About the Award: At Google, we believe a diversity of attributes, experiences, and perspectives are needed to build tools that can change the world. Everyone deserves the opportunity to pursue a career in computer science and technology, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, ability or military service. We understand that, for some folks who are underrepresented in computer science and technology, there are barriers to attending leading tech conferences. We are committed to breaking those down. As such, we’re excited to offer the Women Techmakers & Firebase Travel Grant for the Firebase Summit on 29th October 2018 in Prague, Czech Republic.
