European Parliament Adopts Resolution on Empowering Women in the Digital Age

european_parliamentThe European Parliament has adopted a resolution on gender equality and empowering women in the digital age. The document stresses that improving digital skills and IT literacy presents a unique opportunity for increasing the inclusion of women in the labour market, and increasing the number of women in ICT could contribute to their financial empowerment and independence, resulting in the reduction of the total gender pay gap. The document points out that women remain largely underrepresented in initiatives such as the EU Code Week, ICT for Better Education, the Startup Europe Leaders Club and the Grand Coalition for Digital Jobs, which are aimed at further fostering e-education and e-skills.
