Gone are those days when not many women students opted for a course in technology due to varied reasons. Today, women stand as equal to men in all fields, and more and more women are opting for careers in technology.
But, in this world where technology is changing rapidly, is it enough to just have the skills in the tech field? More than having skills, being able to grab the right opportunities to learn, network and show your talents to the world is of utmost importance. The Geek angles summit provides the right platform for all those women in tech out there who are fresh out of college or are still pursuing their technology studies.
The Geek Angels is a non-profit, one-stop hub for women involved in the tech field. It provides a platform to learn, share, ideate, innovate, collaborate and develop solutions for the problems in this world. It allows women to work with people from varied fields and learn cutting edge technologies. They help the participants to get the best of the time spent which in turn propels their career prospects.
