Sarwat Rizvi has been a member of Women Techmakers since 2017, but this is her first year co-organizing events as a WTM Ambassador. Each year, Women Techmakers selects a theme for its events; 2023’s theme is “Dare to Be,” which really resonated with Sarwat.
“We talk about issues regarding women in tech,” she says. ” I realized that while discussing those problems is important, they need to be addressed and I’m glad we have started making an impact.” This March, Sarwat celebrated International Women’s Day in Islamabad, where she worked to ensure that all genders shared the spotlight and were being represented. Her goal was to create a space where everyone is welcomed with open arms.
