The Mobile Gender Gap Report 2022: Virtual Launch

Wednesday, June 15, 2022

Wednesday 15 June 2022 13:00- 14:00 (GMT+1) Venue: LinkedIn Live

Join the Mobile Gender Gap Report 2022 launching event to hear the latest data and insights on the mobile gender gap across low- and middle-income countries. You’ll also learn how GSMA partners are working tirelessly to improve digital and financial inclusion for women.

Over the past two years, the COVID-19 pandemic has reinforced the importance of access to mobile and mobile internet. Access to mobile provides women with a range of opportunities to improve their lives, including information and services related to income generation, education, health, safety and personal well-being. These opportunities are even more critical as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disproportionately affect women.

Sizing the mobile gender gap and generating country-level data draws attention to this issue and provides key evidence to inform action, which is needed now more than ever. After years of progress towards women’s equal digital inclusion, we are now seeing a slowdown and, in some cases, a reversal. Significant and coordinated efforts are urgently needed to ensure that women do not continue to be disproportionately impacted by the ongoing pandemic and left behind in a more digitised society.

The Mobile Gender Gap Report 2022 will be published on Wednesday 15 June here.
