Digital technologies have the potential to create opportunities for women to lead, participate in, and benefit from technology developments. However, without the right policy enablers, digital technologies can also reinforce gender stereotypes and deepen economic and social exclusion. Based on a review of more than 150 initiatives across five geographical regions, this report offers recommendations on the priorities and entry points to further advance gender equality and women empowerment in the digital transformation. Eight key areas of action are identified to tackle the gaps between genders in the use, knowledge, and development of digital technologies.
