An Evening with Google
Date: Held on Saturday 21st March, 2016
SheSharp was joined by some Googlers from the Sydney office.
About 100 attendees joined SheSharp and Google team from Sydney for an evening at GridAKL. The first session addressed the issue of unconscious bias with Google sharing their training and knowledge around this area. This proved to be a great insight into how one of the biggest tech companies in the world is addressing the issue of diversity.
After a short break of pizza and networking the google team jumped into the second session which was a more up close and personal. Each of the Googlers shared how they ended up working for Google, what their roles were, the office and culture.
During the evening students attending were highly encouraged to apply for Google internships and scholarships such as The Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship: Asia Pacific for university students and the Google Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship for First Years for high school students in their last year of study.
