In today’s challenging socio-economic environment, the shift to innovative technologies is a major driver for the development of new industries. Women are at the forefront of the development and integration of new technologies and inventions, driving the global technology market forward. The number of women in high-tech industries is increasing every year, and in this new environment, the development of international cooperation between women in high-tech industries is of particular importance, and has great potential to accelerate economic and social development. How can the Eurasian Women's Forum and international women's associations jointly promote initiatives to increase the participation of women in digital technological and innovation? What initiatives are being implemented at the national and international levels to overcome the digital divide, and how can women's associations help bring women-led projects to the international markets? How can we promote the participation of women in fast-growing sectors of the economy?
