Women Rising for Rights – Promoting inclusivity with technology

Join us on International Women’s Day in conversation with three inspiring women who are flipping paradigms, breaking glass ceilings, and innovating to combat inequality and strengthen rights for local communities. Power imbalances and marginalization run rampant in our world, affecting farmers, indigenous peoples, women, local communities, and even everyday citizens. In this Digital Summit, speakers will present their experiences in using innovation and technology to bridge the gap — from implementing authentic bottom-up approaches to give farmers a leading role on an international stage or data democratizing through open source tools that empower local communities. Get inspired by these stories and learn to face global challenges with a creative and innovative spirit.
