Google’s womenwill programme-launch in Sri Lanka
Google started Womenwill as a global initiative to help make a difference in bridging gender gaps and empowering women worldwide, by focusing their resources, time and technology to erase these gaps.
Google’s aim is to support and develop programs so women in every market can connect to the information they need and the tools to make the most of it – to help them learn, succeed, and be heard. There are four program areas where we work to erase gender gaps, based on
Google’s mission and where we feel the opportunity for us to have an impact is most significant is Digital literacy, Entrepreneurship, Inclusive Workplace, Leadership.
Womenwill is to create economic opportunity for women everywhere, so that they can grow and succeed. Helping women make the most of technology to build skills, get inspired, and connect with each other through trainings, events and advocacy, we aim to drive conversations promoting gender equality to benefit everyone. This enables women worldwide to connect with likeminds and be a part of a global Google community.
The official Womenwill Sri Lanka Launch Event will take place on 7th April at MAS Innovation Centre, Colombo 02 from 9am onwards. This is open to women from all industries and sectors. If you are a working woman or woman entrepreneur, you can attend this free event via registration. Log onto GBG Colombo Facebook page for the registration and more information. – Google
