May 19 to 23: Women Empowerment in the Age of ICT

I just partnered with the University Center for Women's Studies of UP (UCWS-UP) for the conduct of their training workshop on "Women Empowerment in the Age of ICT".

This is part of the UCWS-UP ICT project called "Women and Gender Advocacy, Training, Education, and research in the Age of ICT (WgATER-ICT). This is an action plan output of a trainer's training on ICT in 207 with APEC Digital Opportunity Center as lead sponsor.

As the coordination for the said training was quite tight, I've decided to tap into the existing women members in the Club to contribute their time and effort for this training. The program outline where the club members participated are as follows:
