​International Women’s Day (IWD) is the Women Techmakers’ largest annual campaign. It is happening around the globe in March and April in different cities and in different formats. This year, GDG Toronto presents you one of the IWD events in Toronto.

​This year, we have speakers with backgrounds like VR, VPN, data analysts, social media, and mental wellbeing. They are covering a wide range of topics from startup journey to data analysis with big data to job hunting in the current wobbly market.

  • ​This is a diverse event. While the event focuses on showcasing women empowerment, as long as you are someone interested in learning more about technologies and our covering topics, or you simply want to meet other amazing human beings, you are more than welcomed to join us!
