International Women and Girls in ICT Day

The International Women and Girls in ICT Day draws attention to the significant problem of a widening gender digital divide. Despite progress, women and girls worldwide are more likely to face barriers in accessing and using digital technologies than men. As a result, women are more likely to be deprived of economic opportunities, leading to social marginalization. Especially new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence present a major risk of exacerbating existing inequalities. That’s why the Connected Africa Summit is dedicating its entire program at April 25 to closing the gender digital divide and fostering leadership opportunities for women and girls in ICT. Leaders from Africa and TeamEurope engage in inspiring sessions.

The motto is crystal clear: we must empower women and we must learn to live with empowered women!
