In honor of International Women's Day, we are joining GDGs worldwide to host a Women Techmakers event in the Bronx Innovation Lab. This is a joint event with Bronx Tech Meetup.
Join us for an evening of networking, talks and Q&A panels with Google Experts, IBM Professionals, Entrepreneurs, and College Students who started their careers in the Bronx.
Our event has been listed as one of the best things to do in NYC and Best NYC Startup & Corporate events for April.
More importantly, it is a great way to make connections that we hope will serve to drive new collaborations and conversations. We are collaborating on this event with BronxTech to bring the Bronx together.
The theme of the event is "The Path to Success"
Note: Men are strongly encouraged to join, attend and participate, showing their support and enthusiasm for all people regardless of gender race or creed.
