Dear colleagues and friends,

To mark International Women’s Day 2023 celebrated under the global theme “DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality”, the Universal Postal Union (UPU) invites you to join an online event under the theme:

Innovating equality: The Post as an engine of digital empowerment

Posts have a vast potential to facilitate the digital empowerment of women and girls in their communities through related study and career programmes, awareness-raising campaigns, programmes for women-led start-ups and MSMEs, and innovative investment-generating projects.

Whether postal organizations already possess a strong digital inclusion record, or they are just embarking on this journey, the UPU is dedicated to supporting them on this core social mission. On 9 March 2023, a cross-sector panel of digital empowerment leaders will share best practices and address some of the key related questions, including:

  1. How can Posts use gender equality to meet their digital transformation goals?
  2. What are the various ways that the Post can support women and girls in the technology sector and help them succeed?
  3. How can Posts help encourage women-led innovations?
  4. How can postal digital services be used to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment society-wide?

The interactive online discussion in English and French will feature a diverse panel of speakers from the ICT sector, the UN, and the Post, a special address by the UPU Director General and a Q&A session with the international audience.
