 Toi B. Wright of One Stop Designs tells us about organizing a Girl Geek Dinner and gives us some great ideas for activities for women in technology groups.  She also talks about the We Are Microsoft Charity Challenge Weekend, http://wearemicrosoft.com/.  (Because this video is published so far after the recording date, the event has already taken place, sorry!  I’m sure there will be one next year as well.  If you’re interested in coding for a good cause, you may want to look into Give Camps.)
