The IWD Conference brings together young women’s and girls from academia, government, and industry to share knowledge, experience and networking. The event's goal is to provide a secure cyberspace awareness platform for the young women’ and girls against the various form of cyber-hacking and understand the potential use of social media for productivity, self-enhancement, and economic social benefit.
