Taking stock: data and evidence on gender equality in digital access, skills and leadership

Taking Stock Report

The inaugural report of the EQUALS Research Group lays the foundation for the EQUALS Partnership agenda by surveying the landscape of knowledge on gender equality as it relates to the three EQUALS action areas – Access, Skills, and Leadership.

It should serve as a planning resource to inform future activities of EQUALS partners and to serve the broader community of policymakers, practitioners, and researchers interested in solving gender inequality challenges in access to information and communication technologies (ICTs), development of basic and advanced ICT skills, and participation in the ICT industry.
