International Women's Day 2023
ABOUT INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY
The International Women’s Day (IWD) 2023 focuses on the theme DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality. According to the UNWomen, this theme is aligned with the priority theme for the upcoming 67th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women, Innovation and technological change, and education in the digital age for achieving gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.
At the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) we are aligning to this year’s IWD theme to reflect on, celebrate and share the various digital innovations and technologies that have been developed by our scientists that promote gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.
We see this as a great opportunity to highlight as well as promote ILRI technologies that also presents an opportunity to further popularise the digital technologies, and enhance their uptake amongst research institutions, academia, governments and other development partners.
We hope to have more partners engaged and reached through this campaign, among them, other research centres and investors in the livestock sector including governments who can take up these digital technologies to ensure better livestock for all.
On this page, you will find short articles pointing you to the various ILRI digital technologies and the contact persons to reach out should you desire to.
As part of our activities to mark this day, we will be talking about this topic to our partners across CGIAR and beyond.
