20 December 2017 - A Open Forum on Other in Geneva, Switzerland


Launched by ITU and UN Women in 2014, the EQUALS in Tech Awards (formerly known as the GEM-TECH Awards) celebrate initiatives that are closing the gender digital divide.

The panel session will be held to give the winners of the EQUALS in Tech Award the opportunity to share their experiences and commitment towards bridging the gender digital divide as a way of promoting the social and economic inclusion of girls and women.

Following from the EQUALS in Tech Awards Ceremony to be held on December 19, this session will give the winners the opportunity to highlight lessons learned and best practices looking forward, as well as challenges in running their projects.
