STAFF REPORT LHR: Information Technology (IT) plays a key role


in governance as well as imparts synergic impacts on national economy.


IT knowledge is equally important for men as well as women. A pilot


project with the aim to create enabling conditions for women in IT


sector was launched by Sanjh Preet (SP) organization. The project is


funded by USAID Pakistan.


Speaking on the launching of the project, CEO SP, Abid Hussain Gill


said that despite the prominence of women in IT sector worldwide, they


were underrepresented in our country. He said that the project was


launched by keeping the stakeholders on board such as universities, IT


companies owners, women etc.


“The pilot project aims to provide 3-month internship to 120 women in


10 IT companies, and the organization will closely coordinate with the


companies to devise policies to improve the enabling conditions for


more women to join in order to boost the IT sector at national level,” he


added.
