As part of its mission to upskill and create livelihood opportunities for women, Google’s Digiskarteng Pinay is holding a free online training workshop for Filipina content creators based in the country.
To be streamed live on the YouTube channel of Google Philippines, the event will take place on Aug. 11, 2022, at 3 p.m. and can be accessed by the public at no cost. The workshop is designed for Filipina creators currently based in the Philippines with at least 1,000 subscribers and must register here to attend the event. The first 100 to sign up will receive swags and training kits from YouTube.
“Since we launched Digiskarteng Pinay in 2019, we’ve seen how Filipinas have used YouTube to upskill themselves and provide livelihood for their families,” said Bernadette Nacario, country director, Google Philippines. “YouTube content creators play a critical role in the success of Digiskarteng Pinay and through the training workshop, we hope that we can further equip them with the knowledge and tools so they can further thrive on the platform. The more women content creators we support, the more Filipinas can benefit from the best of YouTube.”
The workshop will feature best practices and knowledge sharing from YouTube creators Joyce Pring, Team Lyqa, Team Tarah, and Vern and Verniece Enciso who will discuss YouTube growth strategies, production techniques, alternative monetizations, and building one’s YouTube business among others.
The Digiskarteng Pinay program aims to provide a destination for women to learn various skills along the lines of beauty and fashion, arts and crafts, family nutrition, technical skills, financial literacy, STEM, coding skills, and mindset skills among others. YouTube creators help fuel the content of the Digiskarteng Pinay playlist.
