The Global Partnership for Gender Equality in the Digital Age (the Partnership) is a multi-stakeholder initiative implemented by ITU and UN Women to promote awareness; build political commitment, leveraging knowledge, efforts, and resources for the greatest possible impact to achieve digital gender equality at both the global and national levels. It aims at creating an unstoppable global movement where women and girls are equal participants in the technology revolution.
Through gathering of data, sharing of knowledge, and direct action, the Partnership will focus on addressing Sustainable Development Goal 5b, "Enhance the use of enabling technology, in particular information and communications technology (ICTs), to promote the empowerment of women" through three areas of action:
- ACCESS – Achieve equal access to digital technologies;
- SKILLS – Empower women and girls with skills to become ICT creators;
- LEADERS – Promote women as ICT leaders and entrepreneurs.
