About Women Techmakers

Women Techmakers is Google’s global program for women in technology. WTM provides visibility, community, and resources for women in technology to drive innovation and participation in the field. WTM events are designed to promote an environment of inclusivity for women in technology, as well as celebrate women leading the industry. We want to advance, grow, and celebrate women developers, designers, and technology entrepreneurs across all phases of their career.

The general objective of WTM’s activities is to increase awareness and participation of women in technical events, by promoting technology-based and technical know-how to enhance problem-solving skills.


International Women's Day Global Series

International Women’s Day (IWD) is marked on March 8th every year, and this marks our 3rd year celebrating WTM's IWD in Kota Kinabalu. In different regions, the focus of celebrations ranges from general respect and appreciation toward women to a celebration of women’s economic, political, and social achievements. Google supports and celebrates women in technology through numerous initiatives, and considers International Women's Day an important moment to recognize how women have influenced the tech industry and beyond.
