Connecting Women to Opportunity Through Technology
According to the “Women and the Web” report published by Intel and its partners, nearly 25 percent fewer women are online than men in developing countries in the study, and the gap was 43 percent in Sub-Saharan Africa. Through the Intel® She Will Connect program and other digital empowerment 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 so that they can connect to health, government, and educational information, as well as new economic and entrepreneurship opportunities. We have a goal of reaching 5 million women in Sub-Saharan Africa where the Internet gender gap is the greatest.
A mobile learning lab is bringing technology skills directly to women in rural and underserved areas of Kenya, to connect them to opportunities through Intel® She Will Connect.
