In many places across the globe, March is celebrated as Women’s History Month, and March 8th, specifically, marks the day known around the world as International Women’s Day. Here at Google, we’re excited to celebrate women from all backgrounds and are committed to increasing the number of women in the technology industry.
Google’s Women Techmakers community provides visibility, community, and resources for women in technology to drive participation and innovation in the field. This is achieved by hosting events, launching resources, and piloting new initiatives with communities and partners globally. By joining Women Techmakers, you’ll receive regular emails with access to resources, tools and opportunities from Google and Women Techmakers partnerships to support you in your career.
Google Cloud, in partnership with Women Techmakers, has created an opportunity to bridge the gaps in the credentialing space by offering a certification journey for Ambassadors of the Women Techmakers community. Participants will have the opportunity to take part in a free-of-charge, 6-week cohort learning journey, including: weekly 90-minute exam guide review sessions led by a technical mentor, peer-to-peer support in the form of an Online Community, and 12 months access to Google Cloud’s on-demand learning platform, Google Cloud Skills Boost. Upon completion of the coursework required in the learning journey, participants will receive a voucher for the Associate Cloud Engineer certification exam.
This program, and other similar offerings such as Cloud Career Jumpstart, and the learning journey for members transitioning out of the military, are just a few examples of the investment Google Cloud is making into the future of the technology workforce.
