Real Access for Women Online - Connecting the next Billions

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Billions of people are not connected to the internet and half of them are women. These are women who are poor, from the rural areas, the indigenous women, those with disabilities. How do we connect them so that they can benefit from opportunities that connectivity offers people and to help in their empowerment? We will share a 10 Country Research findings for the research conducted in Africa with support from the Web Foundation with particular reference to Philippines and Uganda on "Closing the Gender Gap in ICT Data and Policy making: ICTs for Empowerment of Women and Girls". The session will encourage discussions on how we can further women's access to the
internet. This can spin off into further research trends in other countries, as well as possible programs / program collaboration in grassroots communities for women's inclusion
