Agenda : Women On Web initiative

Seeing the awesome response of the audience at WWW Day Celebration, I have planned an initiative on “Women On Web” along with “Utkarsh” Foundation.  


Utkarsh Charitable Trust is a registered non-profit organization, established to support the women who wish to meet their full potential in life, but need a helping hand. The mission to assist women in getting the education or training resources they need for career development. Rekha Adhwaryu is the founder of this organization.

The main motive behind organizing this event is, to help women get online and to impart them basic technology skills, which would in turn make their lives easier ! The target audience is women from the age group 30-50 years. All the sessions are going to be hands on workshops led by different potential speakers and to be supported by some enthusiastic volunteers. The main sessions would be followed by practice sessions for each topics, which would make the concepts more clear and clarify the doubts and difficulties of the attendees.


Here goes the agenda of the event -
