Join us in celebrating the strides made in women’s economic empowerment through digital innovation this International Women’s Day.

The World Bank offices in Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe invite you to tune in to a round-table discussion featuring beneficiaries of the World Bank-supported Digital Malawi Project and representatives of the Tanzania Secondary Education Quality Improvement Project (SEQUIP).

Engage with us in a moderated discussion, participate in Q&A sessions, and take advantage of the chance to network with peers and experts committed to fostering sustainable solutions for women’s economic empowerment through technology.

Stakeholders from Zambia and Zimbabwe active in the digital space will also contribute to the conversation, focusing on digital innovation and gender equality in education and economic opportunities.

This event is designed to benefit the young project beneficiaries as a learning opportunity, as well as project implementers, civil society, policymakers, and development partners.
Academia, think tanks, and private sector representatives will also be in attendance.

The Digital Malawi Project has been pivotal in developing digital skills among Malawian youth, particularly young girls, by providing grants and partnering with technology hubs to foster entrepreneurship and innovation. With over 17,000 individuals impacted, the majority being women, the project has facilitated training in cutting-edge technologies and supported business ventures in diverse sectors.

The Tanzania Secondary Education Quality Improvement Project (SEQUIP) is enhancing secondary education through digitally enabled teaching and learning.
