EQUALS Her Digital Skills was co-founded by EY, GSMA, ITU and W4, and it aims to design and provide access to free, gender transformative, foundational digital skills training, e-skills badges, and e-mentoring for one million women and girls by 2026. The initiative brings together three EQUALS projects into one comprehensive program: Tech4Girls workshops, EQUALS Badges, and e-mentoring.

Our Generation Equality Commitment

Design and provide access to free gender transformative foundational IT skills training and e-mentoring for 1 million women and girls by 2026 via the Her Digital Skills initiative powered by the EQUALS Global Partnership for Gender Equality in the Digital Age.

Her Digital Skills powered by EQUALS will include:

  • Basic introduction to the technical knowledge & education needed for careers in technology through hands on Tech4Girls workshops

  • Access to free, adapted (gender transformative) foundational IT skills training through a committed online platform

  • An EQUALS qualification (“the Digital Badge”) which will boost women’s chances of pursuing further training/studies and access to formal employment in the ICT sector

  • An e-mentoring programme connecting established companies from among the tech and mobile industries to young women to increase interest, involvement, and awareness of the overall role of industry in bridging the gender gap in leadership

 

The overarching goal is to increase the talent pipeline of girls and young women in STEM/STEAM leading to employment and/or internship opportunities.
