Can the digital revolution increase agency, autonomy and freedom for women?
About this event
MicroLoan Foundation are hosting a panel of experts to discuss gender smart innovation and digital transformation. We are looking to engage our audience in an inspiring, informative and honest conversation in celebration of International Women’s Day.
Join our panel of gender experts for a conversation on digital gender equality and how the digital revolution can increase agency, autonomy and freedom for women in rural communities. We will explore deep-rooted gender biases, affordability, and the lack of trust and education for digital solutions that hinders digital access for women.
The event is free to attend but if you wish to make a suggested donation of $15, your money will provide financial literacy and business training for women living in poverty.
