About this event

Google Developers Group (GDG) came up with a wonderful theme for this year's International Women's Day, called "ProgressNotPerfection". This theme alone explains a lot in regard to life, be it for a woman or a man. It celebrates all kinds of progress - big or small - and the strength we demonstrate when we don’t let fear hold us back from following our dreams.

Our paths aren’t always linear, and we may come across seemingly impossible challenges, but when we celebrate #ProgressNotPerfection, we are celebrating all we’ve accomplished - big and small - and our inner strength and resilience that allowed us to get here.

You must be wondering, "Isn't International Women's Day on March 8th?". Yes, it is but isn't every day a women's day? We take this opportunity to get together women and men in an online platform where two wonderful women speakers will share their journey and progress, and together let's discuss the strength of progression over perfection.
