Wrapping up WWW: Women Weave the Web - Our Most Powerful Campaign Yet!
Over the last seven months, your stories on digital inclusion and empowerment have flooded World Pulse in an uproar we never could have imagined! We received over 500 submissions from nearly 70 countries around the world, all advocating for a world where women and girls are empowered to access and harness the transformative power of digital tools.
With your support, the WWW: Women Weave the Web Campaign has already accomplished some amazing feats! A group of four World Pulse community members joined the Alliance for Affordable Internet's Multistakeholder Coalition in Nigeria; World Pulse CEO, Jensine Larsen, shared WWW Campaign testimonies at Rightscon in Silicon Valley; preliminary Campaign results were shared by community member Iffat Rose Gill at the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS +10) in Geneva, and two community members gave their recommendation on digital inclusion at Social Media Week in Nigeria. But we're not even close to finished yet! Throughout the next several months, we'll be making sure that your voices get even more visibility around the world. We're hard at work on:
- Creating a recommendations package analyzing all of the community submissions. The recommendations package will be made available to our partners and our online community to better advocate for women's digital inclusion and empowerment.
- Convening a session at the Internet Governance Forum to share key recommendations with diverse stakeholders.
- Republishing community stories through our global network of partners.
- Presenting campaign recommendations to technology companies through a workshop in San Francisco.
- Releasing an emagazine, highlighting some of the incredible digital inclusion leaders and projects from our community.
- Recognizing outstanding community leaders via the Lynn Syms Prize and Beyond Access Member Opportunity.
Stay tuned to the World Pulse blog and your email to hear about how your voices are making an impact!
