Women Techmakers & WiDS Lightning Talks

GDG Seattle
Mon, Aug 26, 2019, 6:00 PM (PDT)

About this event

"Women Techmakers" (Google's global program for women in tech) and "Women in Data Science" (https://www.meetup.com/Seattle-WiDS-Meetup/) are planning a joint-event with lightning talks by women speakers. Please RSVP only on one of the two meetups so that we have an accurate count.

The purpose of this event is to give visibility to women speakers, and provide an opportunity for women in tech to share knowledge and network with each other. While most of the attendees are women, everyone is welcome to attend!
