She said, "Digital technology is an increasingly important tool for movement building across geographical locations, allowing organizations and networks to exchange information rapidly. It also creates opportunities for women from all sectors." Science Katta chairperson Sharmila Oswal will address the workshop, she informed. In this workshop, Ms Oswal will inform the masses on the uses of the digital technology, specially the BHIM App and other central government schemes which are based on the digital technology, Dr Kashalkar said. "With the digital technology bringing in revolutionary change the world over, rapid transformations have taken place in the global scenario.

The workshop will be held to mark completion of 10 years of the Sharda Shakti, Dr Kashalkar added. While, Dr Leena Bavadekar, director of the organisation, said, "We will support efforts that focus on the production of new technology or adapting technology to women’s and girls’ contexts.
