How can women and girls of all socioeconomic backgrounds use technology to fully participate and prosper in the economy?
That’s the guiding question behind the Women and Technology challenge at Solve, an initiative of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that identifies and supports lasting solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. This year, the Solve community aims to support innovative solutions that:
· Improve women’s connectivity and access to technology;
· Increase women’s financial inclusion
· Create opportunities for dignified income generation;
· Correct for bias that holds women and girls back.
If you have a solution that addresses this challenge, submit it by August 1, 2017.
The challenge is Co-chaired by Indra Nooyi, – CEO, PepsiCo, and Ursula Burns – Chairman, Xerox. The teams with the best solutions join a community of leaders and change makers who have the resources and expertise to support them. Select solutions enjoy additional opportunities such as grants from the Atlassian Foundation, and an Arts & Culture Mentorship Prize curated by Yo-Yo Ma.
This is a unique opportunity to join a community that is addressing the most pressing challenges of our time!
