Bridging the Gender Divide: How Technology Can Advance Women Economically

ICRW conducted an assessment of the Intel® Learn program, an education initiative that provides technology education to youth around the world, in order to understand its impact on female learners. The program equips learners with skills in digital literacy, collaboration, creativity, and critical problem solving. ICRW’s assessment found that the strategies and components of the Intel Learn program have successfully targeted girls’ needs and interests, provided girls and women with necessary skills and resources, empowered them to have control over their resources and make decisions, and set them on a path for economic empowerment. Thus, the program offers important lessons on how to enrich the lives of girls and women through technology education.
