In preparation for the big book launch on May 23, we gathered a few of the hundreds of women we’ve interviewed through the years to talk about the code among women in tech to help each other advance. The result is this uplifting video that really portrays the spirit of Geek Girl Rising — and also includes some of the cool early accolades the book received.
Thank you to our stars: Tanya Van Court, Ayna Agarwal, Adda Birnir, Diana Murakhovskaya, and Natalia Oberti Noguera for taking the time for Heather and Sam to interview you on-camera. We are grateful to Nadine Gilden of Curious Light, who created the beautiful graphics, Andrew Schutzman for editing the piece, Tommy Hawkins for videography and also to WeFest, WOC Tech Chat, and the Anita Borg Institute/Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing for the beautiful images that reflect the diversity and energy of the landscape of amazing people succeeding in technology. Oh – and that funky track is by Polyrhythmics. Thank you, all!!
