Digital transformation everywhere is moving quickly, and it can be hard to recognize and understand the barriers and benefits specific to women’s full digital inclusion. At the same time, the disruptive effects of digital technologies create opportunities to solve old problems in new ways. Bridging the digital gender divide can grow countries’ economies, expand job opportunities, and improve health and education outcomes.

OUR APPROACH

Women in Digital Transformation takes a holistic approach to identifying and addressing the specific barriers and opportunities for women’s full social and economic inclusion in digital transformation in each country. Our innovative assessment and diagnostic tool analyzes the digital gender divide through the lens of women’s life-cycle, from pre-school age through retirement. We assess barriers and opportunities for women as adopters and users of digital technologies, developers and designers, and leaders and champions of digital transformation. Our tool can be adapted to gather and analyze relevant data for specific economic sectors such as agriculture, energy and healthcare, as well as municipal governments. We work closely with government leaders and managers to understand their program objectives and take a whole-of-government approach to identify, design and implement context-specific, high-impact, data-driven solutions. We incorporate the Principles for Digital Development at every stage of the process.
