The Ghana-India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT with the National Union of Ghana Students has organised a two-day ICT workshop for 100 women in Ghana's tertiary institutions.
The women who took part in the training were drawn from various institutions including the University of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, University of Education Winneba, University of Professional Studies and Ghana Institute of Journalism.
The workshop was aimed at equipping young Ghanaian women to effectively use ICTs particularly the Internet to advance their studies and careers. Training sessions included Blogging, Online safety, Presentations and Online Collaboration. In one of the sessions on Online Safety, the Director-General of AITI-KACE Dorothy Gordon advised participants to be wary of posting nude photos or information they consider private or confidential on the internet. Dorothy Gordon also admonished the participants to build soft skills, "pick up all skills as a student and prepare for the world of work."
