Description

Women Techmakers is a Google global initiative to reduce the gender gap in the technology industry, providing women with the resources they need to succeed.

You can join for free, all events are free as well. If you have experience in the industry, you can join as an ambassador and expand the program in your area. Otherwise, you can join as a member.

There are several Women Techmakers communities around the world, for different countries and regions. This community is available in over 193 countries, and each division organizes its own initiatives (following general guidelines).

For each division of the community, there is a Slack group. Inside, you will be able to connect and interact with other women in tech from your area. This will allow you to develop friendships while expanding your professional network. Online groups are also a great place to ask questions, give feedback, and share resources with other members.

Furthermore, each division organizes several events, both virtual and in-person, to mentor members. You can participate in webinars, workshops, roundtables, and expert talks. Annually, there is an event called WTM. This event usually lasts two days or more and is full of conferences and networking opportunities.

Lastly, being a member of Women Techmakers will give you access to exclusive resources to build your technical knowledge. You can enjoy anything from articles, guides, and videos, to podcasts, training resources, and even certifications!
