In line with this year’s International Women’s Day theme, DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality, WRI celebrates the many women and girls that are leading the evolution of transformative technology and digital education.

As part of our GFW Voices series, we invite you to our virtual discussion on May 31 where you will hear from a panel of women changemakers from the GFW community who are employing technology to protect forests and community rights across Latin America, Southeast Asia and West Africa.

Our speakers will reflect on how forest monitoring data and technology has impacted the lives of people in communities that depend on forests, and share lessons learned from their experiences as leaders in this space, including advice for the next generation of forest defenders.

This event will be in English with simultaneous translation to Spanish and French.
