Dear friends,

The Association for Progressive Communications (APC) in collaboration
with International Development Research Centre (IDRC) is mapping gender
dimensions in past, ongoing and future research work concerning ICTs,
including less formal  research initiatives such as analytical articles
or reports. We will really appreciate if you can fill the survey and/or
distribute it among your networks.

More attention is now being given to ensure that gender dimensions or
analysis is integrated into research, particularly when trying to
understand inclusion and variable access for women and gender
non-conforming people, and their ability to use  information and
communication technologies (ICTs) to improve their livelihoods, quality
of life and rights.  Yet there are many challenges in integrating gender
dimensions comprehensively and effectively in programmatic work,
especially by organisations that focus primarily on Internet rights
and/or ICTs for development (ICT4D).

With  aims to improve gender-related outcomes, to strengthen gender
analysis and inclusion in research projects, and to bolster the field of
gender and ICTs with the development of a gender-focused network, this
mapping exercise will help provide an overview of key actors and current
trends relating to gender, and will help to identify the main gaps in
current initiatives.

It will take about 15-20 minutes of your time to fill out this survey
with details of your work, projects you find inspiring and exceptional,
problems or issues you have faced. Your responses can be anonymous, and
your privacy will be respected.

Thank you,
Katerina and Namita
