On Friday, April 23, 3pm Manila time, I will discuss our women-led open knowledge stewardship program using free and open source data collection, mapping and analytics tools and pioneering technologies. Effective humanitarian and development action should be led by the women who are at the center of the social and economic prosperity of their communities. Mapping and data science jobs also provide meaningful and productive work with fair wages, while working safely from home.
This the first Asian Development Bank webinar in a new series that will spotlight the opportunities and challenges of ensuring the accelerated transition to the digital economy is jobs-rich and inclusive. The discussion will explore three different models that leverage technological innovation to help marginalized groups access digital work.
The webinar will:
- Share findings from the experience of leading innovative digital skills and employment organizations in the region
- Highlight opportunities and challenges to scale what works to support inclusive and sustainable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic
- Identify how governments and the private sector can work together, including opportunities for ADB engagement
