The IncludeHER project seeks to reduce the digital gender gap by empowering migrant women for digital competences, thus also enhancing their abilities to integrate in the labour market and as active citizens in society.

The IncludeHER final event, organised online by eucen on 24 May, was an opportunity to reflect on the importance of digital skills for students - and especially female students - with migrant background, but also to test the tools and resources developed as part of the project. It included the following sessions:

> Welcome and introduction to the IncludeHER project
> Keynote speech: 'Where they have to catch up: Digital skills of Immigrant students and Epistemic Violence' by Emmanuel ACQUAH, Associate Professor of Education and director of the International Master's Degree Programme in Teaching and Learning at Åbo Akademi University (FI)
