ABOUT CWIC

INTRODUCTION

One of the signature events of CANTO 2014 was the launch of the Caribbean Women in ICT Forum at a breakfast session on Tuesday August 12 at CANTO 2014 in the Bahamas. The brain child of Regenie Fraser,Secretary General of CANTO andJennifer Britton, Head of ICT at the CARICOM Secretariat,the session consisted of a panel of female
executives in ICT who addressed women in the industry on a variety of topics including:
1) Challenges and benefits for women entering the ICT profession
2) How to encourage more women and girls to enter the sector
3) Recognition and retention of women in ICT
4) The role of CWIC in the CARICOM Single ICT Space
5) Ideas for collaboration on a “joint project” for girls in ICT Day in April 2015
While the session targeted women in ICT, male supporters of women in ICT were alsoin attendance. One of those high profile supporter/attendees  was the Secretary General of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU),
Dr.  Hamadoun Toure
