About this event

Women Techmakers is Google's global program and brand for women in technology. Every year, in celebration of International Women's Day, WomenTechmakers chapters across the globe host talks, conferences, and workshops to raise awareness of innovative female leaders in technology and inspire others to join the field.

This year, chapters across the UK and Ireland have come together to host an online UK&I International Women’s Day summit on March 20th. We are planning a day full of inspirational talks and practical workshops and we want to hear from YOU!

Our theme for 2021 is based on 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.

So…. what will you have the #CouragetoCreate in 2021?

Our events follow our Code of Conduct.
