Psst! When submitting your programming proposal, be sure that it is:

Mission-aligned
Be sure to check out our mission and values before you submit to make sure that your programming submission aligns with our vision – to celebrate and honor the legacies of under-represented groups in science, technology, comics, arts, literature, game play, and game design. We do this by connecting geeks worldwide and creating an intersectional community that fosters the continued growth of women in geek culture. We’re looking for programming ideas that help us provide a safe space to spark conversations around social justice while encouraging unabashed geekiness.

Timely
We love to receive submissions that are relevant to what is happening today and that discuss timely issues in interesting new ways.

Relevant
When submitting your ideas, be sure to keep your audience in mind. What would GeekGirlCon attendees be interested in and excited about?

If you have any questions about submitting your programming idea, please reach out to us at programming@geekgirlcon.com.

Our GeekGirlCon team is busy creating our best convention yet, and we can’t wait for you to be part of it. Happy panel submission season!
