Women Techmakers Berlin opening event - celebrating International Women's Day

About this event

International Women’s Day, which is officially on March 8, 2015, is a day to celebrate the achievements of women while calling for greater equality within our communities. As part of the Women Techmakers, powered by Google Developer Groups (GDG), we plan to do this by improving our programs thus increasing women GDG members through increased collaboration and raising awareness through social media. 

The program for WTM Berlin 2016 is an even greater hands-on experience, more details at the event!

Join us for the opening event, with wine and light dinner, to celebrate the start of the program in Berlin. Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/238026849871206
