Gender, Empowerment and Technology Working Group Workshop
Limited Capacity seats available

According to the 2016 UN/ITU Broadband Commission report, efforts to increase gender equality in ICT access have stalled after a period of incremental improvements. A week later, the Wall Street Journal ran a story titled: “Why the majority of Indian women will never use a smartphone.” Why is there so much tension between technology, gender, and cultural factors that limit the gender successes our organizations are working so hard to achieve? In this working group, we will explore the current state of gender and ICT4D, conduct simulations in order to help people develop gender-specific indicators, and demonstrate how to uncover new knowledge about culture, community and context critical to any ICT4D program success.

Inmarsat and Planson real life CAMP simulation

In remote locations, available emergency response resources may come up short even with advanced planning for future aid.  Planson’s Ecosystem of Mobile IT Solutions (eMITS), powered by Inmarsat Global Xpress (GX) and BGAN connectivity, is designed to solve this problem by operating where first responders do as a mobile, modular, and interoperable answer to any number of issues in the field.

To better visualize and experience eMITS in action, we have developed a real life scenario featuring critical business requirements and simulated a standard response using only eMITS kits powered by Inmarsat connectivity. Electricity goes down; telephone lines are destroyed; local IT support is minimal; and yet, with eMITS and Inmarsat, all the necessary functions of aid are up and running.

Opening Keynote: Designed for Digital
The digital economy offers a mind-boggling array of threats and opportunities to established organizations. On the one hand, the not for profit sector can seize new approaches to soliciting funds and serving beneficiaries. On the other hand, disrupters to existing models lurk around every corner. How do established organizations redesign themselves to leverage the opportunities of digital? Jeanne will share research conducted by MIT's Center for Information Systems Research which looked at how large, established companies are transforming themselves. We will explore how these findings can be applied to member NGOs.

Inmarsat and Planson real life CAMP simulation

In remote locations, available emergency response resources may come up short even with advanced planning for future aid.  Planson’s Ecosystem of Mobile IT Solutions (eMITS), powered by Inmarsat Global Xpress (GX) and BGAN connectivity, is designed to solve this problem by operating where first responders do as a mobile, modular, and interoperable answer to any number of issues in the field.

To better visualize and experience eMITS in action, we have developed a real life scenario featuring critical business requirements and simulated a standard response using only eMITS kits powered by Inmarsat connectivity. Electricity goes down; telephone lines are destroyed; local IT support is minimal; and yet, with eMITS and Inmarsat, all the necessary functions of aid are up and running.

Inmarsat and Planson real life CAMP simulation

In remote locations, available emergency response resources may come up short even with advanced planning for future aid. Planson’s Ecosystem of Mobile IT Solutions (eMITS), powered with Inmarsat Connectivity, is designed to solve this problem by operating where first responders do as a mobile, modular, and interoperable answer to any number of issues in the field.

To better visualize and experience eMITS in action, we have developed a real life scenario featuring critical business requirements and simulated a standard response using only eMITS kits. Electricity goes down; telephone lines are destroyed; local IT support is minimal; and yet, with eMITS and Inmarsat, all the necessary functions of aid are up and running.

What? So What? Now What? (Joining the data-dots to support program management & delivery & decision-making)
Limited Capacity filling up

It would be great to have the participants of the NGO Reference Model session (http://sched.co/8Og6) converge to have a deeper dive into the specific area of systems to support program management and delivery. As we all gather more data related to programmatic outputs, outcomes and impact, and as we try to align ourselves with global transparency initiatives (such as IATI) we need to improve the coherence and relationships between these new data and the fundraising systems and financial management data-sets in which we have traditionally invested. I have no magic bullet to offer, but I would be happy to talk about how Oxfam is wrestling with this, and would love to hear how others are approaching it too.
