Gender lens innovation – Building inclusive ecosystems | Webinar

Description: African Digital Innovation ecosystems are key drivers for social and economic development in Africa. However, the Digital Gender Gap – the under-representation and lack of access to opportunities for women and girls within the digital ecosystem, remains a challenge that the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated. While African Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH) play a crucial role in addressing the gender gap, many lack the tools and resources to create system-level change. The main objective of this webinar is to equip DIH leaders with gender-lens innovation tools and methods to build programs that contribute to promoting gender inclusion within their ecosystems.  

Topics to be discussed:

  • Introduction to System-thinking and gender-lens innovation
  • Identifying systemic drivers of the digital gender gap in Africa
  • Co-creating solutions to promote gender-inclusive ecosystems
