Dear all,

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,

The APC team
