May 28, 2013, Granada, Spain – Telecentre.org Foundation (TCF) is proud to announce the launch of its book, Outstanding Telecentre Women Managers: 100 Stories. The English Edition of the e-book, which was officially debuted at Spark13, the 4th Global Forum on Telecentres on May 28, 2013 in Granada, Spain, is a compilation of stories of the winners of the Global Search for 100 Outstanding Telecentre Women Managers conducted by TCF in 2011. The competition, which was organized in collaboration with TCF’s six regional telecentre network partners is a component of the Telecentre Women: Digital Literacy Campaign, a joint initiative by the International Telecommunication Union and Telecentre.org Foundation.
The 100 stories featured in the e-book chronicles the lives of women from over 30 countries around the world and presents a vivid snapshot of how these telecentre women came to rise to their current ranks, the struggles they encountered along the way, and the projects they are working on that are currently changing the world.
Tess Camba, Director of Operations for Telecentre.org Foundation said, “We’re extremely excited to be able to share this with you. We are grateful for all the partners who have contributed to the development of this book and most especially for the 100 women who have graciously allowed us to share their stories with the rest of the world.”
A second edition with translations of the English articles in multiple languages is set to be launched in the third quarter of 2013. The English Edition is currently available for download at the TCF website.
