Awards: winners will be flown from around the globe to attend and receive their awards in Berlin
Each year, groundbreaking initiatives from around the world are invited to submit nominations for their work to bridge the gender digital divide. The annual EQUALS in Tech Awards are organized and presented by the EQUALS Global Partnership – a network of 90+ organizations, companies, UN agencies and research institutions. Organizations and individuals can nominate their own initiatives or those of others for an award in one of the following categories:
Access: Initiatives related to improving women’s and girls’ digital technology access, connectivity and security
Skills: Initiatives that support the development of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills of women and girls
Leadership (In two subcategories):
- Initiatives focused on promoting women in decision-making roles within the ICT field
- Initiatives promoted by tech sector companies to bridge the digital gender divide
Research: Initiatives prioritizing research on gender digital divides and producing reliable evidence to tackle diversity issues within STEM and computing fields.
The call for nominations is open to all individuals and organizations, regardless of their languages and nationalities, who wish to submit projects aimed at advancing gender equality using ICTs. However, your nomination form should be submitted in English.
The winners receive a paid trip to the awards ceremony (for the 2019 awards, this will be held in Berlin), and that’s not all. They also get to meet and mingle with like-minded entrepreneurs, investors, activists, teachers, and leaders. And they join an Advisory Panel that chooses future award winners.
