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.

Helping women around the world build skills to grow and succeed

The program has been expanding fast, and, this year, we’re pleased to share that we’ve have reached more than 36.8 million women globally.

Through online and in-person trainings adapted for each country, we help women use technology to build professional skills, foster community and make valuable business connections.

This International Women’s Day, we will be hosting special events to inspire more women in 17 countries across Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, Europe, and Southeast Asia. Each country will offer free trainings and workshops to help women develop key skills of tomorrow, so they will stay digitally-savvy, lead confidently, hustle bravely, and enjoy work-life balance.
