The Women in Tech project launched in Central Asia aims to introduce women to modern professions. Uzbekistan became the first country in the region to launch this project, UzA reports.

The launching ceremony was attended by the Advisor to the Minister of Digital Technologies of the Republic of Uzbekistan, Kamola Sobirova, representatives of IT Park Uzbekistan, and large companies in the country in information technology. Ayumi Moore Aoki, an international expert on women’s empowerment, participant in global events such as Pause Fest, TEDxIST, UfM Women Business Forum, GMI Summit and LEAP, founder of Women in Tech Global, became a special guest.

Ayumi Moore Aoki, on the list of the top 100 best female leaders in the world, said that Women in Tech Global currently has more than 200,000 members and aims to unite 5 million women and girls on STEAM by 2030.

As is known, ensuring gender equality in various spheres and empowering women are among the priority areas of development in Uzbekistan. The decisions taken in this regard imply an increase in their role in all spheres of society. But still, in Uzbekistan, women’s economic activity is lower than men’s.

The Women in Tech project in Uzbekistan will become an auxiliary link in the ongoing work to eliminate gender differences in technology.

It should be noted that Women in Tech Global supports women in achieving success in science and technology. The head office is in Paris, with branches in 48 countries worldwide.
