The fourth day was dedicated to visiting local companies. In addition, feedback and recommendations for possible improvements were collected from the beneficiaries throughout the event.
Rosana Seguí Sanmateu, Director General of trade, crafts and consumption of the Regional Ministry of Economy attended the event, as well as Tatiana Prades Castells, director of training of the FVMP, who gave a presentation on the FAP programme of training in primary care, tailored to the current Social Services. Moreover, there were interventions, among others, by Iban Garcia del Blanco, MEP, who spoke on artificial intelligence; Leticia Bendelac, researcher in gender issues at the Complutense University of Madrid; and Georgiana-Ioana Mozer-Schönborn, from the Directorate General for Employment of the European Commission.

The results and impact observed were:

-          Increased interest in the digital world: by taking part in the project and learning new skills, the participants grow more excited about the prospects the digital world has to offer. This may encourage them to pursue further education or technology-related careers, or simply make them feel more comfortable and confident using technology in their daily lives.

-          Improvement of digital skills: The participants increased their digital skills. They might gain, as a result, the ability to use technology more skillfully in both their personal and professional life.

-           Potential to create and implement future projects in a bigger consortium with other organizations or individuals interested in promoting digital skills among women.

-          Potential for community impact thanks to our communication material and also by sharing the results and skills learned during the activities.
