WHO WE ARE
WomenConnect! is a Geeks Without Frontiers initiative that focuses on gender equality and women’s empowerment by providing access to connectivity, technology and innovation to give women unprecedented opportunities and education to break trends, boost technology-driven innovative solutions for sustainable development and remove the barriers to the advancement of women and girls.
As women continue to be disproportionately affected by discrimination, exploitation, poverty and have limited access to education, training, healthcare, credit and technology -- it is part of our mission to empower women -- not only for the well-being and security of individuals, but families and communities globally.
Our hope is to develop partnerships and programs that provide a vehicle directly to WomenConnect! by creating viable opportunities and the tools necessary to facilitate sustainable development, help close the Digital Divide, achieve the UN Sustainable Development goals and economic empowerment towards gender equality, inclusive economic growth, and poverty education.
Our commitment to supporting women and girls will build critical foundations for the future as we ensure that all Geeks Without Frontiers strategies and initiatives are established with gender analysis and institute metrics to measure the gender impact of our initiatives.
