Rapid technological changes are impacting all areas of society and can drive economic growth and job creation; they can also enhance the interconnection of global markets. The Fourth Industrial Revolution seemed to promise young people unlimited opportunities for learning and working. But progress has thus far been uneven and far from equitable, especially for women and girls. As a result, girls are falling behind on acquiring the digital and social entrepreneurship skills needed to compete in the labour force or to start their own business.
This session will share good practices and solutions to close the double divide women and girls face worldwide: the gender gap and the digital gap. The objective is to mobilise stakeholders to reflect and act together towards a more sustainable and inclusive future.
