Gender, digital transformation and artifical intelligence

The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) has the mandate to promote and accelerate sustainable industrial development in developing countries and economies in transition, and work towards improving living conditions in the world's poorest countries by drawing on its combined global resources and expertise. UNIDO’s mandate to promote inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID) relies on the advancement of gender equality and the empowerment of women. UNIDO addresses gender inequalities in industry and harnesses women’s full potential as economic agents of change and leaders thereby transforming economies and generating inclusive growth. Together with IfM Engage, Vestlandsforsking will develop a background paper to identify gaps, challenges and recommendations to advance a gender-sensitive digital transformation.
