Strategy planning workshop of the feminist network on Gender, Development and Information Society Policies (GDISP)

2007

This meeting, organised by IT for Change, the Association for Progressive Communications, the International Women’s Tribune Centre, ISIS International, and Gloria Bonder (General Coordinator of the Regional UNESCO Chair Women, Science and Technology in Latin America), was held on 5-7 October 2007 in Bengaluru (India). Its goals were to (1) conduct a gender analysis of the policy ecology of the information society and the approaches of critical institutional players; (2) evolve an action plan for research and advocacy, and (3) develop the structure and processes that facilitate and strengthen the work of the network.

Besides, IT for Change is partnering with the Association for Progressive Communications (APC) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) amongst others to establish a Community of Expertise (CoE) on ICT Policy and Finance for Social, Community and Public Entrepreneurship under the UN Global Alliance for ICT and Development (UN GAID).
