For more information, see the press release and ICRW’s Bridging the Gender Divide in Technology.
Criteria and Prizes: The Women Tools Technology Challenge is open to all types of individuals and organizations (charitable organizations, private companies, or public entities) from all countries. We consider all entries that:
- Reflect the theme of the challenge: Women Tools Technology: Building Opportunities & Economic Power
- Indicate growth beyond the conceptual stage and have demonstrated impact and sustainability. While we support new ideas at every stage and encourage their entry, the judges are better able to evaluate programs that are beyond the conceptual stage and have demonstrated a proof of impact.
- Are submitted in English, Spanish, French, or Portuguese.
The top three entries will win USD $5000 each. Winners of the Women Tools Technology Challenge will also be invited to participate in a collaboration workshop with Ashoka’s Changemakers and ExxonMobil during summer.
