Geek Girl Meetup 2016

Idag har jag varit på Geek Girl Meetup Stockholm 2016 – Better TogetHer.


Programmet bjöd på allt från dansuppvisning med gruppen Juck (bara namnet!) till standup på efterfesten på Spotifys kontor.

Några guldkorn från dagen:


Johanna Davidsson, sjuksyrra och äventyrare berättade om sina äventyr med att gå skida över Grönland. I slutet på året satsar hon på att bli första svenska kvinna att ta sig helt solo till Sydpolen. Budskapet till oss som lyssnade var att följa sina drömmar och att sätta upp mål, men att inte glömma att sätta upp hanterbara delmål på vägen.

Caroline Arkensson från Spotify berättade om hur de lyckades skapa ett inkluderande hackaton där både tjejer och killar kände sig välkomna att ansöka och att delta. Hennes bästa tips:

– Gör ingen tävling av det. Det tar bort pressen att prestera och gör det till ett roligare event.
– Låt inte deltagarna presentera i form av pitchar – utan istället i form av demos.
– Ha en tilltalande inbjudan och se över copyn (inkluderande är ledordet).
– Bjud in både manliga och kvinnliga externa talare.
– Låt deltagarna vila och äta bra.

Malin Crona modererade en panel bestående av Sofia Gyllenhammar, Academic Work, Anette Lovas, Expressen, Elise Lilliehöök, One Agency och Nathalie Wassgren, Cygni. Panelen pratade om hur vi får fler kvinnor att jobba inom tech och hur vi hittar och rekryterar de kvinnor som finns. Några saker att tänka på när man utformar jobbannonser:

– Mer fokus på arbetsmiljö, trivsel och vad man som företag kan erbjuda.
– Beskriva hur man jobbar i team.
– Ha med citat från kvinnor inom företaget i kommunikationen.
– Ha i åtanke att kvinnor läser jobbannonser som kravspecifikationer.

Hanna Pettersson och Maria Selting från Tjejer kodar var med och pratade om varför det är så viktigt att tjejer och kvinnor kommer igång att lära sig programmering. År 2020 kommer vi ha brist på 60 000 utvecklare, det är här jobben kommer att finnas.


Funda Denizhan från Valtech berättade om deras initiativ Tech Girls. De anordnar kurser i programmering för tjejer i 11-12 års åldern och målsättningen är att utbilda 500 tjejer, de har kommit ungefär en tredjedels väg.

Totalt sett var det en mycket bra dag och härligt att vara i den kreativa miljön som Tekniska Muséet är. Min kollega Maria Sjögren är en av arrangörerna till eventet, en stor eloge till henne och alla andra som är aktiva inom GGM.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter
    a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting,
    and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt
    for something concerning this.

    Hi every one, here every person is sharing these kinds of experience, therefore it’s pleasant to read this web site, and I used to visit this blog everyday.


    Hello! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give
    a quick shout out and tell you I really enjoy reading your articles.

    Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that deal with
    the same topics? Many thanks!


    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much
    about this, like you wrote the book in it or
    something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but
    other than that, this is wonderful blog. A great read.
    I will certainly be back.


    Amazing blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost
    on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many
    choices out there that I’m totally confused ..
    Any tips? Kudos!

    A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you need to publish more on this subject, it may not be a taboo
    subject but usually people don’t speak about such topics.

    To the next! Cheers!!


    Hi there are using WordPress for your site platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you require any coding
    knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!

    Hello! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me
    of my previous room mate! He always kept talking about this.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if
    it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she
    can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    I’m extremely impressed along with your writing
    abilities as well as with the format to your weblog. Is this
    a paid topic or did you customize it yourself? Either way
    keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to peer a nice blog like this one nowadays..

    After I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there is an easy method you are able to remove me from that service? Cheers!

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog
    that’s both equally educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you have hit
    the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.

    I am very happy that I found this in my hunt for something
    regarding this.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad
    and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My
