While the global advancement of women over the last few years cannot go unnoticed, much work remains to reach gender equality. Innovative approaches are needed to ensure that women – from entrepreneurs to informal workers to C-suite executives – are empowered to actively engage in their economies. Technology is a unique avenue to advance the economic empowerment of women and girls. However, technology can also inhibit women’s empowerment by enabling harassment and other unintended consequences.

The SEEP Women’s Economic Empowerment Working Group will host a Twitter Chat on March 12, 2019 to explore these issues and celebrate International Women’s Day.

We invite you to join our member organizations for a dynamic and engaging conversation and exchange of resources and tools highlighting technology and innovation in WEE.

Contribute to the discussion with hashtag #WEECHAT2019 and follow us @TheSEEPNetwork!
