Google will support 1 million women entrepreneurs | India News


Google will support one million rural women entrepreneurs in India with training, mentoring and acceleration programs, the tech giant announced Monday during an event that also commemorated International Women’s Day. It will also train more than one lakh of women farmers in digital literacy.
The #WomenWill event recognized the disproportionate burden of the pandemic on women, and Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai affirmed the importance of providing opportunities for women. “Women are almost twice as likely to lose their jobs during the pandemic and an estimated 20 million girls are at risk of not going back to school. We have the opportunity to build a future that is more inclusive, and we must seize it, “he said.
