The International Women's Day (IWD) is a global day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, while making a worldwide call to action to strengthen efforts for supporting gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.

FAO, IFAD and WFP will host an event that will discuss the impact of the digital gender gap on widening economic and social inequalities, while acknowledging the role that bold, transformative actions, inclusive technologies, and accessible education can play in accelerating gender equality in agri-food systems and creating new opportunities to benefit women and men equally.

This year’s IWD theme recognizes and celebrates the women and girls who are championing the advancement of transformative technology and digital education.
