Celebrating leading women in the tech industry

Google believes that diversity is important for thriving, vibrant communities. And focusing on women's inclusion is the first step.

Women Techmakers is Google’s global program for women in technology. It serves as a community and resource for women in technology to drive innovation and participation in the field. 

WTM Manila was started by Google Developer Group Philippines in 2013. Because of its success, the event was hosted annually as a way to celebrate International Women’s month.

Since then, it has become a platform to showcase the different works, passions, achievements, and successes of Filipina women in the technology industry.

This year, with the theme “Telling Our Story,” Google aims to highlight the unique stories of Filipina women in technology. They invited a diverse set of speakers from different fields to share their stories.

Be inspired and empowered by these women:
