Please join She+ Geeks Out and Intralinks at their beautiful offices in Midtown for a night of networking, eating and drinking! You’ll walk away with more knowledge, new connections, and a full belly! The word “resilience” and “grit” gets thrown around a lot these days. We’re going to ask what does it really mean to be resilient? What does that look like, both professionally and personally and how can we be more resilient, while still being kind to ourselves? We’ll talk with three fantastic women+ about how their unique challenges have led to a variety of positive outcomes. Agenda 6pm-7pm: Registration, networking, eating, drinking 7pm-8pm: Panel & raffle prizes (yes we offer geektastic raffle prizes!) 8pm-9pm: More networking! Speakers Moderator: Joanne Hayer, Senior Director, Sales Enablement and Training at Intralinks Panelists Christina Koukkos, Founder & President Koukkos Consulting Jane Zhu, Junior Software Engineer at ShopKeep Kerrissa Lynch, Product Manager at WW FAQs Can I get a refund? Yes, up to one week prior to the event! This helps us better manage our waitlist. We are not able to accommodate last minute cancellations since they are tricky from an administrative standpoint. Request a refund here up to one week prior to the event! When should I arrive? Our event starts at 6 PM. Please try not to come by before then– while we love to see your friendly faces, we need that time to set up and get everything ready before things get going. You’ll just be sitting around awkwardly otherwise and that’s no fun for anyone. What if the event is sold out or ticket sales have ended, can I just show up at the door? Unfortunately not! If we’re sold out that means we are really sold out! You can certainly add yourself to the waitlist, but if you haven’t received an actual ticket from Eventbrite for this event, we won’t be able to let you in the door. If you’re seeing ticket sales have ended (which is the day before the event), we’ve had to stop selling tickets in order to ensure we’ve got the food ordered properly and nametags set! Can I transfer my ticket? We currently do not accept ticket transfers, so if you know you can’t go, please update your ticket information by editing it via the link provided to you in your Eventbrite email. What do I need to bring to an event? Other than your smiles? You should bring a form of ID. You won’t need to print out the PDF of the ticket, though– we will look you up when you arrive using all the digital things. How do I know if I qualify as a geek? What can I expect? Take a look at our FAQs on the website! Where can I park? All of our events are public transportation accessible, but we understand that sometimes you have to park. If you do, we recommend you use the BestParking website. Do you have food that’s gluten free/vegetarian/vegan? We do request that our sponsors include these options, but we are ultimately beholden to what they order. Most of the time these options are provided! Thanks to Intralinks for sponsoring!
