GREELEY, CO – March 12, 2018 – Aims Community College is hosting a networking event with the Google Developer Group and Women Techmakers of Northern Colorado on March 14 in celebration of International Women’s Day. Students, alumni and the community are invited to join Aims on March 14 from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Fireside Lounge in Ed Beaty Hall on the Greeley campus.

The March 14 event will be an opportunity to network, create new friendships, play games and enjoy light refreshments. It will be a celebration of the field of technology and acknowledgment of the amazing contributions of women participating in the technology field. 

Aims Associate Professor Jennifer Bailey is a lead organizer of the Google Developer Group and host of the event. After joining Aims in 2011 to teach Mobile Application development, she sought resources in the community to help her learn what the industry knows about technology. When Women Techmakers formed a few years later, Google and the GDG encouraged her to get involved as a woman who works in education and technology.
