ASSOCHAM Southern region presents webinar on
“UPSKILLING Girls IN STEM FIELDS FOR TECHNOLOGY LED INCLUSIVE GROWTH”

10 February, 2021

About Event

 
While the government continues its efforts towards mitigating the rural-urban divide using technology by introducing technical upliftment & inclusion initiatives such as Digital India, Digi Gaon and other digital literacy initiatives, the core problem still remains under-addressed. The penetration of internet, computers and mobile phones is steadily growing but in terms of users who are consumers of digital solutions, not creators. Students, especially female, aren’t being able to embrace technology or pursue advanced careers in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) because of the lack of quality education necessary to ignite that spark of curiosity at the right age.
 
India, as of now, is progressing on a path which leads to growth but not necessarily sustainable growth. A sustainable future demand for technology-led inclusive growth.
 
To deliberate on Upskilling Girls in STEM and make them Future Ready with Technology led inclusive growth, ASSOCHAM Southern Region is planning for Webinar on “UPSKILLING Girls IN STEM FIELDS FOR TECHNOLOGY LED INCLUSIVE GROWTH” on 10th February 2021 from 11AM to 1:00PM.
