in celebration of International Women's Day
This month, Women Techmakers from around the world are orchestrating and attending 100+ events that aim to increase the visibility, community, and resources for women in the technology industry. We've launched womentechmakers.com as the hub for this global event series, with a non-stop feed of our #womentechmakers posts from around the web. Please join in this movement in supporting women in tech by attending an event or making a post online with our hashtag.
Our friends are also hosting a Hangout On Air tomorrow at 9am PDT with leading entrepreneurship organizations and founders and will be hosted by Google's own . They will discuss how we can rethink the gender gap in the startup ecosystem, and talk about #40forward campaign - where they are giving out $1 million to 40 start-up communities to increase the number of women in their programs by 25% in 2014. Make sure to RSVP for the HOA here http://goo.gl/vFOnv0
These initiatives kick off a whole month of honoring women globally and I'm so proud to be a part of it. Please enjoy the video below which features Nazia from in Pakistan - she is one of the many women who are making a difference this year.
