About this event

Women Techmakers (WTM) ― a Google owned-brand ― provides visibility, community, and resources for women in technology globally across all career levels to support them in joining, thriving, and leading the industry.

As we celebrate International Women’s Month, the Women Techmakers Groups in the Philippines ― WTM Cagayan de Oro, WTM Manila, WTM Bacolod, WTM Zamboanga, WTM Baguio, and WTM Cebu ― had collaborated to host the annual #IWD21 (International Women’s Day 2021) event.

This year, with our theme #CourageToCreate, we want to celebrate the incredible strength and power women have shown in the face of adversity. We recognize that there were tremendous challenges over the past year, especially for women, from dealing with COVID to broader issues of racial justice and human rights. But we remain hopeful about the future and the belief that together our community can create positive change throughout the world.

This event aims to celebrate and provide visibility for the incredible contributions of women around the world and is a call to action for accelerating gender parity. This will give women opportunities to meet individuals with the same drive and passion; networking and exposing them to opportunities through engagement with different field leading speakers on diverse topics focusing on personal and professional advancement along with social issues.

Inlight with the COVID-19 situation, we are bringing our event online. Students and professionals will be given the chance to learn from field leading speakers as they share some of their many contributions in technology and beyond.
