Women of Georgia in Technology

In 2019, with the support of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in partnership with the Innovative Education Foundation, Geolab, and Universities of Batumi, Kutaisi, and Tbilisi, UN Women launched a free web programming and social media marketing training program and internship for women in western Georgia.

The purpose of the program was to provide professional training to women in the field of information technology, which would significantly improve their knowledge in digital sciences. This would help women find employment in modern professions and to empower them economically. 124 women registered to participate in the program. After intensive training, participants had the opportunity to start internships in various organizations. Private companies, non-governmental organizations, and public services participated in the internship program.

The platform „Women of Georgia“ and the UN Women created 8 success stories of 8 women involved in the program.
