In keeping with this year’s priority theme, “Innovation and technological change, and education in the digital age for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls”, this event will be an intergenerational dialogue to highlight and discuss the need for women and girls to get into leadership positions in the technology, innovation, and education sectors.
As we advance into the digital age, it is critical that women and girls get on board and take up leadership and decision-making roles. With female leadership absent in the digital space, women and girls cannot control the parameters to favour their participation. Hence we find women and girls at the negative end of the digital era. We believe closing the gender digital gap should be a global priority. Without accelerated action in the digital space, progress towards gender equality will be painfully slow.
