The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) recognizes that the gender digital divide significantly hampers the ability of digital technology to help women improve their lives, the stability of their families, and the resilience of their communities. Through the USAID Digital Strategy, the Agency is committed to sharing best practices learned in previous gender and ICT programs, including the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP) Initiative’s WomenConnect Challenge, and ensuring that USAID digital development addresses digital inequalities and mitigates potential risks or harms for women and girls entering the online space. USAID will also incorporate digital literacy and skills-building for women into all development programs that have a digital component.
