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.

Building a Data-Use Culture with the Principles for Digital Development
Limited Capacity seats available

We know that better use of better data drives better health decisions. But how do we create a culture that supports data quality and use? The Better Immunization Data (BID) Initiative turned to the Principles for Digital Development in developing a user-driven methodology to improve data quality and build a data use culture across the health system. BID is jointly designing a suite of solutions, including an immunization registry, with a local user advisory group (UAG). The UAG provides local context, advocates for interventions, and helps battle user skepticism. This session will share about our approach and initial results from Tanzania and Zambia.
