The Asia Pacific Women's Electronic Network Training (WENT) began as an annual regional ICT training workshop in Seoul, Korea in 1999 to train key women’s organisations in the effective use of Internet-based communication tools in exchanging and disseminating information on the Beijing Platform for Action (BPFA) Review Process in Asia, and to enhance their overall ability to utilise new ICTs for ongoing national development programmes. Since then, WENT has held diverse, specialized regional and national trainings in the Asia-Pacific region.
WENT conducted the GEM evaluation to inform future planning of the training programme. Their evaluation focused on how WENT satisfied the ICT needs of women and their organisations, specifically if it was able to increase the capacity of women information and communication providers in making decisions on using ICT within their organisations. One of the methodologies used in their evaluation was the review of testimonials collected from the applicants of the WENT Award. The WENT Awards were opened to all regional and national WENT graduates, and presented a novel way of gathering qualitative data. The WENT-GEM Framework was used as a guide in designing the Awards.Read more
