Give your life a direction – Apply Now! Herself-Cohort4

After conducting 3 cycles, graduating 120 women, forming multiple local and international partnerships, and taking expert trainers on board, Herself is all set to take its vision of making women self-sustainable forward by launching a new and improved cycle this October.

Herself is Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB)’s women empowerment initiative which began in 2016. Since its inception, Herself has worked to build a developing mindset of Pakistani women to become independent and contribute in the economy. Many women like Seema Aziz, Founder SeFam and Bareeze, Masarrat Misbah, Founder Depilex SmileAgain Foundation and Selina Rashid, Founder Lotus PR have endorsed the initiative by appearing in several events hosted by Herself. The project has hosted numerous inspirational sessions, workshops, trainings, panel talks and a national level Women Convention called the Herself Women Convention (HWC).

Herself is also the first initiative to form a collaboration with Facebook’s women empowerment initiative #SheMeansBusiness to highlight Pakistani women on a global platform and provide them training on running businesses using Facebook.

After becoming a part of Herself’s next cohort, you will get 20+ trainings on personal development and grooming, technical skills, entrepreneurial and relevant business skills, all by professional experts. Alongside the trainings, you will have access to mentoring from an experienced team not only during the program but also in future whenever you need guidance. You will be introduced to real world entrepreneurial atmosphere and will get access to Plan9’s entrepreneurs and TechHub Connect’s freelancers whom you’ll be able to connect with. The best part, all of this is totally free of cost!

Here are some of the trainings being offered:

• Personal Development
• Brand perception
• Marketing
• Running businesses using Facebook and Instagram
• CV Building & interviewing
• Photography
• Web Development
• Finance & Sales
• Business Development
• Pitching and presentation skills

If your application is accepted, you will be called for an interview in which the selection team will judge you based on your idea, passion and vision. The cycle is expected to begin by the end of October and will span over a period of 1-2 months.
