Free workshops for women - opening up the world of social media in business

These workshops are funded by The Government Equalities Office, which means that the women of Oxfordshire can access these specialist learning opportunities for free, right across the county.  The County’s Broadband team are commissioning the workshops to be delivered by local trainers reflecting local needs.

Councillor Lorraine Lindsay-Gale, Member for Cultural and Community Services said: “I am delighted that our programme has been able to open up these chances to the women of Oxfordshire to develop their talents, create opportunities for career development and expand their businesses in the new world of Social Media.”

Workshops will be taking place in Abingdon, Ardlington, Banbury, Benson Bicester, Carterton, Cowley, Didcot and Witney from the 20th October to the February half term.  They will cover many aspects of social media from beginners in Facebook and Twitter, through specialist technical workshops such as in Google+.  There are business workshops on developing your business using digital marketing  and developing your own digital brand or your own website.

To join one of the Beginner or Introduction workshops, all you need is to be a woman, live in Oxfordshire, bring a laptop and have a willingness to learn.  The follow on workshops and Master Classes will need more background expertise, but each workshop has its own requirements, so do check them out.  They are all delivered in an interactive manner through the "bring your own devices" operated by delegates, with group discussion and exercises.

To find out more and to book your opportunity, go to the Better Broadband for Oxfordshire website http://www.betterbroadbandoxfordshire.org.uk/ and follow the links to Women and Broadband workshops.
