In a collaborative effort to empower women and girls in the field of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), the Digital Innovation for Women Advancement (DIWA) gathered at Ateneo de Naga University on May 29, 2024. It aimed to unite women leaders from diverse sectors, underscoring the need for more women representation in the ICT industry.

The event was graced by Vice Mayor Hon. Cecilia Veluz-de Asis, DICT Undersecretary Atty. Jocelle Batapa-Sigue, and DICT 5 Regional Director Rachel Ann Grabador, all of whom shared a common advocacy of leveraging women’s roles in ICT and promoting gender equality.
