Women in The Digital Economy Fund

WiDEF is committed to closing the gender digital divide by scaling evidence-based, proven solutions that improve women’s livelihoods, economic security and resilience.

We aspire to shifting the trajectory of digital ecosystems so that women and marginalized populations, including youth and young women; disabled, indigenous, LGBTQI+, and rural women, have equitable access to safe, affordable, and meaningful online participation.

To realize these goals, the WiDEF Consortium is announcing the first round of grant funding available for solutions working to close the gender digital divide.

Support from WiDEF can include funding ranging from $500,000 – $1,500,000.

Awardees will also receive dedicated technical assistance on program design, implementation and measurement.
