A significant milestone was reached in the partnership between Aboitiz Land, Aboitiz Foundation, and Connected Women as the Elevate AIDA program kicked off with a comprehensive two-day briefing for its beneficiaries. The briefing, held on May 31 for Barangay Calubcub 2 and on June 7 for Barangay Valle Cruz, marked an important step in empowering women and preparing them for a tech-empowered future.
Aboitiz Land’s commitment to sustainability, innovation, and gender equality is geared towards creating a better future for more Filipinos. By empowering women residing near its communities through digital skills training, the developer promotes gender equality, enhances their employment opportunities, and contributes to the overall socio-economic development of communities.
The Elevate AIDA program partnership between Aboitiz and Connected Women, which started as a small training initiative for 60 women in Toledo City, Cebu, has now expanded to include a community of 300 Connected Women with a vision to reach 300,000 women within three years. The program aims to equip women with the skills needed to embrace socially responsible online work and create a more inclusive future.
During the two-day briefing, the beneficiaries were immersed in what to expect for a transformative learning experience. They will be receiving comprehensive training on artificial intelligence (AI), data analytics, and other relevant technological skills that are becoming increasingly crucial in today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape. The sessions will be designed to provide the women with market-aligned skills that will open doors to long-term, flexible work, and livelihood opportunities.

It involves the combined efforts of various business units within the Aboitiz group, all sharing a deep-rooted commitment to empowering women and leveraging technology for positive change. Together, they strive to co-create a resilient and sustainable community, one tech-empowered woman at a time.
“By embracing the power of technology and empowering women, Aboitiz Land, Aboitiz Foundation, and Connected Women are paving the way for a society where women can build successful careers from their homes, earn decent wages, and actively contribute to the digital economy,” said Atty. Sta. Ana, Senior Assistant Vice President of Legal & Corporate Affairs for Aboitiz Land. The Elevate AIDA program represents a vital step in creating a more equitable future.

As the two-day briefing concluded, the beneficiaries of the Elevate AIDA program are prepared to embark on their journey armed with newfound knowledge, skills, and a sense of empowerment.
On July 7, 2023, a graduation ceremony at Seafront Residences in San Juan Batangas will be held to recognize the women who have completed and passed the training program.
