Global Tech Challenge: Solutions for Women
Over 300 million fewer women access the internet in developing countries than men. To bridge the divide, the World Bank Group and CES—the world’s largest technology event—are launching a Global Tech Challenge focusing on digital solutions for women. World Bank Director for Digital Development Boutheina Guermazi tells us more about the challenge, and about the importance of building a more inclusive digital economy.
