Women in Tech Webinar Conducted Successfully



Series of the webinars are being conducted in these recent days regarding Women in Tech, Involvement of Women in Tech Industry, and various others like the experiences and challenges of women in the ICT sector.

The ICT sector is evolving day by day along with the more involvement of women in this industry. This diverse industry needs equal participation of males and females.

So, with this realization of the importance of women in ICT, ICTFrame hosted a webinar on Women in Tech Career Challenges and Opportunities.

The panels of Speakers were different women involved in various ICT sectors;

  • Sheela Kansakar Karkee, Central Executive Member at CAN Federation
  • Saru Dhakal, Vice President at Society of Economic Journalists Nepal
  • Nani Maya Shakya, Central Committee Member at CFAN
  • Dolma Sherpa, Coordinator at LBEF
  • Sarita Neupane, Program Coordinator at Padmashree Int’l College

This program was moderated by Co-founder/Chief Editor of ICT Frame, Mrs. Mina Aryal.

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.

Saru Dhakal

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.

Sarita Neupane

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.

KU HackFest 2022 envisions bringing creative minds together to collaboratively create something that can spark a change in the future of technology. It is the best platform to showcase one’s coding skills, build impactful technological solutions and also win amazing gifts, prizes, swags, and cash rewards. Participants will gain tremendous skills and experiences in new technology, teamwork, and brainstorming solution-oriented innovative concepts along with proper mentorship and guidance.

2. What is the procedure for participants?  

First of all, you have to register for the event. The registration process is super easy! We have partnered with Devfolio, which is the one-stop platform you’ll use throughout the hackathon, from registration up until the project submission. If you already have a team, make sure you and each of your team members apply. 

Once registered, each team will have 36 hours to prepare a project relevant to at least one track in our Hackfest. Participants must build something that portrays their idea in the form of a Minimum Viable Product. The product built must communicate clearly the vision of the team and it must be relevant to at least one primary track. All submissions are to be made within the given deadline on the day of the Hackfest. Participants must also make and submit a short demonstration video of their project. The maximum length allowed for this video is 3 minutes.

In between the event, if participants encounter a challenge that they aren’t able to solve, they can take help from mentors through an ask-mentor ticket as well.

3. Do you have any messages to your sponsors? Why should this event be sponsored?  

We are a group of young enthusiasts organising a huge event on a global scale. For this, we need a lot of support in various forms, which we are seeking from the sponsors.

Being able to work on challenges, explore creative outlets, collaborate with a community, take networking, learn new skills, meet great people and win cash prizes and swags are a few things that this hackfest helps you achieve. Young aspiring technology enthusiasts would learn a lot of things that could help them till the end of their journey in tech. People sharing similar interests get to connect through this event and the networking gets strong.
