A well-known special interest group celebrates its 15th anniversary with laptop donations, renewing its commitment to and support for women’s empowerment.
Gorgeous Geeks, a well-known non-governmental organisation committed to women’s empowerment through technology, celebrated its 15th anniversary today at KL Wellness City in Bukit Jalil. Gorgeous Geeks was founded with the purpose of encouraging the use of technology as an integral part of women’s lifestyles. Since then, the organisation has grown into a force that supports gender equality for the benefit of all.
Gorgeous Geeks patrons Datuk Yasmin Mahmood, Managing Partner at Future Ready Consulting, and Anne Abraham, founder and Chairperson at LeadWomen, graced the event. TPr. Wee Huay Neo, Advisor at PIKOM E-Commerce Malaysia, and Datuk Ng Wan Peng, Director at Digital Penang, were also present.
Julia Koh, Gorgeous Geeks’ President, shared with the fabulous, pink-clad attendees, the organization’s important milestones over the previous 15 years, focusing on how it created a significant effect in helping women harness technology for their businesses and careers.
Gorgeous Geeks is pleased to announce the donation of ten laptop computers to four organisations helping underprivileged children, namely Dignity for Children Foundation, House of Joy, Yayasan Sunbeams Homes, and Community at Heart, as part of their 15th anniversary celebrations. This philanthropic venture strives to offer these worthy children with the necessary tools to excel in different aspects of their lives and empower them to attain their goals.
“Our 15th anniversary marks an important milestone for Gorgeous Geeks.” “It gives us great joy to commemorate this occasion by giving back to our community and supporting disadvantaged children through the power of technology,” Koh added. “We believe that by providing children with the necessary tools and skills, we can help them thrive in the digital age and overcome the barriers that they face.”

Gorgeous Geeks’ activities, projects, causes, and donations continue to equip women with critical tech skills and knowledge, in keeping with the organization’s social impact and empowerment mission.
“Our contribution and support for charitable causes go hand-in-hand with our belief that by empowering women through technology, they can have a positive social and economic impact on their family, community, and society,” Koh stated.
“The key to our success and longevity lies in our firm belief in the power of empowerment—whether through skill-building workshops, leadership and entrepreneur programmes, or networking events,” Koh noted.
Gorgeous Geeks has recognised and championed the transformative power of technology and the enormous potential it holds for women since its inception in January 2008. The group provides a venue for learning and conversation on the opportunities and gaps for women’s personal and professional growth through conferences, training and workshops, networking events, and webinars under its four pillars: SHARE, LEARN, SUPPORT, and SHOWCASE.
“Through a variety of events, workshops, and conferences, we have trained over 3,000 women in eight cities to date.” “I’m happy to report that 100% of the participants found the programmes beneficial to them and their companies, indicating that their digital knowledge has improved,” Koh said.
Gorgeous Geeks would like to express its deepest appreciation to all of its loyal members, partners, patrons, and sponsors who have supported its cause over the years. Their steadfast dedication and contributions helped to empower many women and shape the organization’s success.
