DigitALL: Innovation and Technology for Gender Equality
The Avasant Foundation has expanded its impact in providing education, employment, and entrepreneurship opportunities in the digital economy for deserving youth and women globally. With plans to scale our footprint in 2023, using our resources to foster integrity, inclusion, and opportunity, the Foundation has focused on the use of technology to extend its reach.
On this International Women’s Day, the theme, DigitALL: Innovation and Technology for Gender Equality aligns with the core mission and vision of the Foundation which promotes technological change and education to achieve gender equality, and the empowerment of women and girls. Bringing women and other marginalized groups into technology results in more creative solutions and has greater potential for innovation that meet women’s needs and promote gender equality. Furthermore, advancements in digital technology offer immense opportunities to address humanitarian and development challenges, and to achieve the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
On March 8th, our esteemed panel held a high-level discussion on the unified, gender-responsive approach to innovation, technology, and digital education needed to achieve a sustainable future. The discussion brought together thought leaders, industry pioneers for equality, innovators, and activists for an hour of revolutionary conversations to provide guidance and solutions to enact real change.
