Microsoft has partnered with the Telangana government's Women Entrepreneurs Hub (WE Hub) aimed at empowering women entrepreneurs and technologists in the region.

This partnership will focus on designing and execution of learning activities and tools that will enable women to innovate and encourage girls to pursue a career in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), Microsoft said on Friday.

The partnership will provide the WE Hub communities access to the infrastructure at Microsoft Garage - a platform for employee-led innovation that has a strong focus on encouraging women in STEM.

"Digital technology is changing the lives of Indians across every section of society. Working with global technology leaders such as Microsoft has enabled us to bring a platform meant for growth to the doorstep of women in Telangana," Deepthi Ravula, CEO, WE Hub, said in a statement.

This initiative will give women the opportunity to network and innovate alongside other women in STEM fields including transformational technologies like Cloud and AI, empowering them to become an active part of the technology ecosystem in India, Microsoft said.

"As our engagement with technology increases, we will require more talent with advanced skillsets that are very different from what exist now. Empowering women to actively be part of this transformation is integral to the skilling revolution taking root in India," said Reena Dayal Yadav, Director of Garage India, Microsoft.

"With the right technology infrastructure, institutional support, exposure and training, we can help them shape and build the India of tomorrow," Yadav said.
