In Pakistan, women are often discriminated in the professional world. No matter how educated and confident they are, there will be a point where a woman will be reminded of the fact that she’s a ‘woman’. However, things have changed drastically and that too, in Pakistan.
This one initiative in Pakistan called ‘FEMPROW’ which is supported by the Facebook Community Leadership Program is changing the game for all the Pakistani women out there. FEMPROW is an initiative to help empower women to grow professionally and economically.
Recently, FEMPROW held a 2-day content and social media marketing integrated workshop in which 7 deaf participants and women entrepreneurs from the deaf community were trained by the help of two trainers Adeeqa Nazir and Salman Yahya; in collaboration with Deaf Tawk.
This 2-day workshop could not have been possible without the mastermind, Nadia Patel Gangjee who’s a therapeutic counselor and marketer turned tech entrepreneur. She’s also a strong advocate of women’s economic empowerment and has led successful initiatives to increase financial and digital inclusion of women, in the entrepreneurial space.
However, the workshop’s main focus was to promote the idea of inclusivity in workplaces and businesses. The workshop also catered to businesses under the categories of Food, Home & living, Health & Hygiene, Fashion & Lifestyle, Events and Planning.
Here’s what FEMPROW has to offer – Get ready to be wowed!
