they are tricky from an administrative standpoint. Request a refund here up to one week prior to the event!

When should I arrive?
Our event starts at 6 PM. Please try not to come by before then– while we love to see your friendly faces, we need that time to set up and get everything ready before things get going. You’ll just be sitting around awkwardly otherwise and that’s no fun for anyone.

What if the event is sold out or ticket sales have ended, can I just show up at the door?
Unfortunately not! If we’re sold out that means we are really sold out! You can certainly add yourself to the waitlist, but if you haven’t received an actual ticket from Eventbrite for this event, we won’t be able to let you in the door. If you’re seeing ticket sales have ended (which is the day before the event), we’ve had to stop selling tickets in order to ensure we’ve got the food ordered properly and nametags set!

Can I transfer my ticket?
We currently do not accept ticket transfers, so if you know you can’t go, please update your ticket information by editing it via the link provided to you in your Eventbrite email.

What do I need to bring to an event?
Other than your smiles? You should bring a form of ID. You won’t need to print out the PDF of the ticket, though– we will look you up when you arrive using all the digital things.

How do I know if I qualify as a geek? What can I expect?
Take a look at our FAQs on the website!

Where can I park?
All of our events are T-accessible, but we understand that sometimes you have to park. If you do, we recommend you use the BestParking website.

Do you have food that’s gluten free/vegetarian/vegan?
We do request that our sponsors include these options, but we are ultimately beholden to what they order. Most of the time these options are provided!

Thank you ActBlue for sponsoring!
