Women Techmakers is Google’s global program for women in technology. Kicked off in 2012, Women Techmakers is led by a global team of Googlers who are passionate about empowering women in technology through increased visibility, community and resources.
Why does Google celebrate IWD?
From Ada Lovelace to Grace Hopper (and thousands of Googlers), we're proud of the contributions women in technology make across our industry and across our company. Google supports and celebrates women in technology through numerous initiatives, including the Small Business Supplier Diversity and Accelerate with Google programs, the Google Cultural Institute, our Women@ employee resource group, and more. International Women's Day is an important moment to recognize how women have influenced the tech industry and beyond.
