Limited Capacity seats available

This session will focus on the role of women in ICT – both as creators and users of technology: Why is it important, what do you need to think about, and how do you do it? How can we as leaders in the field foster opportunity for women and girls? What are the most gendered challenges? How can we work to ensure an enabling environment for the next generation of girls? What are some current shining examples?   

Each presenter will share briefly about what their organization is doing to support women in ICT, then we will move to an open and participatory discussion. Please join us!
