Christina George is the event coordinator for Girls in Tech Mid-Missouri.
Girls in Tech Mid-Missouri is launching in Columbia at 7 p.m. on Monday at the Museao building at 3500 Buttonwood Drive.
Girls in Tech is a social network where women working in technological fields can engage with other like-minded professionals and gain knowledge, insight and friendship. I am happy to be a part of Girls in Tech to help facilitate these connections. Education and empowerment are important to Girls in Tech, and the events offered throughout the year will reflect this dedication.
When I discovered Girls in Tech was planning to launch locally, I was excited to get involved. Meeting other women interested in and working with technology was a key motivator for me to volunteer to help arrange events and promote the organization.
Our launch event features Sarah Hill, a digital storyteller and Google+ hangout host for Veterans United. Sarah will talk about building a deeper connection online through face-to-face communication and how businesses can bring a human aspect to digital communication. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn how to use Google+, vet Hangout guests, brainstorm topics and improve search rankings through YouTube keyword matrix. There will also be time for networking and socializing with appetizers and drinks provided.
