Google strives to cultivate a wholly inclusive workplace around the globe. A key component of that vision is empowering women to pursue their dreams and build tools that change the world. We believe that when organizations create the right environments, programs and policies, women in technology can thrive.
That’s why, in conjunction with International Women’s Day on March 8th, Google is partnering with Women Techmakers to launch launch a series of global events geared towards increasing visibility, community, and resources for technical women in our industry.
We’re excited to be hosting one of these local events right here in Cambridge — and we hope you will join us! The event will include panel discussions with female technology leaders, networking opportunities, and more. In true Google fashion, there will be plenty of food and giveaways.
