Nomination Form – GEM-TECH Awards 2016
Welcome message
ITU and UN Women are pleased to announce the call for nominations for the 2016 GEM-TECH Awards. The 2014 and 2015 nominations and winners were incredibly inspiring and we look forward to learning about, showcasing and recognizing more of the critical work that is taking place around the world to ensure that girls and women achieve digital equality in all its dimensions.

Gender equality and women’s empowerment is a central goal and ICTs have been recognized as a key means of implementation in the new UN 2030 Agenda. The GEM TECH Awards can play an important role in highlighting what works and where initiatives can be scaled and further investments made. Moreover, they showcase the tremendous talent and determination of women to ensure that technology and its application are relevant and responsive to their needs.

So please nominate yourself or others – civil society, public sector, UN system and international organizations, private sector or academia – who have done exceptional work to:

• Apply Technology for Women’s Empowerment and Digital Inclusion: initiatives related to women's social, economic, political empowerment, combatting gender-based violence (both offline and online), and driving sustainable development.

• Promote Women in the Technology Sector: initiatives that promote more gender equality in ICT/STEM education and careers, especially initiatives where girls and women are cultivated as creators, developers, leaders and decision-makers.

• Develop Gender Responsive ICT Governance, Policy and Access: initiatives focused on new legislation, policy frameworks or internal corporate strategy to improve women's access, connectivity, security, digital literacy and citizenship, skills development and rights.

The nominations will be open until the 31 July 2016.

Best of luck!
