Girl Geek Dinners was founded in 2005 by Sarah Lamb who was tired of being the only woman at technical events. In 2012 Edria Fleming saw an article written about Sarah and became fascinated with her story because just like Sarah she had a similar story of being the only woman at tech events and at work but often times being the only minority in the room. Edria decided to email Sarah and have a discussion about starting Austin Girl Geek Dinners and that is where it all began.
Austin Girl Geek Dinner (AGGD) was established in 2015 by Edria Fleming and is part of the Girl Geek Dinners network.
Edria started Austin Girl Geek Dinners in 2012. She is the owner of Geek-e-Gurl Designs a small business which provides business to business technical services.
