Our third meetup will be hosted by Seccl Technology in their new office space. So come in and enjoy the start-up environment – some chairs will be provided.

Our speakers for today are:

Kerry the co-founder of tinygiant.io

who will explore both the light and dark side of A.I. Find out how artificial intelligence is shaping the creative industries, uncover the challenges of gender bias in algorithms – and discover why it’s so important for women to participate in the conversation.

Catherine Hodges, a local business owner of two successful hair salons

who is going to talk to us about the challenges of running your own business. Discover if there is such thing as work-life-balance and what Cat has figured out on her journey.

BGGD Reloaded #2 – Stronger and better (17th October 2018, 6pm)

Our second meetup will also be hosted by Edit in their lovely Editorium. And here are the exciting topics we will discuss tonight…

1. Introducing: Amy Barrett and I’m a Scientist..

Gallomanor is a very local company here in Bath that provides creative audience-led communication solutions and events. They have a strong, but not exclusive focus on education and reaching school students, particularly in science, engineering, and e-democracy. https://imascientist.org.uk/

2. Featuring: Jane Ginnever on flexible working and addressing conflict situations at work

Jane Ginnever is a Founding Director of SHIFT, a company who helps their clients to clearly define their culture, and create a way of working within their business that is unique to their team and their values and will sustainably deliver the results they’re trying to achieve. She is going to talk to us about flexible working and how these topics as well as other issues can be addressed in any work place situation. She has recently written articles on LinkedIn addressing these challenges:

3 Reasons you should encourage conflict your business and Flexibility is not a female issue

Those are worth a read, not just in preparation for our session on Wednesday 🙂

Edit will kindly provide some snacks and drinks and we will be able to have lively conversations while enjoying the great view from their office. Please arrive around 5.45pm, since a receptionist needs to let you in and we are aiming to start at 6pm.

We are looking forward to seeing you there!

From Pies to Pizzas! Bath Girl Geek Dinner 2018 #2

Bath Girl Geek Dinners is back and we are enticing our members in for an informal pizza and meetup before BathCamp (which we’re sneaking into after 6.30)  on the 10th May.

We will introduce ourselves, explain the aim of the group and give you all an overview of the support networks in the region for women in Bath working in the Tech Field.

Marianne Wise and Franziska Zuch have brilliantly agreed to take on the task of getting the Bath GGD on its feet which is great.

As we are only booked for the first hour we will concentrate on who’s doing what in the Bath area around the women in Tech
