This year marked a milestone in efforts of bridging the gender gap in AI. iTrain Asia, with strong support from Microsoft, launched Microsoft Azure Women in AI Program in Malaysia, Vietnam, South Korea, Singapore, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, The Philippines and Thailand.
Microsoft Azure Women in AI program commenced on 20th March, 2021 and since then iTrain Asia has trained more than 200 women with fundamental knowledge in Artificial Intelligence with an all-rounded AI-900 Certification training.
To show our appreciation towards women who showed dynamism in exploring the thrilling world of AI, a digital tree will be planted on their behalf via the EcoMatcher platform.
With this initiative, certified trainees are able to contribute to a more sustainable world and help fight the current climate crisis, while tackling the gender gap in the field of AI.
How does it work?
Upon completion of the Women in AI Program and receiving Microsoft AI 900 Certification, a digital tree is mapped to an actual tree that is planted in various parts of the world to re-develop the world’s forests.
Certified trainees can take pride in knowing that they have contributed to environmental conservation. A unique digital code will be provided to them to view the actual location of their tree within our Azure Developer Community Forest.
Keep track of the precise location of the tree planted, the farmer who is taking care of it, and much more. Digital tree owners can also easily share the tree experience on social media, amplifying the tree initiative.
