Huawei Thailand Held the First Women in Tech Roadshow

In honor of International Women in Engineering Day, Huawei organized a roadshow for “Women in Tech (WIT)”, showcasing remarkable female role models, influential women in leadership, tech talks, and an interactive exhibition highlighting cutting-edge technologies.

Moreover, the event proudly demonstrated Huawei’s commitment to fostering diversity and inclusivity. With the primary objective of igniting inspiration within the younger generation, particularly aspiring women, the roadshow aimed to encourage their participation in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) programs and careers.

This initiative contributes to the collective pursuit of an inclusive and sustainable future. Additionally, Huawei’s collaboration with UNESCO, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), and academic institutions signifies their ongoing efforts to empower a greater number of ICT (Information and Communication Technology) talents, both in Thailand and globally, to thrive in the digital era.

According to the latest Global Gender Gap Report 2023 by the World Economy Forum, STEM jobs are well remunerated and expected to grow in significance and scope in the future. However, women remain significantly underrepresented in the STEM workforce. While they make up almost half (49.3%) of total workforce in non-STEM occupations, they make up just 29.2% of STEM workers. Huawei hopes to contribute towards moving the needle, officially launching the Women in Tech initiative in 2020 under three core principles: Tech For Her, Tech With Her, Tech By Her. The initiative has continued to grow and has now been adopted in over 50 countries.

“NIA is glad to witness the first Women in Tech officially launched in Thailand today. In Thailand, digital talent, both female and male, is becoming an important driver of economic development and opportunities. And NIA is willing to work together with partners including Huawei to cultivate ecosystem for innovation entrepreneurs and digital talent and enable Thailand to successfully build a digital hub for ASEAN,” said Dr. Krithpaka Boonfueng, Executive Deputy Director (Innovation System), National Innovation Agency, Ministry of Science and Technology (NIA).

Mrs. Piyatida Itiravivongs, President of Huawei Cloud Thailand, said: “As a leading technology company, Huawei upholds our mission to ‘Grow in Thailand, Contribute to Thailand’ to enable an inclusive digital future. In 2023, Huawei will continue to drive digital talent cultivation through three key focus areas, namely Cloud Developer programs, digital power engineers, and digital inclusion such as Women in Tech.”
