Women Developer Academy

Google’s Women Developer Academy is currently accepting applications – could you become a leader in the technology industry?

The free 4-week-long program will equip women software engineers and developers across Europe with the skills, resources and support they need to become leaders in the industry through public speaking and other community contributions.

If you are a professional IT practitioner (e.g. software engineer, data scientist, developer, etc.), bringing skills in one of the many Google technologies, looking to land more speaking opportunities, improve your public speaking skills and build your confidence and network, this month-long programme is for you.

You’ll have weekly workshops focussing on specific topics from public speaking to community contributions and have access to weekly 1:1 mentor sessions facilitated by Googlers and technical experts within our European developer community.

Beyond gaining new skills, you will also get to meet, connect, and network with other women developers who are on a similar journey and support you to find speaking opportunities through Women Developer Academy’s developer community network to showcase your newly developed presentations.

They also encourage a big interest in our Google Developer Experts program and support you on the way to become one after the Academy.

Let’s work together to bring diversity to the stage, because impact does not end there, that’s where it starts!
