About this event

• What we'll do
We are proud to be hosting the 2018 International Women's Day Celebration, a women's tech conference. This event will highlight the stories of our growing female community of designers, developers, and technology entrepreneurs.

[International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. International Women’s Day, is a day to celebrate the achievements of women while calling for greater equality within our communities. As Women Tech makers powered by Google Developer Groups (GDG Jalingo), we plan to do this by improving our programs thus increasing women GDG members through increased collaboration and raising awareness through social media. This years IWD theme is Building a new Horizon. We intend to use this opportunity to expand our activities and offer women within our host community a platform to collaborate and fulfill their potential as techs and entrepreneurs.]
