These include workshops for teachers to learn about Google for Education tools, establishing a public Google Reference School, providing training for 2,000 young people in skills needed for jobs through Google Career Certificates, and the possibility of working together to organize an Edutech event with Pakistan’s Ministry of Federal Education.

In March, Google restated its dedication to supporting women on International Women’s Day. They believe that by equipping women with the right skills and resources, the country can create a future with more equality, inclusion, and prosperity for everyone.

Google recognizes the vast potential here and is working to close these gaps through various programs designed to promote greater equality and empower women in the workforce. One of these initiatives is the Google Career Certificates program, which was launched in Pakistan in 2022.

At least half of the program scholarships were set aside specifically for women, with the goal of improving their access to economic opportunities and enabling them to pursue their goals. In 2023, the program granted 44,500 scholarships and has pledged to offer 45,000 new scholarships for 2024 to empower more learners.

Moreover, through the Google News Initiative (GNI) and in collaboration with local partners, Google has been training young journalists, offering chances for women to gain reporting experience, and tackling the accessibility of newsrooms.
