ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
"There is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women".
We live in the age of science and technology which serves as the basis of modern civilization, where the gender equality is one of the key components for healthy society and true development. Women are playing a bigger and proactive role in all spheres of life and leaving their footprints on issues of national importance.
Understanding the contribution of women is essential to bring positive impact on the advancements in field of science and technology. Thus, the main motivation of conducting this workshop, being organized by NASI, is to encourage women into mainstream science and development of technology. To extend its benefits to the state of Assam, we propose to organize “Sensitization Workshop on Technological Empowerment of Women” at Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati (IITG).
