The ITU Arab regional Office is organizing the ITU Regional Conference on ICT for Women in the Arab Region: ICT for Women’s Empowerment, at the kind invitation of OGERO Telecom, Under the Patronage of the Ministry of Telecommunications of Lebanon, and in collaboration with the Arab Women Organization (AWO), Internet Society (ISOC), World Bank Group, and the Lebanese League for Women in Business (LLWB), in Beirut, Lebanon.

This conference aims to shed light on the importance of digital skills for women’s empowerment and link it to the employment opportunities by showcasing success stories from the region.
