 Informative and interactive sessions at the GWI 32nd Triennial Conference
Members of GWI’s National Federations and Associations (NFAs) gave a variety of outstanding presentations, seminars and workshops at the GWI 32nd Triennial Conference in Cape Town, South Africa, 21-23 August 2016. Workshops and seminars by members included presentations on their own experiences of implementing women’s empowerment projects, advocacy initiatives that have had impact, and pertinent research from a number of studies related to women’s and girls’ education and empowerment. In particular, a large amount of discussion was generated around promoting girls and women in the information and technology (ICT) and science sectors. Media Interest in the challenges and achievements of women working in the field of banking resulted in an ETV interview with two members from the South African Association of University Women (SAAWG), as well as an interview of GWI outgoing President, Catherine Bell. The broadcast will be available to view on the GWI website shortly.

Closing the gender data gap with sex disaggregated data
The collection of sex-disaggregated data is approaching the same level of attention that women’s economic empowerment reached years ago. However, just as achieving women’s economic empowerment is not a straightforward task, collecting data to establish baselines on indicators specifically related to girls and women’s development requires a multi-sectoral approach and global support.  Only three of the 14 indicators for Sustainable Development Goal 5 are being regularly collected in most countries and have accepted international standards for measurement. Increasing the ability and capacity of countries to collect data and report on gender-related indicators also requires greater global financial commitment. GWI advocates for gender disaggregated data as a critical component of monitoring progress on girls’ and women’s empowerment and supports the Addis Ababa Action Agenda (AAAA) in doing so.
