Women On Web (WoW) : Highlights of Session 1 | Google Drive


Venue : Virtual Height IT Solutions Pvt Ltd, Ahmedabad
Date & Time : December 12, 2-6 pm
Organized by : Utkarsh Foundation

#HelpWomenGetOnline : As mentioned in the Agenda, here are the highlights from the first session of Women On Web event.





The session was mainly aimed at briefing the participants about the whole initiative and teach them the basics of Google Drive along with the hands on session for the same.

The target audience was the women of age group 30-50 years.



I initiated the session by delivering a hangout talk, briefing them how the whole process was going to be, what are our goals, what are we going to achieve at the end of this project, what should people expect out of this whole initiative.


This was followed by the hands-on session on Google Drive by Dipali Vyas. Here's the link to her Presentation. Dipali explained the participants basic concepts of Google drive along with its different features.



The participants were very curious to know new technology, but at the same time it was a bit challenging for Dipali to introduce an altogether new concept to the participants, out of which, most of them were using internet for the first time ! But kudos to her, she could teach all of them at least the basic sessions, and the follow-up sessions after the workshop played a very important role in clarifying their doubts and difficulties.

Here's a small Piece of experience, wonderfully written by our Speaker, Dipali Vyas.





A big thanks to Rekha ma'am for helping with the co-ordination. Also, Dhruva and Jenny turned out to be a great support throughout the event.

Overall, it was a great start to the initiative. I will update soon on our next session.
