About the EQUALS Global Partnership:
In 2017, ITU, GSMA, UNWOMEN, United Nations University (UNU) and the International Trade Centre (ITC), launched EQUALS, the Global Partnership for Gender Equality in the Digital Age. EQUALS is a multi-stakeholder initiative that brings together international organizations, private sector corporations, government agencies, civil society, and academia to address the growing digital gender divide. In
collaboration with partners, EQUALS aims to achieve equal access and use of digital technologies; support equal participation of women in STEM programs; and promote equal participation of women professionals and leaders in the technology sector and digital entrepreneurship by 2030.

About the EQUALS Leadership Coalition:
ITC co-leads the EQUALS Leadership Coalition with UN Women, which aims to address the barriers that prevent women from rising to the top of their chosen technology field. Coalition members from leading private and public sector organizations will strive to empower women as ICT leaders, creators, and
entrepreneurs through a range of actions that leverage their global presence and build on their own success stories including training and mentoring women to create tech businesses and readily assume leadership roles; facilitating better access to finance and funding through venture capital opportunities, angel
investors and impact investors; and identifying regulatory and policy barriers that are limiting women’s ability to access and monetize opportunities. For more information on the Coalition, visit https://www.equals.org/leadership.
