To mark International Women’s Day, Huawei has launched the Huawei Women Developers (HWD) program that seeks to empower women to create applications and tools that will help to “change the world”. HWD is available to any women developers from around the world and it'll offer participants with opportunities and platforms for skill training and career development.
Commenting on the program, Huawei Senior Vice President Chen Lifang said:
“We believe that women will lead technological innovation. We hope that the HUAWEI Women Developers program will help women better leverage their talents and unique value, and give them opportunities to demonstrate their leadership abilities. This will help make our world a better place.”
The Chinese firm said that its latest initiative was started due to its commitment to promoting gender equality and joins another program called Shining-Star which offers women special incentives that encourage innovation and entrepreneurship.
Under HWD, participants are entitled to technological innovation and career development paths training. It also offers women the chance to meet experts in new technologies across various fields and the option to participate in “hands-on scenario-based experiments and drills.”
