Little Miss Geek is inspiring the next generation of young girls to become Tech Pioneers. We will do for the tech industry what Jamie Oliver did for school dinners; to cause nationwide change from the ground up.
Belinda Parmar (Founder and CEO of Lady Geek) kick started the campaign with her book Little Miss Geek in Oct 2012 in the Apple Store, which explores the biggest barriers to girls wanting careers in the tech and games industry. Over the last 6 months, we have held Little Miss Geek Academies in London schools. We have given girls their first introduction to coding, helped them design their own level in a video game and brought some of the most influential women in the tech industry to the classroom. See this video and coverage to see what we have been up to.
Our vision is to run Little Miss Geek Academies in every school for every girl in every country where women are under-represented.
We have had amazing support from the tech industry, teachers and MP’s and Politicians including Boris Johnson, Mayor of London and Simon Hughes, Deputy Leader of Liberal Democrats who came to our events.
We won’t rest until women make up 50% of the UK’s tech workforce.
