HUAWEI Women Developers

Huawei Women Developers program launched

To date, Huawei has successfully launched similar digital skill training programs for women in many countries

Huawei has launched a program designed to support and empower aspiring female developers. The Huawei Women Developers (HWD) program aims to encourage more women to join the technology industry by providing skill training and opportunities and platforms to develop their careers.

The Huawei Women Developers program is the newest initiative that Huawei has taken as part of its commitment to promoting gender equality. The program will provide participants with training on technological innovation and career development paths, along with opportunities to meet with experts in cutting-edge technologies from various fields, and to participate in hands-on scenario-based experiments and drills.

Huawei hopes to create a special community for women developers on the HUAWEI Developers platform, and organize a series of online and offline events.

Connect

Build a platform for women developers to exchange ideas and gain new inspirations.

Empower

Comprehensively empower women developers in both theory and practice, enabling them to quickly improve and develop new skills.

Grow

Help women developers obtain more development opportunities and realize their value through incentives and innovation support.

In a statement announcing the program, Huawei Senior Vice President Chen Lifang said:

“We believe that women will lead technological innovation.

We hope that the HUAWEI Women Developers program will help women better leverage their talents and unique value, and give them opportunities to demonstrate their leadership abilities.

This will help make our world a better place.”

Only around 8-11% of global software developers are estimated to be women.

With fields such as AI making workforce diversity more important than ever – to ensure all parts of society are represented and treated equally in potentially automated decisions about their lives – creating an environment to help more women to enter and succeed in STEM careers is vital.

Huawei says it offers female participants in its Shining-Star program special incentives to encourage innovation and entrepreneurship. Women who develop particularly outstanding projects are offered to be featured in future campaigns.

Lifang says:

“In the digital era, more opportunities and support must be given to women to ensure they have access to the education and training that they need to be fundamentally competitive in the digital economy.

Equipping women with these skills has proven to promote social integration and inclusive and diversified societies.”

Pallavi Malhotra, Director for ICT Academy Programme, Western Europe at Huawei added: 

“We believe that the future of the workplace will become increasingly flexible and virtual, but we also observe that large gaps still exist, including a gap in access to a quality network, a gap in digital skills as well as a gender gap.

By empowering women with the skills they need, we can fundamentally support women to look at careers in tech. By improving industry-academia engagement, we can increase knowledge sharing between businesses and academic institutions, create great content and curriculum that will help attract more women and more young people from diverse backgrounds into tech.”

The company also says that over 30 percent of the trainees who take part in its ICT training programs, like Seeds for the Future, are women.
