Digi Girls Program for Women
The Digi-Girls Program for Women has grown out of the successes of our high school programs. We offer this model to targeted groups of women to improve their technical skills for specific purposes in a supportive environment.
ABS figures show that women are not accessing the Internet at nearly the same rate as men. Further, that women are operating small businesses at twice the rate of men and many are juggling families and a career. The number of women choosing a technology based career is falling.
Due to this, programs are now targeting home-based, micro and small business women operators to advise ways that technology can help build their business.
Unlike the high school programs, Digi-Girls for Women recognized the need for short sessions which can fit in around family responsibilities. In general, programs are half day sometimes requiring more than one session.
