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.

We invited 4 amazing speakers, women from research, software engineering and community development to celebrate #ProgressNotPerfection! Our speakers will share their paths, which aren’t always linear, and the challenges they've come across. We hope it will inspire you to follow your dreams and don't let fear hold you from growth and discovery, enjoying the journey, wherever it takes! Join the celebration by registering here.
