“We all deserve a seat at the table, we all have something important and unique, our own skills and perspectives are important to the development of our communities.”
This is the message from Data Platform MVP Mico Yuk and Developer Technologies MVP Diana Rodriguez as they each mentor women around the world about equality in tech. Here are their stories.
Today we are celebrating International Women’s Day by highlighting a series of 21 tech trailblazers who are making significant strides in the developer community.
Many of the women we interviewed are directly involved with our educational outreach and inclusivity programs like Google Developer Groups and Women Techmakers while others are Google Developers Experts or Googlers who are doing amazing work around the globe.
While all of the women featured here have unique stories around their journey into tech, a commonality among all of them is the dedication to making the developer community more inclusive for all future generations of women to come.
We are honored to celebrate #IWD2021 with them.
Today, Google Cloud celebrates International Women’s Day #IWD2021 and stands with those who #ChooseToChallenge inequality, call out bias, and question stereotypes. Together, we can forge an inclusive world that accurately reflects the people and communities who live in it.

It sounds like a good problem, but it is still a problem, says Diana Rodriguez, a US-based Venezuelan software developer who has worked in other health-tech open source projects: “Directing people’s efforts is going to be a huge challenge. Some people will work a lot and have a lot of knowledge, but this is very complex.” A sharp goal and a sensible division of labour are crucial: “Not everyone has the same skills, so people should do what they are good at.”'
