Women in Tech Webinar

Even though the speakers expressed their precious views making this event a success, we faced several technical difficulties throughout the session. Moreover, spamming has increased in Zoom and we faced Zoombombing in this webinar.


With the increase in spamming in different webinars, its a high time that everyone should be aware and adopt possible security measures.

Highlights from Women in Tech Webinar.

Dolma Sherpa

Dolma Sherpa, Coordinator at LBEF says that she supports women and we everyone should take challenges as opportunities for women in the tech industry and address the works that need to be done. She suggested to the young girls to have self-confidence and move forward with clear mindsets and goals.

She reflected on how the participation of girls was very less about 15-20% in the ICT Sector. When asked for the solution for the improvement of the involvement of girls, she suggested that the girls should be provided a base of programming and technology from the very school level. They should be provided with scholarships, workshops, and seminars to empower.

Sheela kansakar Karkee

Sheela Kansakar Karkee, Central Executive Member at CAN Federation mentioned that there are only 7 women(out of 43 members) in present executive committee of CAN Federation.

She says that family support plays an important role for girls in ICT sector. She hints towards the role of schools/colleges and CAN federation to empower women to become a member.

To overcome this challenge as an opportunity she suggested the provision of loan facility and scholarships in school fees. Further, she added about the job placement on a priority basis.

Saru Dhakal

Saru Dhakal is Vice President at Society of Economic Journalists Nepal. She being a journalists feels that the importance of family support is very crucial especially in this field.

Every sector is realizing the importance of ICT and adopting modern technology to sustain their businesses. Furthermore, the shifts in the ideology of people are drifting away from physical essence because of technology.

Sarita Neupane

Like Mrs. Dolma says she also believes that girls should be empowered from the ground level from schools and develop leadership qualities in them. She believes that the solution lies in the root itself.

“Education sector is the best sector for women who want to balance their family and work,” Thus, I believe that participating in academic activities is the way to start a career in ICT. Male support is equally important to support and empower women in this field.

Nani Maya Shakya

Nani Maya Shakya being the Central Committee Member at CFAN, she suggests to  strengthen and upgrade the computer science course for the secondary level.

I think the school-level education regarding technical knowledge needs more attention to empower the women in remote areas.
