In celebration of the 2017 International Women’s Day (IWD ’17), The Google Women Techmakers program would be hosting a series of events (Summits and Meetups). The Summits happen at Google offices around the world and applications are welcome from anyone (including Lagos, although, the venue is yet to be determined). While, the Meetups happen at non-Google venues hosted by the Google Developers Group in the area. One of such is Covenant University, Ota, Ogun State, Nigeria.
What is Google’s Women Techmakers Program?
Simply, it is a program that provides visibility, community, and resources for women in Technology. According to their site, it “Kicked off in 2012 as a once-per-year event at I/O by then VP of Google[x] Megan Smith, Women Techmakers is now led by Head of Global Programs Natalie Villalobos and a global team of Googlers who are passionate about empowering women in technology.”
