International Women’s Day 2020
In 2014, Google committed to close the gender gap globally through Women Will, a Grow with Google initiative first launched in India and Japan to help women be digitally literate, and support and grow their businesses and communities. Since then, we’ve scaled to 48 countries as more women grow to pave the road towards gender equality.
We’ve come a long way, but our journey is far from over. To celebrate our progress and achievements, we’re excited to expand Women Will into 7 new countries in Europe this year to empower more women across generations.Learn more
