Innovation and technology provide unprecedented opportunities to reach those most likely to be left behind. Through engagement and partnerships such as the Global Innovation Coalition for Change, UN Women believes we can all work together to help women and girls to design, shape and benefit from the technological transformations and innovations changing our world. We are grateful to all of our members for their ongoing support.
