About this event

We all need #CourageToCreate after 2020 so let’s create the new narrative for tech industry together. Google supports and celebrates women in technology through numerous initiatives, one of them is International Women's Day (IWD) event happening all around the globe for years during March and April. It's also growing in Armenia, this year - in an exciting online event on 25 April, Sunday.

Women Techmakers Yerevan and Girls in Tech - Armenia are the organizers of the event which marks a moment to celebrate and provide visibility for the incredible contributions of women around the world and is a call to action for accelerating gender parity. The managing director of Girls in Tech Armenia - Seda Papoyan started Women Techmakers' chapter in Yerevan to inspire even more women and allies across the globe!

This year our theme 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 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.
