Empowering Women in Tech – Bridging the Gap in Fiji’s Tech Space

Date: Friday,1 December 2023

Venue: Grand Pacific Hotel

About the event

The outsourcing industry in Fiji has played a pivotal role in the nation’s economic progress, generating employment opportunities and contributing to technological advancements. Despite the industry’s success, there exists a gender gap, with 68% of employees being females. However, these women have made significant strides in various tech fields, showcasing their prowess in software development, digital marketing, web design, and IT project management.

Four Pillars of Empowerment:

  1. Education: We believe in providing educational opportunities for women to excel in the tech domain. Through workshops, panel discussions, and round table discussions, we aim to empower women with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in the Fiji’s tech space.
  2. Business: Supporting women-led businesses is crucial for fostering economic growth and gender equality. Our event will highlight successful women entrepreneurs in the outsourcing sector and Fiji’s tech space, providing insights and inspiration for aspiring business leaders.
  3. Digital Inclusion: Ensuring that women have equal access to digital resources is vital. We will explore strategies to enhance digital inclusion, bridging the gap and creating a level playing field for women in technology.
  4. Advocacy: The event will be a platform for advocating gender equality in the tech industry. We will engage with leaders, policymakers, and development partners to promote policies that create a more inclusive environment for women in tech.

We invite businesses to join us in bridging the gender gap by becoming a sponsor and showing support to this incredible cause in the month of October – Pinktober – as we are reminded not only of the gender disparities that persist in technology but also of the incredible strength and resilience of women.
