Nominations Open for International Equals in Tech Awards: Recognizing ICT Initiatives Empowering Women and Girls

Reblogged from Funds for NGOs

Deadline: 15 September 2017

Nominations are now being accepted for international ‘Equals in Tech’ Awards recognizing ICT initiatives empowering women and girls. The awards promote and support gender equality in the ICT field.

The “Equals in Tech” Awards (formerly the GEM-TECH Awards) is an annual initiative designed to promote gender equality and mainstreaming in technology. The awards are now part of Equals, an ITU and UN Women global partnership to achieve gender equality in the digital age. In addition to supporting gender equality in the ICT field and advancing the role of women as ICT decision-makers, the awards also showcase how ICTs can be used to dramatically improve social, political and economic outcomes for women and girls.

Outstanding initiatives that use the power of information and communication technologies (ICTs) to empower women and girls are invited to submit nominations for the prestigious “Equals in Tech” Awards. Nominations are being accepted through 15 September 2017, with submissions encouraged from around the globe.
