This is great of course, but since this is a group focused on women; I'm wondering if Google has programs for the many women who are trying to return or enter technology as well as programs to keep women in Tech?

It would be nice not to have to wait 10 years to change the status quo, no?

Co-founder of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, discusses his thoughts on women roles in tech.

Share with us your experiences and what inspired you to be in the STEM/tech field!
Jack Dorsey knows code. The co-founder of Twitter and CEO of the mobile payments company Square, Dorsey has the perfect pedigree of a Silicon Valley programmer turned business mogul. Dorsey grew up in tech at a time when men dominated the field. They still do. Only about 20 percent of programmers are women. But with changing attitudes and programs like Square’s College Code Camp, which Dorsey participates in, the gender gap is slowly starting to ...

Inspirational & empowering read for the week!

"All across Africa, the number of women entering the tech industry is improving thanks to the several nonprofit groups teaching girls how to code and the bigger availability of funds."

#womentechmakers   #womenintech   #WtechAfrica  
Female techies across Africa are joining forces to help each other break the glass ceiling in a largely male-dominated industry.

My favorite place BY FAR for coffee. The atmosphere here is spot on and I love the industrial look and feel to this place. It's tucked in a somewhat sketch area, but to be honest, it's totally fine to walk to. If I could, I'd love to come here and work. Get their lattes!

Came here for drinks and then ordered some light appetizers. Wine selection and cocktail choices are fabulous! Definitely try their California Sauvignon Blanc. We ordered the grilled octopus appetizer which pairs really well with the fried avocados and citrus fruit that comes paired with it. A little bit on the pricier end, but would definitely come back for a special occasion.

I love this place! Their spicy angel wings are to die for and I actually prefer these over the infamous dry fried chicken wings served at San Tung. This has more of a tangy kick that just hits the right spot. Also, be sure to try their mango sticky rice dessert!

Colibri is gluten-free friendly, so you're in luck! They have some really chunky guac that's to die for and dipping sauces for warm, house-made tortillas. And the great thing about this place is that you can get authentic mexican foods at such a prime location that's so close to Union Square.

This place has interesting menu items like their doughnut bacon burger (which sounds obscure and much more like a bite into heart attack land). I had their dark and gruesome salad which was sooo good (mostly because of the plentiful bacon pieces) and their sweet potato tater tots are pretty much out of this world. The only downside is that the lighting is far too dim to read the menu at the dinner hour. I could barely see what was on my plate.

This place gets busy really quick and getting a seat can be a good 20-40 min wait. The food here is decent, although, I would highly suggest other Chinese restaurants that have the same, if not similar dishes, for a few bucks less. Came here with a few guy friends and we all really liked the salt cod fried rice. The smoked beef brisket noodle soup was alright, although it tasted like watered-down BBQ sauce instead of a wok-seared smoky flavor. We also ordered a cold-plated appetizer dish that had sea urchin in it, which was definitely interesting.

Not a fan of their clam chowder (as it's more potato than actual clam...what can I say? The east coast is legit for this sorta thang!) but I love the window display of animals made of sourdough bread!
