The digital age opens up new transformative opportunities for women which may enhance equal economic opportunities, foster the political empowerment and help to achieve greater gender equality. However, a wide digital gender divide exists in access to and use of digital technology and digital technology also has the potential to exacerbate existing gender inequalities. This event convenes a panel of experts to discuss policies and measures to promote the use of technology as a tool for women’s empowerment, to provide women and girls with equal access to digital skills and products, to build capacities of women and girls in digital skills and leadership, and to use of ICT to increase political participation and leadership.
