Women Techmakers 是 Google 支持的面向女性技术从业者的全球系列活动,旨在促进女性在技术领域的参与,帮助她们创造改变世界的工具,从而有更多机会去实现梦想,在各自的领域获得成长、提升和成功。

故事从 Anita Borg 博士开始……

美国计算机科学家 Anita Borg(1949-2003)博士一生致力于鼓励女性从事计算机科学技术工作,她的梦想是在2020年的时候,科技业人才中有50%是女性。

为了纪念她,Google 在全球启动了 Women Techmakers Scholars Program (前称 “Anita Borg 计算机学科女性奖学金”),以奖励计算机科学及相关技术学科的女性学生。

多年来,Google 希望通过这样的项目激励更多计算机学科女学生在自己所研究的领域中有所贡献,从而鼓励更多女性从事相关工作。Women Techmakers Scholars Program 已经在全球88个国家共168个城市奖励了近2000名学生。


Women Techmakers Scholars Program 2018 亚太地区申请现已开放。

今年,我们会邀请亚太区奖学金得主齐聚新加坡,展开为期3天的交流之旅。届时,来自 Google 的女性领导者会和大家面对面分享职业规划和心得体会,妳也可以结识优秀的女性学者,更希望妳能成为领袖,为更多女性做出榜样,鼓励她们在技术和编程领域走得更加勇敢。

心怀梦想的妳;致力于运用科技改变世界的妳;鼓舞女性参与到计算机科学研究领域中的妳;拥有创造力、影响力、凝聚力的妳 …… 我们期待着和每个妳相遇。
