Google has committed to train 20 000 women in ICT and entrepreneurship by the end of this year, as part of its Women Will training tour. Women Will is a global initiative aimed at creating economic opportunities for women in various parts of the globe by equipping them with digital literacy, entrepreneurship, workplace readiness, and leadership skills.
The training tour aims to initially train 5 000 women in 20 cities across Africa in March and April.
A further 15 000 women will be trained through community-driven training initiatives led by Women Will chapters across the continent, according to a statement.
“On International Women’s Day in 2019, Google announced the launch of Women Will, Google’s initiative to create opportunities for women, in Africa under the Grow with Google umbrella,” says Google SA head of marketing, Asha Patel.
“Since then, we have reached more than 10 000 women across eight countries and 26 communities. With 26 chapters across Africa, Women Will has helped create access to networks, skills and opportunities for women across the continent.”
