[NEWS] BPF GENDER PARTNERS WITH ITU & UN WOMEN'S EQUALS CAMPAIGN
The BPF is collaborating with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the UN University on Computing and Society (UNU-CS) in its important endeavour to research and map projects and initiatives that aim to address different gender digital divides around the world.
By being a data partner of the ITU and UN Women’s EQUALS initiative, the IGF will contribute to this data-gathering process with the objective of helping stakeholders better understand women and girls’ diverse needs in accessing and using the Internet, promoting gender equality, and investigating how ICTs can be leveraged to empower women and girls in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The BPF's final output resource has been published and can be downloaded here.
This is the final output resource produced by a community of participants in IGF best practice forum (BPF) on gender and access in 2016. This is also the second resource produced by the IGF BPF on Gender, which in 2015 published an extensive resource on online abuse and gender-based violence. The BPF Gender’s outputs are considered living resources that will be updated and changed as additional input and comments are received.
