What's Missing in Your Geek Community?

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The ladies of the Geek Femspective want to promote a positive culture within the Chicago geek community and beyond. From helping a newbie put together a cosplay to promoting a fellow geek's event and more, the Chicago geek community can only create a welcoming, supportive geek culture by helping each other. With that mission in mind, these long-time Chicago geek culture supporters want to hear from you! Through this question-and-answer panel, we give the community a voice: What do you think it missing from your community? What would you like to see more of? What are some standout examples of a positive experience you've had in the community and how can we promote more of that?
