The students, faculty and community members of the University of Washington would like to send their deepest condolences to the family and friends of the victims of the terrorist attack in Garissa, Kenya. As members of a higher learning institute, we are horrified and devastated by the loss of 147 lives— mainly college students like many of us.
On Thursday, all communities are welcomed as we are gathering to mourn their lives and stand in solidarity with Kenyans everywhere.

(including fall 2015

Next month, the third annual She’s Geeky Unconference is being held in Fremont. I copied the description from their eventbrite below, but I also want to say that I went last year and found the connections and discussion really valuable and empowering! It’s highly encouraged to bring your daughters along as well 🙂 All female-identified people in STEM careers and self-identified geeks are welcome.
