World’s information giant, Google, on Tuesday trained members of the International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) on digital skill to enhance professionalism in the Law sector.
The training, which was organised under Growth Tribe Africa Initiative in partnership with Google, held at the Bar Centre in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State capital.
The Facilitator of the training, Mathew Ige, disclosed that the training would expose female lawyers to digital skills in order to enhance career growth, business opportunities in digital networking and promotion of socio-economic activities.
He described the training as an opportunity for FIDA members to sharpen their skills in social networking, marketing and how to advertise products via internet, while facilitating and showcasing all FIDA’s effort in its fight against Gender-Based Violence.
” We are in the era of digitalization, hence the need for FIDA to make use of digital skills in promoting its works in championing the fight for women.
“The training will also enable participants to learn how to protect an account, how to improve on the use of internet, how to manage data, web design and other online marketing activities,” Ige said.
One of the participants, Mrs Ebenezer Dupe, said the training would help her in her search for Law textbooks digitally, noting that it has also exposed her to some business opportunities other than Law.
The Secretary of the Association, Mrs Blessings Ajileye, appreciated the trainers for exposing members to digitalisation in disseminating information.
She added that the training would make it easy for FIDA to showcase and inform the people of Ekiti State what the Association stands for in its fighting for women’s rights and championing their cause.
