The rapid evolution of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) is clearly re-shaping our daily lives, enhancing productivity and transforming the economy. This Year’s World Telecommunication and Information Society Day (WTISD) will be celebrated under the theme of “Women and Girls in ICT”. Women constitute 52% of our population and stand as the pillars of strength for every family and community across the country. They are a major contributor to the national economy and playing their appreciable role in elevating the status of society.

In order to celebrate WTISD among local community members, Internet Society (ISOC) Islamabad Chapter (in-formation) is organizing a 2 hours open networking and collaboration session focusing on the theme of “Women and Girls in ICT”. The workshop session will primarily invite females associated with ICTs as students, teachers and professionals to express their thoughts and views while learning from each other’s experiences. The workshop will make an attempt to explore present challenges and opportunities for our ‘Women and Girls’ in the field of ICT. The workshop will offer the attendees an open environment to collaborate, network and celebrate this year’s WTISD dedicated to them.

The workshop will also host an expert panel of individuals to assist and answer queries / thoughts of the attendees.
