Banyan Global Presents Gender Digital Divide Tools at USAID Digital Sector Council Meeting

On June 3, 2021, Banyan Global presented practical tools and resources to address the Gender Digital Divide at a United States Agency for International Development (USAID) digital sector council meeting. Twenty-five USAID staff representing the Technology Division; Regional Bureaus; Technical Bureaus; and Management, Budget, and Policy attended the meeting.

The Gender Digital Divide Desk ReviewGender Analysis Technical Resource and Risk Mitigation Technical Note support the USAID Digital Strategy through the “Closing the Gender Digital Divide” initiative and its objectives to: (1) scale understanding of the gender digital divide across the Agency; (2) provide tools for USAID staff to support host countries in overcoming the barriers to women’s access and use of digital technology; and (3) provide further evidence of the benefits and risks relating to women’s access to and use of information and communications technology.

The gender digital divide documents were produced under the USAID-funded Women’s Economic Empowerment and Equality Technical Assistance task order through the Advancing the Agenda of Gender Equality (ADVANTAGE) indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract.
