Team L&M

In partnership with the Digital Empowerment Foundation, the High Commission of Canada has launched an initiative entitled World Wide Women – A Campaign on Women’s Digital Leadership.

The aim of the campaign is to train young women and girls from rural and marginalised communities in five Indian states, and areas of Nepal and Bhutan, to build their capacity in digital entrepreneurship, internet use and digital marketing, through a series of training workshops.

Canada’s Deputy High Commissioner Amanda Strohan launched the campaign along with Abhishek Singh, CEO, MyGov India.  Speaking at the launch, Strohan said,I am delighted to launch the World Wide Women campaign. Canada is committed to taking concrete action towards achieving digital equality and ensuring that women and girls have access and the necessary skills to use digital tools to participate in decision-making. This commitment is reflected in Canada’s role as the Chair of the Freedom Online Coalition in 2022.”

“Once we are able to train and empower women in digital technologies, we will be able to claim that we are a truly digitally empowered society. I hope the programme will start the process of creating 15 digital leaders who can provide leadership to the digital story of India,” said Singh.

 Trainees from rural India, Nepal and Bhutan also participated and shared their excitement for the program and their ambition to become future entrepreneurs.
