Globesight is proud to be joining the Action Coalition on Technology and Innovation for Gender Equality as a Commitment Maker. The partnership is part of the Generation Equality Fourm convened by UN Women and co-chaired by the Governments of France and Mexico. As part of Action Coalition 5, we aim to close the gender digital divide across generations and will work diligently towards creating opportunities for women and girls to use, lead & design tech & innovation with freedom & boundless potential. Globesight looks forward to working diligently with our peers to advance the Coalition’s agenda and push for women’s digital rights and inclusion, with the start of the Mobilize Millions initiative.
As part of our Commitment to GEF, the Mobilize Millions initiative is dedicated to eliminating the stark mobile phone gender gap across low and middle-income countries, specifically in South Asia where it is most prevalent. To that effect, Globesight hopes to mobilize the private sector and other key stakeholders around the mobile gender gap as well as for accelerating progress on the four core Actions determined by the Action Coalition.
The Generation Equality Forum is a catalytic moment for gender equality. Convened by UN Women and co-chaired by the Governments of France and Mexico, with the leadership and participation of youth and civil society, the Forum is a once-in-a-generation moment to advance global gender equality. By bringing together governments, corporations, and changemakers from around the world, the Forum can define concrete, ambitious and transformative actions to achieve immediate and irreversible progress towards gender equality.
At Globesight, we strongly support the Forum’s vision of achieving gender equality across the globe. We are proud for this opportunity to make a difference alongside UN Member States, civil society, women’s rights organizations, international organizations, UN agencies, philanthropic entities, youth-led organizations, and other private sector entities.
