WOMEN will develop a strong sense of identity and self-belief if they play a greater role in national development such as science and ICT.

Director of the US-based BrightPath Foundation, Stephanie Danclair spoke on the importance of women in technology at the Novotel Suva last week, which was hosted by the UN Women. "Do not be afraid of obstacles, rather pursue life-long learning and embrace life's challenges as stepping stones to developing character and strength," she said.

Ms Danclair inspired women to reach beyond their limitations and walk confidently into new roles such as science and technology. UN Women National Programme Specialist for Gender Climate Change Disaster and Risk Management Katalaine Duaibe emphasised the important role that ICT played in encouraging innovative and collaborative approaches to empower rural women and communities.
