If you’re passionate about supporting women in tech, you will thrive at the tech meetups and events coming up this month as the Barcelona tech community gears up for the celebration of International Women’s Day. From casual meetups to a grandiose conference, women will definitely have a voice this month! But you don’t have to be an activist for gender diversity to enjoy this month’s tech events in Barcelona. If venture capital, the use of AI digital marketing, or blockchain is more up your alley, you won’t be disappointed. Have fun, and see you there!
- Wed, 7 March 7pm-9pm @ ThoughtWorks Barcelona (Carrer Roc Boronat 117, 8ª Planta – Edifici MediaTIC)
Come celebrate International Women’s Day at ThoughtWorks! We see this day as a perfect occasion for accelerating gender parity within the tech industry. This will be a a casual evening to meet women who love their lives in tech. Meet developers, designers, recruiters, product managers and more! It doesn’t matter if you do not have a technical background, we love students of all disciplines or people switching into tech careers — all you need is an interest in technology and a passion for learning. The event is for everyone: if you’re a man, feel free to join and bring a girl with you!

Women Techmakers is an initiative leaded by Google with the goal to promote and give visibility to women in tech. With the occasion of the International Women’s Day, in March and April, communities from all around the world are organizing special events. The purpose is raising the confidence and visibility of women and mitigate the unbalance that we find in the technology sector. Everyone is invited and more than welcome to participate, but what is special about these events is that all speakers are women. In our 3rd edition we will offer a whole day conference. Starting from 9am to 6:30pm with two tracks: one in spanish and one in english. We will enjoy very interesting talks, a workshop and a pair of rounded tables and all of that presented by well-known speakers from our community. Register here.
