Workshop on “Empowering Women through ICT”

13th June 2018 – Cyber Tower1, Ebène


Gender Mainstreaming is a globally accepted strategy for promoting gender equality. Mainstreaming is not an end in itself but a strategy, an approach, a means to achieve the goal of gender equality. It involves ensuring that gender perspectives and attention to the goal of gender equality are central to all activities - policy development, research, advocacy/dialogue, legislation, resource allocation, and planning, implementation and monitoring of programmes and projects.
 
This workshop focussed on encouraging more women to work in the ICT sector. In fact, in terms of women employment in IT in general, it has been found that while 3 out of 4 technical jobs are held by men, but the gender gap is even more significant when it comes to cybersecurity.
