Partnerships in Learning for Cyber Safety

Partnerships remain at the heart of College work. This is well exemplified by our current project with UN Women which is working with two Pacific experts to development and deliver a course on Cyber Empowerment and Safety for Pacific Women, particularly in the face of COVID-19 and the strained economic environment.

Leading the design team is Pauline Soaki, a noted gender specialist, with deep experience of working on issues around women’s rights and well-being. Pauline was the former Director of the Women Development Division in the Solomon Islands, and has published on gender-based violence, peace-building, and women’s political participation in the Solomon Islands. She’s passionate about the pilot project, and excited about what it might achieve.
