A new study from the International Center for Research on Women, “Bridging the Gender Divide: How Technology Can Advance Women Economically,” has inspired Ashoka Changemakers to launch a technology challenge to improve the lives of women and their families in developing countries. Ashoka Changemakers is an online community for those who want to turn innovative ideas into action to solve social problems. With financial support from ExxonMobil, Ashoka and the ICRW aim to stimulate entrepreneurship and non-traditional partnerships among businesses, non-profits, and local groups to advance economic opportunities for women.
