In commemoration of International Women’s Day (IWD), ID4Africa is organizing a special LiveCast dedicated to gender issues. The objective of the episode is to provide an assessment of where the gender gaps are in ID systems and identify opportunities to inform policy to rectify these gaps or manage risks of exclusion, especially in a digital world in the Post-COVID era, where women appear to have been disproportionately disadvantaged. Consistent with our commitment to total inclusion, the session will advocate for policy and pragmatic measures that ensure that women and girls are not left behind.

The Call

In light of its importance, ID4Africa will be dedicating an upcoming LiveCast episode to examine, from all angles, the issues impacting gender matters. We are calling on experts, who have informed views on this subject to join an engaging panel moderated by the ID4Africa Executive Chairman, Dr. Joseph Atick.


In this live online session you will be given the opportunity to briefly present some prepared remarks, then engage in a discussion. The panel will include government, industry and development agencies.

Our Objective

To provide concrete guidance to governments about policies, approaches and technologies that have been proven successful in boosting enrollments or that are promising game-changers in that regard.


This LiveCast will be held as part of ID4Africa’s commemoration of International Womens Day.


Date: March 10, 2020

Time: 13h30 – 15h30 GMT

Location: Online – Zoom
