Support our Scholarship Program!

GDI rejects the stereotypes that women and non-binary individuals aren’t interested in technology and that people can’t learn tech as adults. GDI chooses to focus on affordable education services for adults who might otherwise be unable to access tech classes, letting them know it’s never too late for them to learn. We are raising $7,200 before May to provide 10 more scholarships in 2023. Please make a donation today and support our scholarships.

LinkedIn Profile Boot Camp

Career Conversations

Thu, Nov 17, 5:30 PM (UTC)


About this event

LinkedIn is critical to showcase your experience.  Whether you are looking for your next job or just looking to expand your network, your profile needs to tell a compelling story about YOU!  

While many of us know this, it is hard to put it in practice. It can feel awkward to "sell" yourself on LinkedIn and make new connections.

This fun and interactive event is designed to help take the next steps, wherever you are in your career. We will be working with volunteers from Medallia. 

Event Agenda:

  • Welcome and Introductions
  • Discussion: How to Create a Great LinkedIn Profile? 
  • Working Session: 1:1 breakout sessions to review and edit your profile
  • Wrap up: Review the outcomes and discuss next steps.

What to expect:  

Come ready to share your Linkedin profile and make real time edits.  It is okay if you are just starting or have been updating your account for years - our volunteers will be prepared to meet you where you are at and provide valuable support. 

If you do not have a Linkedin profile, please establish an account before this event. 

Note:  This event is limited in attendance (since each attendee will be matched with a volunteer) so please let us know if you sign up and your plans change. 

Code of Conduct:

The GDI's mission is focused on providing opportunities for women to learn web and software development, but our classes and events are open to all genders and identities. We are dedicated to providing a welcoming and comfortable environment for all to learn to code and every attendee is expected to uphold our Code of Conduct (
