This brochure summarises the initial findings of the forthcoming OECD report Bridging the Digital Gender Divide. Prepared at the request of the Australian Government, the report will inform the debate of G20 ministers in charge of the Digital Economy under the 2018 Argentinian G20 Presidency, around policy measures to foster the equitable participation of women in the digital economy.
This brochure was prepared by the OECD Directorate for Science, Technology and Innovation (STI), under the supervision of Gabriela Ramos, OECD Sherpa and Chief of staff. The brochure was prepared for the high-level event on bridging the digital gender divide, hosted by the Government of Australia, at the margin of the 62nd session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women, in New York City, on 14 March 2018.
The work was coordinated by Raffaella Centurelli from the OECD STI Directors Office, headed by Director Andrew Wyckoff and Deputy Director Dirk Pilat. It includes inputs from the OECD Directorate for Education and the OECD Directorate for Employment, Labour and Social Affairs, and draws also on data and analysis from the International Telecommunications Union. Authors and contributions from the OECD Secretariat include, in alphabetical order: Francesca Borgonovi, Josie Brocca, Raffaella Centurelli, Hélène Dernis, Robert Grundke, Stephanie Jamet, Mark Keese, Anna- Sophie Liebender, Luca Marcolin, Carlo Menon, David Rosenfeld and Mariagrazia Squicciarini. Thanks to Angela Gosmann for her valuable help in formatting the report.
