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:
- How can Posts use gender equality to meet their digital transformation goals?
- What are the various ways that the Post can support women and girls in the technology sector and help them succeed?
- How can Posts help encourage women-led innovations?
- 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.
