Women Techmakers is a program created by Google to celebrate International Women's Day and to highlight the talent of women in technology. In 2017, we decided to organize the second edition in Montreal as part of the special event "The Women Techmakers Global Event Series Celebrating International Women’s Day" (WTM IWD). This program has been in over 200 global events and seen across 52 countries. The main focus of this community-building initiative is to promote talented and passionate women, increase the visibility of the Montreal technology community and honour women in technology.
Why should you sponsor?
Last year’s one day only event had more than 200 attendees, 17 speakers and 7 sponsors. After such a huge success, we want to recreate this experience. This year's event will span over the course of two days, on April 1st & 2nd 2017 with over 300 attendees.
We are looking for established and well-known name in the Montreal Technology community and we think you would make an exceptional sponsor. During last year’s event, 78% of our attendees were women. To be a sponsor of this year’s event would a good way for your company to get in touch with women who are passionate about Technology to encourage diversity and create new partnerships.
