Main activities related to gender equality and women's rights

Ibtikar believes that innovations advance gender equality. Ibtikar describes three areas of
innovation that, when they intersect, have the potential to progress women’s empowerment: (1)
technology use, (2) social norm change, and (3) economic resilience. Ibtikar believes that when
girls and women thrive in all these three areas, there is a demonstrable shift in gender relations.
Ibtikar is always testing elements of this approach and building its understanding of the
the intersection between innovation and gender equity.
