Gr8Ladies also hosts a private nabble forum for anyone looking for a safe place to ask beginner questions. Groovy experts are available to answer questions.


Back in March 2014, when we were just getting going, it became clear that we needed to define who we are and what our purpose is. This blog post written by Co-Founder Jenn also goes over a brief history of Gr8Ladies.
