Huawei has officially launched its 'HUAWEI Women Developers (HWD)' programme aimed to empower women developers to create applications and tools that can change the world.

The programme has been intended to encourage more women to join in technological innovation by providing participants with more opportunities and platforms for career development and skill training, said a press release. 

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."

Huawei has taken the programme as part of its commitment to promoting gender equality.

The programme 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 unique community for women developers on the HUAWEI Developers platform and organise a series of online and offline events.

Through its existing Shining-Star programme, Huawei also offers women developers’ special incentives to encourage innovation and entrepreneurship.

The HUAWEI Women Developers program is now open to women developers from around the world.
