Support Geeky Women and Girls Celebrating Who They Are and What They Love: GiveBIG to GeekGirlCon!

Written by Michele Carrico Domingo, Executive Director, GeekGirlCon

GeekGirlCon connects geeky women, girls, and their allies in order to build an empowering and inclusive community. Our mission is to celebrate and honor the legacy of women and girls in the fields of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math), comics, science-fiction, arts, literature, and game play and game design. Our impact centers around providing a safe and welcoming place to share our passions, amplifying underrepresented voices, and celebrating who we are and what we love.

GeekGirlCon’s largest event is a two-day convention in the fall that gives female geeks and their supporters the opportunity to build community, share facts and fandom, and learn how we can continue promoting and supporting women and other underrepresented groups in geek culture. We also bring people together through social media and community engagement events in the Greater Seattle Area. We have a lot of fun doing this, and we also embrace the engagement of more serious topics related to gender equity, inclusion, diversity, and intersectionality.

By supporting GeekGirlCon through GiveBIG, you will be supporting our work in building a community that creates space and opportunities for women and girls to discover what they love, whether it is through our DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Science Zone led by actual scientists and engineers, science-fiction writing, game creation, or artist creators. Our organizational goals can be distilled into the following credo:

We are Geeks.

We savor the scientific, the logical, and

the precise. We revel in the unknown, the

fantastic, and the unimaginable. We exist

in the in-between, where ingenuity

stretches possibility and transformation is born.

We code, concoct, create, and cosplay.

The imagination is our only limit and ours is limitless.

We are Girls.

And we are women, and femmes, and non-

binary/gender non-conforming individuals, and we are allies.

Our personalities are as diverse as our backgrounds and bodies.

We are many voices and countless tales.

We are diversity and we defy expectations.

We are a Community.

We break barriers and democratize

opportunity. We provide safe spaces to

do what we love: learn, connect, invent, and challenge.

We are here to fearlessly and fiercely celebrate one another.

Invest in GeekGirlCon through GiveBIG and support our vision of geeky women and girls having a safe and supportive community that is equitable, diverse, accessible, and empowering! We appreciate your commitment and are excited to see where your partnership takes us.

 

Sincerely,

Michele Carrico Domingo
