Connecting Women to Opportunity Through Technology

Intel digital empowerment and technology programs connect girls and women around the world to new opportunities

Closing the technology gap

According to the “Women and the Web” report published by Intel and its partners, nearly 25% fewer women are online than men in developing countries in the study, and the gap was 43% in sub-Saharan Africa. Through the Intel® She Will Connect program and other initiatives, Intel is empowering millions of women to connect to a range of new opportunities through technology.

Using an innovative combination of digital literacy training, an online peer network, and gender-relevant content, the Intel® She Will Connect program will help young women acquire or improve digital literacy skills and expand their understanding and use of technology.
