At Google, we believe that increasing diversity within the technology industry leads to greater innovation. Within India, we have many incredible women in technology, but they arent always visible.Thats why Google India has partnered with the Women Techmakers team to produce a public speaking workshop.
Participants will go through a 2-day speaker training with Speechless from San Francisco. This includes preparing a talk on a topic of their choice, getting 1:1 feedback, and will culminate a month later with participants being recorded in the Google Developer Studio at Google Bangalore (dont worry, its not live). Once theyve completed the training participants will know how to address an audience, craft a story and presentation, and present on-camera. Additionally, with assistance from Google mentors, all participants will develop their personal YouTube channel and social media presence, and well equip everyone with on-going support, training, and materials.
