I’d blush if I could: Closing gender divides in digital skills through education
1 Jan 2019
The ‘I’d blush if I could’ Report was drafted in collaboration with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and the EQUAL Skills Coalition. The first section of ‘I’d blush if I could’ provides recommendations on how to help women and girls develop strong digital skills. Section two explores the ‘ICT gender equality paradox’ i.e, countries/regions with low gender equality see more women complete degrees in technology. Lastly, the Report explores how AI-powered assistants provoke gender biases and what can be done to prevent the widening of the gender divide.
