Women worldwide are using tech to power movements, learn about and secure their rights, advocate for marginalized groups, and mobilize offline actions. But they say technology needs a transformation of its own. Download the #SheTransformsTech Report to find out what grassroots women and gender-diverse individuals from 60+ countries say individuals, policymakers, and tech companies must do to make tech equitable for all.
At the beginning of the global COVID-19 pandemic, World Pulse, backed by 27 coalition partners, surveyed grassroots women leaders and marginalized communities from around the world on key technology issues and opportunities. The #SheTransformsTech report is the culmination of the year-long campaign and includes data-driven insights, personal narratives, and visionary solutions sourced from women and gender-diverse individuals from more than 60 countries.
The report includes:
- Analysis of more than 530 responses from 60+ countries (400+ survey responses; 130+ personal narratives).
- Key findings, statistics, and recommendations for policymakers, tech companies, and individuals related to digital empowerment, technology access, online safety, and more.
- Stories from women, in their own words, on how they utilize tech for good and how tech can do better to support women’s leadership.
- Special highlights on the impact of COVID-19 on technology access and use; improving access for those with disabilities; and advancing gender-transformative digital skills training.
Along with chronicling the barriers and concerns that limit women’s ability to fully benefit from technology, #SheTransformsTech presents solutions for a way forward.
“In this report, you will read the unheard voices and powerful perspectives of women and gender-diverse individuals from across the world,” said World Pulse Founder and CEO Jensine Larsen. “Taken together, these voices call for nothing less than a fundamental realignment of the priorities of the technology industry and urge us to wake up to the vast leadership potential of women coming online globally to shape a better technology future for us all.”
When you read these insights, promote their weight, and take action, you will be a part of transforming our current dangerous and biased technology trajectory into an inclusive, supportive digital pathway for us all.
Women have spoken. Now it’s time for the world to listen.
