Overall Scope

The 7th StandICT.eu 2023 "Walk & Talk" webinar will introduce the community to the "Women in ICT Standards".

The link between technology and women is growing stronger every year and clearly reflected in the Sustainable Development Goals 5 on gender equality and the empowerment of women, which includes a specific target on how to leverage technology and ICT assets to fully achieve women’s empowerment.
