On New Opportunities for Women in the Digital Age
14 October 2021
17:00—18:30
The world is at the threshold of several major transformations: the process of globalization is intensifying, demand for energy and production capacity is growing, and new epidemiological threats are emerging. All of this is impacting people’s lives. In addition, new technologies are being developed which have significant potential to accelerate socioeconomic development. The transition to digital technologies is spurring the development of new branches of industry, expanding the potential sales market, and making it easier to provide services. By acquiring new skills in the digital realm, women are presented with new opportunities in today’s environment.

What can be done to get more women working in fast-growing industries? What new tech solutions and ways of developing and supporting women’s initiatives in the new reality exist? What initiatives to increase female participation in the digital economy could complement the UNIDO agenda?
