The women empowering initiative, Women Scaling Heights, aims to develop knowledge base and skills of female entrepreneurs in Pakistan to facilitate the growth of their business through the use of technology. With the second lowest female economic representation of 22%, there is a dire need for initiatives that work towards developing skills of women entrepreneurs.
Women Scaling Heights aims to achieve this by conducting sessions and workshops that help women from all walks of life grow personally and professionally.
