TechCrunch 2.0: IT Awareness Workshop For Female College Students And Their Parents

 18-Oct-2019       09:00:00

 TSC Auditorium and IIT, University of Dhaka

The event was organised by IIT Software Engineers' Community(IITSEC), supported by ADB and in association with DUCSU.

Among the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), the 5th goal is Gender Equality. One of the targets to ensure Gender Equality is to enhance the use of enabling technology, in particular, information and communications technology, to promote the empowerment of women. If equal participation of male and female is not ensured, the gender gap created will increase the digital divide. As a result, we will face social and economic marginalization. To avoid this marginalization, women must be actively present at the IT sector.
