About the NOW4WRC23 launch

The launch of the Network of Women for WRC-23 fulfils one of our commitments to implement the concrete actions in the WRC-19 Gender Declaration, which seeks to promote gender equality, equity and parity within the ITU Radiocommunication Sector. 

About the NOW4WRC Mentoring Programme

Inspired by the We Lead initiative, NOW4WRC aims to increase the number of women participating in and taking on leading roles, such as committee chairs and conference chairs, in the technical conferences of ITU’s Radiocommunication Sector.  A key component of the initiative is mentoring.

3 main objectives of the NOW4WRC mentoring programme are:

  • to strive for gender balance among delegates; 
  • to prepare women delegates in key roles for the upcoming World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-23); 
  • to nurture the ITU community of women in terms of contributions to the crucial conference and the field of radiocommunications in general.
