Launch of Womenwill by GBG Sarawak

Description

We're kicking off the very 1st Womenwill by GBG Sarawak on International Women's Day! Womenwill is an initiative by Google to address gender gaps in economic opportunity and to bring about positive change and impact for women in the local communities’ around the world.


It is Womenwill’s mission to make a difference by erasing the gender gaps in digital literacy, economic participation, labor force participation, wage and leadership. The workshops and up-skilling programs raise awareness about gender inequality, connect women with one another and to the information and tools they need. By helping women advocate for themselves, Womenwill hopes to help advance women with their careers, education, develop business skills, and gain social autonomy.


The workshop is FREE and open to all women entrepreneurs and business owners. Register for the course today and forward the event on to colleagues, other female friends and family members in your community who might like to come along.
