International Women’s Day (IWD) #DareToBe is Women Techmakers’ largest annual event campaign where Ambassadors host events all around the world during the months of March and April in celebration of this moment.
IWD is a time to host events that create connections, educate and inspire your tech community. IWD is also a way in which we support our mission of building a world where all women thrive in tech.
The definition of to dare is to have the courage to try something new; to defy or challenge norms; to be brave and willing take risks.
When we Dare to Be: we explore what it would mean to be audaciously bold, to walk through the world with courage and confidence. We are willing to try something new, to step outside of our comfort zone and to be unapologetically ourselves. We don’t let societal or cultural roles or norms dictate who we are or how big we can dream.
The beauty of “Dare To Be” is that it is part of a larger sentence: you can dare to be bold, to be innovative, to be resilient - it can apply to so many aspects of our lives. And to approach the theme from this perspective - to allow anyone to imagine what they dare to be - we recognize that each of us has something unique to offer. Everyone brings a different set of skills and strengths to the table. And when we as a community are able to harness the diversity of all those skills and courageous actions, we are able to continue our goal to build a world where all women can thrive in tech.

I'm a software engineer with 30+ years of experience in a large variety of systems, hardware and software, digital and analogue. I describe myself more as a generalist than a specialist although I focus my cloud activities on the Google ecosystem of technologies.
I have a beautiful 19-year-old daughter Skye, who is my world, watching her develop inspires me to continue to push myself. Outside of GCP, and Cloud-Native, my favourite series are Lost and Westworld, I enjoy gaming, outdoor sports, travelling, spending time with friends, and family, also tinkering on my variety of AR and VR devices.
