Women and the Web: Bridging the Gender Internet Gap in Developing Countries
Start Date: 2/25/2013Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Date: 2/25/2013End Time: 5:00 PM
Event Description

Renee Wittemyer will discuss the data on the large Internet gender gap in developing countries and the social and economic benefits of securing Internet access for women. Recent studies find that on average – across the developing world – nearly 25 percent fewer women than men have access to the Internet and the gap soars to nearly 45 percent in sub-Saharan African regions. Wittemyer will discuss this research and a call to action to double the number of women and girls online from 600 million today to 1.2 billion in 3 years. Wittemyer, director of social impact in Intel Corporation’s Corporate Responsibility Office, develops strategies for Intel’s girls and women’s campaign and manages strategic alliances with USAID, NGOs, and U.N. Women
