Upcoming Event //

As the world struggles with the pandemic, women have been the most affected by the economic impacts arising.

As the world changes, one needs to look for new economic opportunities such as that which exists in the tech industry as well as increased digitalisation.

Women need upskilling and reskilling to fully seize these opportunities as:

  • There are low barriers to entry into the industry as it is more about skillsets and ability than academic qualifications.
  • Remote and flexible work opportunities are growing and this is well suited to stay at home women or those who have been retrenched as through these opportunities women can also increase their career and professional options.
  • Many small businesses are struggling with their digitalisation efforts and there exists opportunities to provide freelance services to these businesses.
  • Women entrepreneurs too can increase their revenues and business opportunities by digitizing their businesses.

 

Let’s hear from some of the stakeholders on what it takes to create such opportunities.
