Empowering Girls through Digital Education: Reaching All those Left Behind
In honor of International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, SACSS is co-sponsoring a CSW 2023 Parallel Event on Empowering Girls through Digital Education titled “Reaching All Those Left Behind!”
SACSS Executive Director and AIWC Principal Representative to the UN, Sudha Acharya, will be participating in this important event, which will examine the troubling impact of the digital literacy gap on the empowerment and future prospects of girls. Panelists will also explore solutions for reaching the most vulnerable girls currently left behind by the Digital Divide. According to the UNGEI “A generation of girls risks being left outside the labor force or trapped in vulnerable or low-quality employment, due to a lack of skills, absence of quality jobs, and gendered expectations of their roles as caregivers.” With digital education being a prerequisite for success in the workplace, it will be critical to bridge the digital gender gap and ensure that all girls receive the training and skills they need to succeed. This webinar, presented by All India Women’s Conference (AIWC), the NGO Committee on Human Rights, NY, the International Federation of Settlements and Neighborhood Centers (IFS) and South Asian Council for Social Services (SACSS) will examine the troubling impact of the digital literacy gap on the empowerment and future prospects of girls and explore solutions for reaching the most vulnerable girls who are currently being left behind. This is a virtual event open to anyone, anywhere in the world.
Monday, March 13th
