Women in Engineering Award

Google strives toward one overarching mission: to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. With a user base in the millions, Google's point of distinction is anticipating needs not yet articulated by our global audience, then meeting them with innovative products and services that set new standards.
Therefore Google aspires to be an organization that reflects the globally diverse audience that our search engine and tools serve. We believe that in addition to hiring the best talent, the diversity of perspectives, ideas, and cultures leads to the creation of better products and services. This diversity of our employees and partners serves as the foundation for us to better serve our diverse customers and stakeholders all over the world.
As part of Google's ongoing commitment to encouraging women to excel in computing and technology, we are pleased to announce the 2010 Google India Women in Engineering Award, to recognize and reward deserving women students in Computer Science and related majors, and inspire them to become active participants and leaders in creating technology.
