Google has decided to organise seven Women Techmakers (WTM) events in Pakistan this year to support and empower more than 1,550 women developers across five cities.
The seven events, which include rallies, workshops, networking opportunities, and conferences, will take place between March 8 and May. They are designed to give attendees training in a variety of entrepreneurship topics, such as leadership, technical skills, and how to overcome particular challenges faced by women in technology.
The IWD theme for WTM events this year is #DareToBe.
The events will be organized by regional WTM ambassadors with assistance from Google, according to the press release. The WTM ambassador programme helps tech-related women who want to make a difference and give back to their communities.

“These events, in cooperation with Women Techmakers (WTM) Ambassadors, not only highlight the successes of women in tech but will also inspire more women to join the rapidly expanding tech industry,” said Farhan S. Qureshi, Google’s Regional Director for Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka.
WTM and its ambassadors have supported different events over the years that have assisted women developers in realising their full potential. Nevertheless, the programme will advance diversity, equality, and inclusion in the digital industry, which is Google’s main goal, he continued.
According to a news report, WTM is a global programme by Google to give visibility, camaraderie, and tools for women in tech.
