SheWorks! received the EQUALS in Tech 2019 award in the Leadership in Tech category for SheWorks! Academy, the online education platform for training women to become successful in the digital economy.
Equals in Tech is a global initiative that distinguishes innovative projects aimed at bridging the gender gap through technology. The ceremony is organized by EQUALS, a coalition founded in 2016 by the International Telecommunications Union together with GSMA, the International Trade Centre, the United Nations University and UN Women to drive the UN Sustainable Development Agenda.
SheWorks! Academy was selected among more than 200 initiatives focused on closing the gap in markets where women are excluded from access to technology. The initiative is supported by the Inter-American Development Bank and companies such as Facebook, SAP, Microsoft, Cisco Systems and Google.
‘We want to close the unemployment gender gap by connecting the dots between talent, online education and flexible and digital job opportunities’ said Silvina Moschini, CEO and Founder of SheWorks!
