In Pakistan’s Karachi, on March 8, 2023, this year, Google is putting on seven Women Techmakers (WTM) events across five locations in Pakistan to help and empower more than 1,550 female developers. Google’s WTM program aims to give women in technology visibility, a sense of community, and access to tools.

The seven events, which include rallies, workshops, networking opportunities, and conferences, will take place between March and May and offer training in a variety of entrepreneurship topics, such as leadership, technical skills, and how to get around particular obstacles faced by women in technology.

International Women’s Day, which falls on March 8, will be the day of the first gathering (IWD). This year’s IWD theme for WTM events is #DareToBe, where we promote women’s confidence and courage to dream large and take chances. We encourage everyone to consider all the ways they will “Dare To Be” in 2023, whether they are brave, tenacious, or inventive.

The activities will be hosted by regional WTM Ambassadors with assistance from Google. The WTM Ambassador program supports women in tech who are seeking to create impact and give back to their communities. As ambassadors, they will participate in one or more leadership events each quarter in order to interact with their communities.

Farhan S. Qureshi, Google Regional Director for Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka said: “These events, in collaboration with Women Techmakers (WTM) Ambassadors, don’t only recognize the accomplishments of women in tech, but will also encourage more women to join the fast-growing tech industry. Over the years, WTM and its ambassadors have organized many events that have helped women developers reach their true and full potential. That said, the program will promote diversity, equality, and inclusion in the tech sector, which is the primary mission of Google.” 

An attendee from last year’s program, Manahil Qureshi, recalled her experience at the WTM: “The speakers’ sessions were filled with power-packed talks on Education, Women’s Workforce, Community Building, and future prospects for women in tech in Pakistan. The speakers fired up the event with interactive discussions and some interesting Q&A sessions. The vibe of the event was so warm and positive.”

Our WTM activities this year expand on the encouraging outcomes from the WTM sessions we conducted in Pakistan last year, during which we taught more than 800 women developers. The events, which were conducted in conjunction with IWD celebrations, covered vital subjects like online safety, coding, and presentation skills.

The 2023 WTM meetings will begin on March 8, 2023, and last throughout Pakistan until April 29, 2023. For further information, please visit,
