About this event

GDG Tucson launched a sustainability series this year. Join us each month through the end of 2021 as we discover how technology can be used to achieve the UN Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs).

This month's virtual workshop addresses SDG #5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.

Despite improvements, full gender equality remains unreached. Only about 35% of the employees in the five largest global tech companies are female. While Tucson has made some strides, notably by electing our first Latina mayor in the 246 year history of the city and an increase of woman-owned businesses that is approaching parity. However, much work remains to be done - locally and globally.

Join us this month for a deep dive into opportunities for women in the tech industry, education, and society.
