The eWorldwide group is organizing a thematic workshop on ‘Acceleration of Girls Education and Rights to Ensure Sustainable Gender Empowerment through ICTs’ at WSIS Forum, Geneva, Switzerland on 5th May 2016 at 3.00 pm to 4.30 pm

Description of the Session:

Knowledge, information and critical thinking are the basic foundations to enable sustainable empowerment of women. Therefore, it stands to reason that if we are to overcome decades of rhetoric and lack of progress in obtaining equity and equality for women, we need to start early in addressing the challenges and barriers young girls encounter.

A paradigm shift needs to be developed that is practical, simple and cost effective manner to help overcome the cultural and traditional barriers that prevent girl’s education, empowerment and inclusion in society.

ICTs are playing a pivotal role in transforming the landscape of the education sector by fast tracking ‘access and delivery of quality education’ to rural communities, particularly supporting developing countries to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This session will be conducted in an interactive manner to maximize the participants’ engagement with the international multi-stakeholder panelists from the private sector, government, civil society and development agencies.

 

Outcomes:

This interactive session will highlight case studies and share practical examples on how ICTs have been used to accelerate girl’s access to education and overcome cultural barriers;

  • How ICTs have changed the landscape for girls access to quality education and information
  • How access to education is building the foundation for critical thinking, awareness of girls rights and developing their inspirations and aspirations for their future
  • How ICTs are providing new avenues to overcome cultural challenges and barriers that prevent girls access to education
  • How ICTs are having a multiplier effect in the education sector by providing access to quality education in rural communities with limited resources, infrastructure and providing virtual teachers
  • How ICTs have changed the landscape for girls access to quality education and information
