Women going digital: Empowerment of the digital skills of unemployed women

Stage : On Going

The program “Women Going Digital”  is being implemented on a pilot basis for the period May – September 2020, with the support and funding of the Latsis Foundation. The program was designed and implemented by the Diotima Center, with long experience in women’s empowerment, and Social Hacker Academy , specializing in technological education.

  • Strengthening the digital skills of unemployed women
  • Upgrade their professional profile
  • Facilitating their access to the (digital) labor market
  • Raising awareness of low representation of women in ICT and taking action to converge on the gender digital divide
