Gogle created the Growth with Google for Women STEM initiative (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). This three-month program aims to provide engineering training to more than 100 women engineers to help them succeed in the rapidly growing field of cloud technology.
The company released a statement stating that it is in line with its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
The company explains that Grows with Google for Women in STEM will combine weekly virtual sessions about soft skills and cloud topics. It also reveals that attendees will take an online course that will lead to Associate Cloud Engineer.

According to the Labor Observatory data, only 19.5% are expected to work in engineering fields in Mexico in 2020, which is a drop of 9%.
