Empowering Women to be IT Professional and Entrepreneurs
Cutar is another initiative of Yarl IT Hub which was started with the idea of encouraging and supporting women getting in to technology and entrepreneurship.
We identified that promoting diversity starts from encouraging girls at school. Hence, right after the launch in 2018, the first event was a forum with ICT teachers from girls schools to identify the challenges and needs from their perspective. As the next step we conducted a workshop to encourage and inspire girls to code.
We also understand that it is very important to provide access to role models from the same environment to motivate the younger generations. Hence we are in the process of connecting
women who have braved and succeeded in the tech industry, as well as with successful entrepreneurs.
