Technology company Huawei encourages women to play a more active role in science and technology during the recently concluded Huawei Women Developers (HWD) Summit in Guangzhou, China. Participants included women from different fields and at different career development stages who shared their technical knowledge, work experience, and personal stories.
HWD hopes to empower women developers to create world-changing apps and tools and become part of innovations in the industry by providing them with more resources, opportunities, and platforms for learning, communication, and self-expression.
According to Huawei, there are still many spaces and opportunities for women to develop themselves in science and technology. To eliminate the digital gender gap, Huawei has launched digital technology enablement programs for women in Argentina, Bangladesh, Kenya, Ireland, South Africa, and other countries or regions.
‘Tech Has No Gender’
Tang Wenjie, co-founder of Ladies Who Tech, participated in the topic Tech Has No Gender. She put forward her belief that the development of science and technology requires teams with gender diversity and more inclusiveness. Faced with existing gender stereotypes and strong prejudices, women need to be more courageous in designing and creating technological or digital products.
Liu Yi, the co-founder of QIchat, encouraged women in tech to innovate and promote the advancement of science and technology by sharing her own experiences in the affordable and universal education domain.
Huawei aims to encourage more women students to take part in technological work and realize their own values.
Chen Tianxin, a GIS graduate student in Nanjing University, shared her development experience in scientific research. As a newcomer to the technology industry, she called on more women students to devote themselves to technology to create infinite possibilities with their courage and enthusiasm.
In the future, HWD will be committed to empowering women to improve their professional skills and specify career plans by providing them with course training, technical innovation salons, and practice scenarios, encouraging more communication between women developers through various online and offline activities, and enabling them to share knowledge about technology and professional experience, exchange stories and achievements, and showcase women empowerment by providing them with a platform.
