Making innovation and technology work for women

The 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, founded on the principle of 'leaving no one behind' call for transformative shifts, integrated approaches, and innovative solutions to overcome the structural barriers to sustainable development. Innovation and technology provide unpreceded opportunities to reach those who are the most likely to be left behind.

UN Women takes a partnership approach to accelerate industry wide change and remove the barriers to women and girl's advancement in innovation, technology and entrepreneurship. Our industry wide collaboration ensures that future innovations take a gender responsive approach and promote women as innovators with the shared goal of achieving gender equality and women's empowerment.
