Policy Agenda: Technology and innovation for gender equality

This Policy Agenda sets out our collective advocacy positions regarding technology and innovation for gender equality.

This Policy Agenda offers a framing for advocacy efforts around the rapidly changing world of technology and online media. It looks at some of the key technological developments impacting work with men and boys within the context of broader social justice trends.

It offers advocacy insights on harmful and patriarchal trends in digital spaces, from online misogyny and so-called ‘incels’, to extreme concentrations of wealth and power created by giant tech firms.

Broadly, it underlines the need to develop a better understanding of the digital contexts in which these trends are moving.
