International Women’s Day (IWD) occurs on March 8th every year. It marks a moment to celebrate and provide visibility for the incredible contributions of women around the world and is a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
International Women’s Day (IWD) is Women Techmakers’ largest annual event campaign where events are hosted all around the world during the months of March and April in celebration of this moment.
From big summits to smaller, intimate gatherings, IWD is a time to host events that create connections, educate and inspire your tech community. IWD is also a way in which we support our mission of building a world where all women thrive in tech.
Join WTM Bamenda to celebrate amazing women thriving in technology both locally and globally. We would have lots of interesting talks and workshops from a pool of amazing speakers on career development, google technologies, technical writing, etc. It's gonna be so much fun!
PS: There will be food and swag!!!
