Intel Educates Nigerian Women Entrepreneurs on Digital Literacy

As part of its efforts to improve the quality of lives through extensive use of digital technology, global technology company, Intel Corporation Nigeria has collaborated with the African Women Entrepreneurship programme AWEP for the delivery of digital literacy training women entrepreneurs. Intel will conduct the training on a train-the-trainer basis. Corporate Affairs Manager of Intel West Africa, Osagie Ogunbor said the initiative would enhance the ability of the women to run more efficient businesses. 
The training known as Intel EASY STEPS is part of the corporation’s educational content for which the chip-making company has become reputable across the world. Ogunbor noted that the training which is being provided free of charge is also part of Intel’s “women friendly” corporate social responsibility initiatives.
He explained that digital literacy was pivotal to the improvement of the quality of lives of any individual in today’s contemporary world and that Intel was committed to partnering with like-minded organisations to improve digital literacy the world over.
According to Ogunbor, “you cannot be effective and efficient in the running of any enterprise without digital literacy. This has become a necessity in this digital age and we are proud to lead in global efforts at digital literacy. 
On her part, the President of AWEP Nigeria Yemisi Iranloye stated that the organisation was delighted that Intel was providing the free training for its members and promised that those who receive the training will in turn ensure that they rain others. 
Iranloye said “despite the large number of women running very small informal businesses, a number of them are unable to expand the scope and profile of their businesses because they are unable to take advantage of the opportunities that abound in the digital world,” she said urged women to embrace online marketing which is a cost effective way of reaching the entire world via the internet. 
The AWEP boss in Nigeria also called on other organisations to emulate Intel’s consistent efforts to address issues of women and girls empowerment as well as its trademark Education programmes across the world. The training was also attended by AWEP representatives from Ghana, Zambia and Cameroon. 
 AWEP is an initiative launched by the U.S. Department of State in July 2010. It identifies and builds networks of women entrepreneurs across sub-Saharan Africa who are poised to transform their societies by owning, running, and operating small and medium scale businesses, and by becoming voices for social advocacy in their communities. 
AWEP is a strategic global partner of Intel Corporation.
