Development Organizations and Civil Society

To achieve the Sustainable Development Goals for women’s equality, development organizations need to move past fragmented, siloed approaches to addressing gender disparities across economic and social outcomes. The COVID-19 pandemic has made evident that digital inclusion is critical for sustainable, meaningful development impact. No program, project or activity is complete without a significant women and digital component.

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 across the stakeholder community to identify, design and implement context-specific, high-impact, data-driven solutions to bridging the digital gender divide. We incorporate the Principles for Digital Development at every stage of the process.
