Comments Off on WOWEM: Rises

In 2004, the WOWEM Project envisioned a civil society that cared about how Information, Communication Technologies (ICTs) could be used to promote equity, entrepreneurship and sustainable development.  A way to gage the specific struggles of women and how the community could respond through tecnological collaboration, empowerment and support with practical experience and hence woman’s intuitiveness and exceptional wisdom.

It gives us great pleasure in viewing this video, take a look.

It started in 2004 with a challenge!  How do we 1) find out how women faired in the IT world, and 2) what supports are needed to develop any skills, networks or marketplace to excel.  A simple ‘fact finding’ initiative.

The WOWEM Impact

Over 60 organizations across the globe shared, supported and offer wisdom to the members, resulting in achieving the United Nations Civil Society Award for the World Summit Awards Program.  The recognition for the ‘best in e-content & Creativity’
