Definitely Does Compute: ModCloth’s Girl Geek Dinner

Last week, ModCloth teamed up with our local chapter of Girl Geek Dinners to host an evening of tech-savvy talks, networking, and, of course, fun! We’ve long loved the Girl Geek Dinners cause, which, its website explains, started in 2005 as a result of “one girl geek who got frustrated about being one of the only females attending technical events and being asked to justify why she was there by her male counterparts.”

Our sold out event featured lightning talks by five of our own girl geeks, who spoke to an audience of professionals and students on topics ranging from user testing tips to advice on launching your own startup.

The night started off with our co-founder and Chief Creative Officer, Susan, telling the story of how she started ModCloth in her college dorm room and what it’s like trying to democratize the fashion industry. Afterwards, our Head of PR discussed brand engagement and how to spread the word about your startup to young business phenoms-to-be. User Experience Researcher Laura gave a rundown on user research, and Project Manager Ashley shared her expertise on  project management principles. The talks closed with Product Manager Fiona, who offered advice to job-seekers on how to decide what type of startup to join.

Check out some snaps from the event, and let us know if you’d like to see us in your area!
