About this event

We are proud to be hosting a 2019 International Women's Day Celebration sponsored by Women Techmakers and Aims Community College. This event will highlight the stories of our growing female community of designers, developers, and technology entrepreneurs.

One of the most powerful thing women can do for other women in the field of technology is to simply share our stories.

We would love to hear about your experience in technology! We would like to collect 2 to 5 min. stories from women who would like to share their experience with us. We would like to record and post the stories to youtube for other women around the world. The first 10 women volunteers to share their story will be awarded a very special gift bag (worth up to 15$). We will be providing refreshments and possibly other schwag for all participants, even those who do not want to share. Join us anyway!

Please come and contribute your story or hear the stories of others and celebrate women in technology at this event. All women in technology are invited to join us at Aims on April 26 from 6 to 8 pm in the Ed Beaty theater.

About Aims:
Aims Associate Professor Jennifer Bailey is an organizer of the Google Developer Group and host of the event. After joining Aims in 2011 to teach Mobile Application development, she sought resources in the community to help her learn what the industry knows about technology. When Women Techmakers formed a few years later, Google and the GDG encouraged her to get involved as a woman who works in education and technology.
