About the dinner
This dinner is at a private home, your host will order in Thai food and split the bill. Vegetarian and gluten-free options will be available.

About your host
Jen Garfield is a Product Lead at The Knot. She leads a team of 10+ PMs, designers, and engineers that guide and connect couples with the products, services and vendors they need to pull off a wedding that is uniquely their own. She has moved here from Austin 4 years ago coming from the b2b start-up world and was in San Francisco working at a digital media agency before that. On the side, Jen continues her search for the best pizza slice in NYC.

What to expect: 
This is a dinner series to help women in tech in NYC get to know each other. Your host will guide the conversation around the table asking questions that go beyond just networking to form deeper connections. At the end of the dinner, we ask you to commit to give back to the community by helping women in tech in any small way that works for you like hosting your own dinner, helping someone you just met at the table or mentoring someone at work.
