UN Provides New Opportunities for Women 


Planning for the Future: Presentations and Workshop for Women on ICT

Association of Universities & Colleges Canada (AUCC) in a research partnership with the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) and Ardhi University (ARU) are proud to be hosting an Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Day event for young women. The event is being held at *insert venue* on June 26. The event will run from 10am-3pm and features presentations from two Ardhi Ph.D students then a workshop put on by interns from Canada for young women on how to use GPS/GIS.

ICT is the fastest growing industry today and more jobs are created in this industry than any other. The same prospects are for the future. ICT has been identified as the industry that will lead forward world economies, improve lives of families across the globe and make the planet a smaller, more accessible place. Women should take a more prominent role in this process.

This public engagement event is for women to learn more about what ICT has to offer in the field of urban planning.  This event will present current ongoing research from students at ARU that have been involved in mapping and GPS work related to flooding of informal settlements in Dar es Salaam. After lunch selected young women will have the opportunity to participate in a training session and workshop on GPS and GIS mapping. The event is being hosted in coordination with the UN Girls ICT portal, Making Africa Work, Women’s Fund Tanzania, and River Cross Tracking Limited.
