About this event

Women Techmakers is Google's global program and brand for women in technology. Every year, in celebration of International Women's Day, WomenTechmakers chapters across the globe host talks, conferences, and workshops to raise awareness of innovative female leaders in technology and inspire others to join the field.

This year our theme celebrates all kinds of progress - big or small - and the strength we demonstrate when we don’t let fear hold us back from following our dreams.

Our paths aren’t always linear, and we may come across seemingly impossible challenges, but when we celebrate #ProgressNotPerfection, we are celebrating all we’ve accomplished - big and small - and our inner strength and resilience that allowed us to get here.


This year, Women Techmakers Ambassadors in collaboration with GDSC Japan, Australia and New Zealand have come together to host a virtual International Women’s Day summit on April 28th. We are planning a day full of inspirational talks and practical workshops.

We are excited to announce 4 speakers from research, industry and community development:
