The Elevate AIDA program has set an ambitious target, aiming to train an impressive 300,000 women by the year 2025. During the meeting, Mayor Belmonte was joined by several key figures, including Connected Women CEO Agnes Gervacio, the Gender and Development Technical Working Group Head Janet Oviedo, and Aboitiz Foundation Program Manager Gero Torres.

This partnership signifies the unwavering commitment of Quezon City's local government to empower women by equipping them with the knowledge and skills required to excel in the tech industry. Such efforts play a pivotal role in personal and professional development, contributing to gender equality and diversity.

The collaboration between Quezon City and Connected Women, along with support from the Aboitiz Foundation, is a testament to the city's determination to foster female talent and ensure they have access to valuable resources in a rapidly evolving digital landscape.

As women continue to break barriers and shine in various fields, Elevate AIDA stands as a testament to Quezon City's commitment to bridging the gender gap and fostering a diverse and dynamic workforce for the future.
