What's it about?

In our digital world, it is critical to equip women with the skills they need to succeed in a changing job market.... The Women Going Digital course provides a platform for women, multipliers and NGOs to gain valuable digital skills and tools. The course includes 16 cross-cutting topics covering various aspects of digitalisation and digital transformation. From introducing the basics of digitalisation to exploring new technologies such as artificial intelligence and blockchain, this course offers a multi-faceted learning experience. Each topic has been carefully designed to address current and relevant issues of the digital age.

Participants have the flexibility to learn at their own pace and access course material from multiple devices. Each topic consists of engaging learning formats such as teaser videos, web-based training, podcasts, quizzes, and additional resources. Audio transcripts are provided for videos and podcasts to ensure accessibility.

On their learning journey, learners can earn badges for completed milestones. A total of four badges can be earned: Digital Adventurer, Digital Explorer, Digital Rising Star, and Digital Pro.
