Winners emerge @2020 Equals in Tech award

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

The 2020 EQUALS in Tech Award winners have emerged in demonstration of the dedication, optimism and creativity needed to close the digital gender divide, reports ITREALMS.

The winners were selected by an expert panel of EQUALS Global Partnership representatives as well as former award winners.
 

Winners were announced in each of five categories—Access, Skills, Leadership in Tech, Leadership in SME, and Research—at an online ceremony taking place as part of the programme of activities surrounding the annual Internet Governance Forum.
 
ITREALMS recalls that the Access category for instance, recognizes individuals and initiatives working to improve women’s and girls’ digital technology access, connectivity and security. EQUALS co-founding partner GSMA presented the 2020 EQUALS in Tech Award in the Access Category to App Laudelina.
 
App Laudelina is a mobile app that offers Brazilian domestic workers online access to information that improves work conditions and financial management. For example, users can access labor rights in various languages, a benefits calculator, a list of protection agencies and a peer social network. The app also allows reporting of accidents, harassment or other problems to improve safety. 
 
Putting access into action, App Laudelina demonstrates the power and potential of connectivity for all.
