Women in Digital Business (WIDB)

This is the information age. Digitization is key to business success. The Women in Digital Business Initiative empowers your business to make the most out of digital technologies.
The rise of the digital economy brings new opportunities for women entrepreneurs. Enterprises can reach their clients better through an authentic online presence. They can also be more efficient with the right use of technology. However, it is not always easy to develop and implement a digital transformation strategy.
The Women in Digital Business Initiative (WIDB) consists of a foundation programme with five modules teaching women entrepreneurs how to position themselves effectively in the digital economy. The foundation programme is complemented by optional learning paths for prior and further learning. Developed through a partnership between the ILO and Microsoft, the programme is taught through a combination of training sessions, self-guided eLearning and coaching. You will create a digitalization action plan applicable to your specific needs by the end of WIDB training.
This shall be issued by the International Training Centre of ILO (ITC-ILO) through WIDB upon successful completion of all the assignments. It should be done by the 17th of November 2023.
