Women Techmakers: Make your passion.

Kelvin Doe of Sierra Leone Invents From E-Waste

Young maker Kelvin Doe is an inventor of the highest caliber. With locally sourced materials from dustbins, Kelvin is developing practical, scrappy, and useful solutions for his local community. I'm really impressed with his ingenuity, and his desire to help his family really touched my heart.

"In Sierra Leone, we have not too much electricity.  The lights will come on once in a week and the rest of the month, dark. So I made my own battery to power lights in people's houses."

Celebrating great women in technology. #womentechmakers  
Meet Brina Lee, Instagram's first female engineer. 

"It’s great now that +Instagram is a part of Facebook, so we can leverage all the women here! It’s so awesome seeing Jocelyn [Goldfein]. She’s one of the highest engineering directors here at Facebook, and because [Sheryl Sandberg’s] at the top, I think all the male engineers here do look at women differently and allow us to go up the ladder."

Hacking AND Getting My Yoga On? Yes Please.

Hey all, a former coworker, +Robert Ing,  is helping a company called Hackfit ( throw a health and fitness-focused hackathon in SF from 3/21-3/23. They are trying to turn the notion of a hackathon on its head by infusing group fitness classes and healthy meals. Instead of a weekend with Red Bull and pizza, imagine taking breaks from coding your fitness/health app to participate in 100+ person yoga sessions, rock climbing classes, and fitness bootcamps. I really like this approach of blending worlds, especially because it's hard to be powered by caffeine for hours on end and think outside of the box at the same time.

Hackfit is bringing these events to other major cities, so check out other dates on their site!

Looking forward to sharing the Women Techmakers experience with you all this year. Proud to be working with the I/O team to create greater gender diversity at one of my favorite tech conferences.

Only 126 days until the 7th annual Google I/O, when we come together with amazing developers like you to talk about what's next. On June 25-26, 2014, we’ll be broadcasting live from Moscone West. You can join us in person in San Francisco or remotely, via a live stream and through I/O Extended community events around the world. 

More details to come next month, including registration info. In the meantime, you can check out highlights from last year at

Also, quick note for those who want to join in person: this year we’re making some changes to registration, so you won’t need to scramble the second registration opens. We'll be implementing a new system, where you can submit your interest to attend Google I/O 2014. Successful applicants will then be randomly selected and notified shortly thereafter. We’ll be following up with more details from +GoogleDevelopers, so stay tuned.

On Set with Women Techmakers

Today I sat in on a Women Techmakers taping for an upcoming episode featuring VP of Technology at Nest Yoky Matsuoka, CEO of AnthroTronix Cori Latham, and Google[x] VP +Megan Smith. The conversation spanned from their early careers, to present day work - all anchored in robotics. They touched on how robotics can increase ability (decreasing disability), how our mobile phones are robots, and how having more women in technology means we'll have more technology-based solutions that serve women audiences.  

Be on the look out for these shows at more at

I'm grateful for the incredible women (and men) I work with everyday. I feel challenged and supported by their genius, and having friends that will coordinate outfits with you doesn't hurt either.

Women Techmakers Goes Global
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 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 +Google for Entrepreneurs 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 +Bridgette Beam. They will discuss how we can rethink the gender gap in the startup ecosystem, and talk about +Google for Entrepreneurs   #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 

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  +GDG Karachi in Pakistan - she is one of the many women who are making a difference this year.

That Moment When Your Face Is Trending On Mashable

Way to go Monday! Now you all know what I do when I'm not on the interwebs. Pool parties infused with yoga and general mischief. What they don't tell you is Quinn (who is interviewing people in the video) gave the best Ignite talk where he rapped about his vacation. And yes, I'm "nataliaenvy" on Instagram ;)
