About this event

International Women's Day (IWD) is marked on March 8th every year. Google supports and celebrates women in technology through numerous initiatives to raise the visibility of women in tech.

IWD is an important moment to recognize how women have influenced the tech industry and beyond. On this IWD, we’re inviting our community leaders to share their stories. It will be a great opportunity to discuss how to become an #WomenTechMaker, the career path for women in tech, and what could be done to promote inclusivity and diversity in tech and/or academia?

This event is not just for women but open to all who support Women in Tech, Diversity and Inclusivity in our community.
