The FanDames Initiative

The FanDames Initiative is an a non-profit organization that empowers women in the geek and nerd fandoms. We actively support all women in our community by creating a safe and healthy environment for self-expression.

The FanDames Initiative formed in June/July 2014 with the combined efforts of former Carolina D20 Girls. The girls sought to create an organization with the mission of creating fellowship among all women geeks across all fandoms. How do we do this? We volunteer at events and conventions, host contests, lead panels and generally bring a positive attitude everywhere we go, its that simple.

We are available for events and conventions. For booking information, please message on us Facebook. Visit it on our Facebook page and give us a like!
