We're proud to announce that our Marketing Assistant Diamond Purvis was selected by Google to attend the Women Techmakers Summit in Atlanta tomorrow. A description of the summit from Google follows...
"Google strives to cultivate a wholly inclusive workplace around the globe. A key component of that vision is empowering women to pursue their dreams and build tools that change the world.
Having a diversity of perspectives and ideas leads to better decision-making, more relevant products, and makes the industry much more interesting. We believe that by creating the right environments, programs and policies, women in tech are better positioned to drive transformational change in the industry and beyond.
From Ada Lovelace to Grace Hopper (and thousands of Googlers), we're proud of the contributions women in technology make across our industry and across our company. Google supports and celebrates women in technology through numerous initiatives, including the Small Business Supplier Diversity and Accelerate with Google programs, the Google Cultural Institute, our Women Employee resource group, and more. International Women's Day is an important moment to recognize how women have influenced the tech industry and beyond.
Women Techmakers is Google's global program for women in technology. Kicked off in 2012 , Women Techmakers is now led by a global team of Googlers who are passionate about empowering women in technology through increased visibility, community, and resources."
