First ever Google Women Techmaker - South West event announced - Software Cornwall

It has been announced that the first ever Google Women Techmaker – South West event will be held on Saturday 24th March.

The Cornish tech industry has been gaining a lot of national attention in recent years, due to the tireless efforts of not-for-profit organisation Software Cornwall.

The counties glowing results in the yearly Tech Nation report along with local companies like Headforwards, Lumira DX and Bluefruit competing on a global level have really helped raise awareness of our thriving tech scene.

It is due to this, that Cornwall is hosting the first ever Google Women Techmaker event – South West. Normally these events are only held in major cities, across the world.

The event is aimed at women working in tech who want to elevate their careers, or women who are aspiring to work in tech.

It is free to attend, and tickets are open for registration on EventBrite.

The day will have live, hands on code labs suitable for all abilities, inspiring talks from women working on amazing tech projects, as well as some training in softer skills such as presentation skills for women and networking.

Everyone is welcome to attend the event, which will be held in the Opie Building at Cornwall College.  Whether you already work and study tech, or you are interested in finding out more about career pathways.  Groups are welcome.

Please follow the events social media accounts for more updates, including the full line up for the day.

To have this event held in Cornwall is a major achievement, and we hope that women in tech from across the South West can attend, making it a momentus and memorable day.
