I had the great honor of being awarded the Google Women Techmakers Scholarship through my involvement with women in technology, leadership and academic achievement. This scholarship comes with a 3-day retreat at Google’s headquarters in California, and this is the retreat I will tell you about in my article.
So I had the chance to fly from Montreal to San Francisco on August 12th. About 250 people were at the event. For the first time this year, Google’s CodeU program, with more than 200 people, was paired with the 53 scholars. The participating scholarships at retirement were Google Lime Scholarship for students with disabilities, Women Techmakers, Generation Google Scholarship and Google Student Veterans of America.
